We were picnicking this weekend and watched a gaggle of grade school-age girls stop playing and run - literally! - to watch a mom change a little boy. The mother must have known the chaos that would ensue, because she called out, "Hey Annette! Do you want to help change Tommy's diaper?"
I'm sure all this was innocent enough, but it's made me wonder: Did any of you ladies use changing times to learn how boys were made?
I know there's a modesty double-standard at work here, but I imagine these girls couldn't have cared less had the baby been another girl. The fact that the baby was a boy made them stop everything and run. I was there - I saw it and heard their conversation on the point.
I don't have children, and I'd like to know if this is at all common or a frequent occurrence. Did any of you female ADISCers learn about boys firsthand while you were changing diapers? If not, is there some other attraction (forgive the term, but I cannot think of another) for girls who are given the opportunity to change a baby boy?
