Anatomy Lesson

Anatomy Lesson
by Natalie Harber

I was teaching a musical-theater camp over the summer and one day I took two of the younger students to the bathroom. Both girls are 4 years old, and they left their stall doors open in order to engage me in conversation. One of the girls decided that she needed to educate me about the differences between boys and girls, so she told me all about how her daddy and brother have “wieners” and how they have to go to the bathroom standing up, but that girls have to sit down. She then told me how her baby brother will someday have a “wiener” too! It was very hard to control my laughter. I never thought that as a dance teacher I would hear something so “educational” and funny from a 4-year-old.
