The Difference Between Boys and Girls

Some of you read this on Facebook the other day.  For those who didn't, this was our conversation at the dinner table the other night.

Little Miss:  Daddy, you're a boy.  Mommy and me are Girls. 

We both nod at this.

Husband:  What's the difference between boys and girls?

Little Miss:  I don't know.  Tell me, Daddy.

Husband looks at me.

Me:  Tell her, Daddy. 

Husband:  Boys have a penis, and girls have a vagina.

This has been our answer to this recurring question.  At this stage, she seems to accept that answer without any follow-up questions.  So, she thinks about this information and then says:

Little Miss:  Boys are penises...

I laughed and couldn't disagree, but I did set her straight.  I mean, come on, sometimes, boys are penises.  She is a wise one.
