The things she ponders

Last night as Lydia and I were snuggling in bed, she asked, "Mom, why do boys sometimes kiss girls and the girls don't like it and they cry?" I was astonished and began (quickly) pondering how to answer my almost four year old.
Me: "Who told you that boys kiss girls and make them cry?"
L: "Eden." (yeah right, she's also four)
Me: "I don't think so. Who said this?"
L: hemming and hawing, then finally .... "You know, Mom. Georgy Porgy, pudding and pie, kissed the girls and made them cry...."

This girl makes us laugh!

How funny! So what was your answer?

Well, I can see that would have you wondering...I'm sure it was a relief that they idea only came from Georgie Porgie. :) I'm anxious to hear your answer too!

I was certainly able to avoid any in-depth answer when I realized she had her "facts" from a nursery rhyme! I think I just told her that it was a silly story and it was pretend.
