Re: What to call private parts?

When Eliana was born, one of the boys was watching me change her diaper (Aidan, I think..).. He was looking at her with a puzzled look on his face and then looked at me with this "Ah-ha!" look in his eyes and said "That's where her penis is going to grow!" I laughed and said "No, she's a girl. She does not have a penis and will not grow one." My boys still don't really "get" girl parts... the other day Kieran asked me "Mommy, how do you go to the bathroom?"

Re: What to call private parts?

Want to laugh? A woman on another board I'm on posted this about her toddler. Her daddy was bathing her and she said something about girls having a vagina and boys having a penis and her Dad said "Yes, that's right." She said, "Well, its the same thing" and her Dad said, "No.... a girl has a vagina and a boy has a penis. They're very different things" and she thought about it and then said, "yeah....Well.. everybody has a butt."

bwahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa that totally cracked me up.

The correct medical term for the entire area, btw, is vulva.

BTW- we call ds's privates his "baby bits" when we don't use the medical names. But he's too young to care yet.
Yeah, that. Annoys me when women talk about their vagina, but you know they mean vulva. For example, a radio host was talking about getting the hair "on her vagina" removed by electrolicis. I was thinking, "Wow! She has a hairy vagina?".

Personally, I like va-jay-jay. Can't remember where I heard it first, but it cracks me up.

We call DS's stuff his 'parts' or his 'bits', or we call them by the proper name. My 12 year old stepson nearly has a stroke when we talk about penises and scrotums and anuses (if DS has a rash and DH and I are talking about where it is) so we have all had to start acting like juveniles and calling them his bits (penis and testicles) or his tookey (his bottom and anus).

We say yoni and lingum...honorable sanskrit words. Yoni means the whole area including the vagina, vulva, and womb. Lingum is the penis and testes.
