This is an inadvertent guest post from my Mom.
She picks up Finn from school and most days will email Dokey, Double B and I some tidbit he’s shared. It is usually hilarious because my nephew, as well as being freaking adorable and smart as a whip, is a total crack up. Please keep in mind that Finn is not yet four years old.
So yesterday she emails us this:
Today I picked up our happy little man Finn who was seen hugging and kissing in the playground with his girlfriend Nadia. Actually, he was trying to sweep with a broom just his size as one of the teachers was sweeping the leaves off the walkway and Nadia kept hooking him with her arm around his neck and kissing him until he gave up and laid down on the sidewalk. She followed and they both laid there in the sun shine smiling up at the sky. Priceless moment for a Grandma.
When we got in the car and had our usual conversation which went something like-
“How was school today?’
“Ok. I got a cookie today but it didn’t have sugar in it.”
“Did you see any birds today? I saw a hummingbird last night at dusk right before it gets dark. They must like to eat before they sleep.”
“Well actually they are probably nocturnal.”
I laughed and said, “Do you know what that means?”
He said, “It means that they sleep during the day and are awake at night!”
I said ‘very good Finn’ but I am actually thinking “Holy Crap! This kid is smart!”
But then we somehow get to the topic of penises.
(INTERJECTION: This happens to me all the time. Penises have a way of cropping up in conversation. Clearly this is genetic.)
I told him I got the pictures out of our trip to the Trek and there is a picture of the black bear he liked sleeping. He said, “I saw his penis.” I inquired, “How? He was sleeping.” And he said, “It was sticking up in the air and he put it on the brown bear’s vagina.” **
I am not making this stuff up honest!!! I don’t think you will need to have the birds and the bees talk with him you guys.
**I’m not sure if this is a typo of my Mom’s or if Finn really said the penis was ON the vagina, not IN. Because if he thinks you put it ON then Doke & Double B do have some explaining to do. But maybe later. Like when he is at least 5.
