Hubby goes in tomorrow for the big snip...aka his vasectomy. Try explaining that to your children. I started with, "We are done having babies so Daddy is having a surgery that makes it so we don't have any more babies."
ET: But I want a brother.
(Ain't gonna happen.)
Thumbelina: Surgery? Like they're going to cut him?
(It ain't called the big snip for nothing!)
Munchkin: What's surgery?
Then, tonight, we had whispered conversations about where exactly they are going to cut him.
ET: Where are the tubes they are going to cut?
Me: On his boy parts.
Thumbelina: (whispered) on his butt or his pe*nis?
Me: Everyone has a butt so that's not a boy part.
Consider this your fair warning if my children come and play at your house.
