My 3 year old dd took a bath with her 3 year old friend/cousin that's a boy. I was babysitting him yesterday and was ready for them to wind down and get ready for bed. I was bathing my dd and asked him if he was ready for his bath; he said yes and stripped down, went to the potty and urinated, he then jumped in and I didn't think anything of it at the time. They bathed, played, laughed, and were in the tub for no more than 10 to 15 minutes. Neither of them said any words about the other's genitalia. That night, at home, after dd is in bed; she called me into her room and asked me why she didn't have what he had (penis), I was surprised and couldn't think of what to say so I didn't really say much, I just listened to her describe what she saw and how she felt about it. I did tell her boys have a penis and girls have a vagina. I've told her that before that night. I'm not sure if I should go to her today and say anything else.

Leave it alone now. Unless she asks, you gave her enough information, which is totally age appropriate.
