More Conversations with Maximus

So perhaps I shouldn't post this, but I just have to. Hopefully Maximus will forgive me when he's 13 and this is still floating around the Blogosphere.

[Maximus building robots out of his Mega Bloks.]

Maximus: This robot's name is "Teener."
Me: Oh, that's an interesting name. Which robots are nice robots?
Maximus: This yellow robot is a nice robot.
Me: Which robots are big boys and go pee-pee in the potty?
Maximus the monologuer: These robots aren't boys, they're just robots. They don't go pee-pee in the potty. They got no potties. They got no bottoms. They got no peanuts.

So much for teaching correct vocabulary for anatomical parts. "Peanuts" it is.
