Warning- Potty Talk Ahead

So, this is not one of the most modest posts, but funny nonetheless.

I never take kids in the bathroom with me.
I let them stay on the other side of the door unless we are out and it can't be helped.
I am a big believer in everyone getting a little private time while using the bathroom.
This can be difficult when they are little and I have listened to a lot of screaming toddlers in my day, but it works for me.

So, it was an oddity that I had to bring the little guy in the bathroom with me at church last Sunday. And as he spoke I realized how odd it really was.

Little Guy: Mom, do you have to poop?

Me: No, just pee.

Little Guy: Then why is the seat down?

Me: (realizing he thinks I stand like he does) because women sit when they pee.

I then pull down my pants with my long shirt so he doesn't see anything.

Little Guy: Mom, if you don't sit, then where is your pee pee gun?

Me: I don't have one. God makes girls and boys different.

Little Guy: That's weird.

Then yesterday morning I was looking for clothes for a shower when he came in my room.

Little Guy: Mom, whatcha doing?

Me: Looking for underwear for my shower.

Little Guy: Oh, mom you wear pull-ups at night, too? (he says this while he touches my bottom to feel for a pull-up).

Me: No, son, I wear underwear at night.

Little Guy: That's weird.

Incidentally, if you read this post, here is an update.
The little guy wore his band-aid on his thumb for about 3 weeks and does not suck his thumb anymore!!
It is amazing, but he has a hard time falling asleep and night and soothing himself.
I am sure that will get better as well.
Thanks for everyone's input.
I really kept thinking about Crystal saying that I should think about everything he might touch in pre-school and then put his thumb in his mouth.
That was just about enough to gross me out. LOL

Got any good plans this weekend?
