Re: What to call private parts?

Are you ready for this one?

When dd#1 was about 3, she started calling my dh's penis............ a bench. We were like, what? She said bench. Too funny cuz my husband will say, come on babe and sit on the bench to me.

She's outgrown that and knows that boys have penises and girls have vaginas. But in the tub, she calls her rear end the butt and her front end the bumm.

dd#2 used to say bulba which has evolved to bulb. She is fascinated by her "bulb" lol The other day she also decided that she is a boy, because she has a boy penis. She came in to my room and said, mama i have a boy penis. i said no you don't. she said yes i do, it's a little one, see? and proceded to show me her "boy penis" she is now delighted to tell eveyrone she has a little boy penis growing in her "pagina"

To the person who commented on the wohle naked neighbor thing...when my kids were figuring out the whole boy/girl thing, they used to walk up to atrangers at the campground pool and say, you're a boy so you have a penis right? and your mom has a vagina cuz she's a girl...talk about a traveling anatomy lesson

I in no way think my children will go through life without ever learning what the real names are. But I *personally* see NO need to tell them now. They can get the same point across with "privates" and "Butt".

Re: What to call private parts?

DD has known the technical names since aobut 18 months. She knows Penis, Vagina, and Vulva. The we call our butt our bottom. She knows breasts and what they are for ect....
I have issues with not using the right names for our bodies, so we have just always been very open with her aobut the body.

Re: What to call private parts?

i say penis and testicles to my son, he says peNis and ess but only says ess if someone else did, i dont think he gets what i mean, but he gets penis pretty good!
my gfs kids say balls and nuts and thomas does if theyre suddenly hurt, and i hate that, ive been argueing with him about that for years...
to my son- yep, daddys got a penis and testicles too, but no, youre not supposed to stomp on them, or help pull yourself on the couch with them, its not funny to hurt daddy!

h pokes at me sometimes and gives me this weird look, i just tell him i dont have a penis cause im a girl, and he just looks at me like ive lost it lol
