Talking to the Boy
Mommy are you a lady.

Yes, you are a boy.
And my sister is a little girl.
And daddy isn’t a lady he’s a MAN!
Mommy why aren’t the Girl a boy?
Because she’s a girl.
Because she’s not a boy.
But why is she not a boy?
Because God made her a girl.
I don’t know.
But why did God make her a girl?
I don’t know.
But why is she a girl.
[exasperated] Because she is a girl she’s not a boy. She has girl parts not boy parts, just because.
[Also exasperated] BUT WHY????

[Under breath and sarcastically] Sorry about that, I’ll try harder next time.
