i started listening at:

bennett: "why?"

ella (in a very motherly, grown up voice): "because God made boys and girls differently."

bennett: "oh

ella: "that's why you have a 'peanut' and i don't."

bennett: "oh."

ella: "little boys and grown ups have peanuts. but girls don't have one."

bennett: "oh."

ella begins a song: "you have a peanut and i don't... you have a peanut and i don't..."


maybe its time for them to not use the bathroom at the same time.

(here's the thing. years ago, when ella asked what "it" was called, i told her the correct word. but she heard "peanut." i did not correct her. because "peanut" is a far less embarrassing word to be repeated with giggles in public. and also, i find it hilarious when someone says, "i just had peanuts on the airplane" and my children look at each other and burst out laughing. equally as funny, when someone said, "i put peanuts in the cookies." ella looked very, very confused and couldn't wait to tell bennett, who laughed hysterically.)
