Hannah and Ethan are running around naked while the bath is running. Hannah points to Ethan's manhood and says "Don't you point that thing at me."

I think her parents are to blame.

Hannah asks me about one of the rubber ducks in the bath.

"Mummy, is this a tufted duck?"

I think her ornithologist Grandma has had an influence.

When I confirm it is a tufted duck she says "But it's yellow."

"It's a pretend duck Hannah, not a real one."

Undeterred she asks "Is it a female?"

I'm sure I didn't know the word female until I was at least eight years old.
