How much do you tell a 4 year old when you can't keep a straight face?

When we brought Ryley home from the hospital Skyler was super concerned because her 'penis' was black - We quickly explained that Ryley doesn't have a penis, and that it was the umbilical cord - where baby Ryley had gotten food from mommy. Then just a couple of days ago Skyler was putting one of Ryley's diapers in the garbage for me, and asked if it was poo, or just pee. When I told him it was a dirty diaper he looked at me a shrugged his shoulders - 'of course it is mom, she has 2 bums...'

So cute, so innocent. We've always told our kids straight up. You have a penis and you have a vagina.
