Re: What about boobs?
I call them boobs if they come up in a casual conversation but if my dh refers to them in front of my 8 year old he is instructed by me to say breasts. Kind of a respect thing. This has only come up when the 8 year old asked why "boobs" are all different sizes. Dh corrected him by saying, "all breasts are different just like all noses and all other bodies are different" he emphasized the word breast to imply that was the better word choice. I don't want my 8 year old to talk about a girls "boobs". It just sounds too.......I don't know. My neighbor has breast cancer and I heard Ian saying something about boob cancer and it freaked me out. I realized he needs to hear the word breast more!
