While getting ready to take a bath, New Year's Eve.
Norah: I have to go potty. I want to stand up.
Me: Um, I don't think that's going to work. Please don't try.
Norah: Daddy stands up.
Me: Yes, well, Daddy's body is different from yours, and daddies and boys can stand up when they pee.
Norah: Yeah. [thoughtful pause] Daddy's got all hanging-down things.
Me: [mental note to tell Rob to put on pants before leaving shower] Yes.
Norah: I don't have hanging-down things.
Me: No. You have girl parts, and they're all inside your body.
Norah: Yes. In my VIRGINIA.
