The One Where Ellie Declares She Wants a Willy During Sunday Tea

I wish I was Dad,
Said my four year old girl,
As she chewed on her veg
And she played with her curls.
Why do you want to be Dad?
I replied.
Girls can do everything boys can,
I lied.
Then she looked up at me,
With a grin ear to ear,
No they can’t,
Her retort,
Because boys are strange here…
Looking down at her pants,
And then back up at me,
She declared:
It’s not fair I can’t stand when I wee,
So I want to be Dad,
And I want my own willy
Because the bits girls have are dainty and silly.
Before I had kids,
I had just no idea
That Sunday tea talk
Could have ended up here.

    Deja vu. I had the same conversation with my daughter (over 25yrs ago). She was taunted by her brother, that she couldn’t do what he does (stand & pee). Then she showed him she could. Lol
