This summer, I took the kids to the zoo. The walrus was definitely the highlight of the trip. This walrus is some kind of big. And he is a major lover. Down in the observation area, he would swim right up to the glass and love all over the kids. He was showing off and floating cheek to cheek with the kids through the glass.
And then? I noticed just how much of a lover he actually was.
Holy huge walrus penis!
As I was trying desperately to ignore it, despite the giggles from the other adults around, I heard my daughter (loudly) exclaim,
"Woah! Look at that big giant peepee!"
My son followed with an even louder,
"WOW! His peepee is even bigger than daddy's...and daddy's got a pretty big peepee!"
Everyone within a 10 foot radius heard their rather enlightening conversation and burst into laughter.
Even later, when we stopped for an early dinner, the kids could not quit talking about the giant peepee.
Fast forward a few months...
Last week, Cole and I were working on a drawing for part of his homework. We were supposed to be drawing a whale. The Little Miss decided to draw a whale of her own. After seeing it, I said, "Baby! That's so good! It looks just like a walrus!"
Her eyes lit up.
A light bulb went on above her head.
She grabbed the crayon in her grubby, little hand and ran off into the other room. A few seconds later, she came screaming back in, "Ta da! His big giant peepee!"
I am dreading W week in preschool.
