How can you tell...

...if a baby is a boy or a girl when they are first born if they don't have any clothes on?
E wondered this aloud recently when the boys were born, thinking quite deeply about the question, because as she knew, they weren't born with dresses or pants on.

Ah ha! she told us she had found the answer: Boys have short eyelashes and girls have long ones.

Then, thinking how to delicately explain this to her, I told her I knew an even better way to tell: They go to the bathroom differently.

She just laughed and laughed at me and said in her patronizing voice: Mommy! babies don't GO to the bathroom!! You change their diaper!

oh yeah right.. how could i forget :-)
