Gender Confusion

I just noticed that Big was grabbing himself like he needed to go pee.

Me: "Hey, Big, let's take you pee."

Big: "Violet. My name is Violet."

Me: "Oh, yeah. Sorry, Violet. Let's take you pee."

Big: "Okay." (and then, as we're walking to the bathroom) "..and Ginger is 'Nikki', you are 'Colette' and Daddy is 'Paulina'."

Me: "He's the cutest 'Paulina' I've ever seen."

Big: "She."

Me: "What?"

Big: "SHE is the cutest 'Paulina' you've ever seen."

Me: "Oh. Yeah. My bad."

Over the past week or so Big has been Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Violet, Angelina Johnson the Quidditch player, Raja Bell, Joe the Construction Worker and Sarah. Big stays in character better than anyone I know-- he even wants to pee sitting down when he's pretending to be a girl (it's important to immerse yourself in the character to really pull it off, don't you know), and he can switch back and forth without missing a beat.  

Things can get a bit confusing around here. I have a hard enough time remembering the kids' real names! My poor, poor brain.
