But last week was something new. Natalie sat on the couch with PS3 controller in hand (not realizing which right buttons to push.. she definitely takes after me) and James is sitting in the black chair off to the side, controller in his hand too. While playing a video game a conversation with taunting and teasing begins:
James: "I'm going to beat you Natalie!"
Natalie: "nuuhh uhhh, I'm going to win because you are a girl!!" (nice comeback)
James: "No I'm not I don't have a vagina Natalie!!!!!" (yelling it with frustration in his voice)
Natalie: "You DOOOOO have a vagina!!!" (yelling it with a smile)
James: "I have a penis, so I'm a boy."
And both of them just giggle.
Well there is one big lesson I've learned here. Both of my kids know the proper terms for their body parts. My job is done.
