How Not To Talk To Your Five-Year-Old About Brains

 

Mmmm, braaaaiiiinssss

Mmmm, braaaaiiiinssss

Munchkin is obsessed with crawfish. He's never had one, but since being told you eat them by “sucking their brains out,” he asks for them All. The. Time. This morning, he asked, “Mom? When you suck the crawfish brains, do you have two brains, or do you just switch brains with them?”

(Side note: people should not converse with five-year-olds while driving.)

We had a watered-down discussion of the principles of digestion. Munchkin's a smart kid, so he caught on quick. Then he summarized his new crawfish stance for me. “Mommy! I want to poop brains!”

Boys. 🙂
