Lessons in Relationships from a 2.5 year old

Aidan has been trying to understand (or make us understand) different relationships within our family. Here is what he thinks about Uncle Dael...

Aidan: Aaron is my little brother.
Mom: What is Lilly?
Aidan: She is my sister.
Lilly: I am your big sister (because she has to get that "big" part in there)
Aidan: Uncle Dael is my brother too.
Mom: No, Uncle Dael is my brother.
Aidan: He is not, he is my brother.
Mom: No, he is my brother, that makes him your uncle.
Aidan: No.
Mom: Then what is Uncle Dael?
Aidan: He is my friend.
Mom: Yes he is and he is your uncle.
Aidan: (exasperated) No!
Mom: Then what is Uncle Dael to you?
Aidan: (thinks for a second) Really tall.

Lessons in Anatomy from a 2.5 year old

We were getting ready to head out for a walk this nice sunny day. Aidan doesnt want to get his diaper changed, I am not sure how this conversation came about but here is what happened:

Aidan: Lilly does not have a penis
Mom: She doesn't?
Aidan: No, only I have a penis
Mom: That is because she is a girl.
Aidan: I have a penis, Aaron has a penis, Lilly and you don't have a penis.
Mom: That's right, we are girls and you and Aaron are boys. What does Daddy have?
Aidan: Daddy doesnt have a penis.
Mom: He doesn't?
Aidan: No.
Mom: Well what does Daddy have then? He is a boy like you.
Aidan: No he is not.
Mom: What does Daddy have then?
Aidan: He has a bum. A big bum. (then turns away obviously done with my silly questions, like geez mom...)
