The best questions from kids come out of left field.
(note, this conversation was a combination of ASL and spoken English.)
Today during the lunch, straight out of that black hole in left field, Axel says, "mom. Asher a girl."
Me: No, Asher is a boy. What is Angela? Boy or girl?
Me: No, Angela is a girl. What are you? Boy or girl?
Me: (a bit surprised by his answer because I'm pretty sure we've discussed this.) You are a boy, Axel. What is Abel?
Axel: Abel boy
Me: Right! What is Asher?
Me: Axel, if a person has a penis, they are a boy. Do you have a penis?
Axel: Hmmmm yes.
Me: Does Asher have a penis?
Axel: hmmmm (scratches his chin) Yes.
Me: So his he a boy or girl?
Axel: Asher boy.
Angela: (Very excited!) I have a penis! I'm a girl!
Me: Angela, you have a vagina. You are a girl, just like Mom.
Angela: (smacks self in forehead) Oh my gosh I forgot!
Ok, clearly we need to do some body awareness teaching! I know we covered this at some time but remedial teaching is in order.
