I've been trying to use and teach the appropriate terms for my kid's anatomy lately. The days of "wee wees" and "front bottoms" are over. They need to know what things are called and not be afraid to use the correct terminology.
Sadie has it down pat- although she giggles like a school girl every time she says vagina. Noah, on the other hand, just can't for the life of him remember what his parts are called. It seems like no matter how much we talk to him about it, we just can't drill the word "penis" into his brain.
Last night, the hubby and I were completing the bed time rituals- the pj's, brushing the teeth, the cuddles. Noah and I were going over body parts. Our conversation went a little something like this:
Me: That is your penis.
Me: What is it called?
Noah: I can't remember.
Me: It's your penis. Now- what is it called?
Noah: Ummm.... Your highness?
The hubster and I almost died from laughing so hard. Love that boy and all the comedy he brings into our home!
