"OK girls, finish washing up those vaginas before you get out of the tub so we can go meet Daddy at the rose garden for a picnic." B.L.E.C.K.
So unintentionally, everything is now referred to as "booty." Daddy has a booty. We all shake our booties. Girls have a "front booty" and a "back booty."
I recently found a reason to throw the word "penis" into a conversation with the girls. They were wondering how to tell if our new pet frog was a boy or girl. FYI...."According to my research" (Magic School Bus) only the males croak. But I decided it was time to reinforce the anatomically correct word that we don't have much use for in our estrogen filled home. So I asked them if they knew how to tell the difference between a male and female mammal. Ella responded with "girls have long eyelashes," and Josie thought that females all had long hair. I'm quite sure Addie knew the response I was looking for, but maybe refrained from answering for fear of saying a "bad" word (since we never use it). So needless to say I had to discuss the male anatomy.....using a term OTHER than "booty." I think that maybe an annual review will suffice, but what do you think? Am I doing serious damage to my sweet little girlies by not using anatomically correct terms? What do you all call "stuff"?
P.S. I started this post last week and interestingly enough, my girls were exposed to the anatomy of two proud little boys several times over this past weekend.
"Ooooh ooooh! I know the answer to this one!" the girl waved her hand eagerly in the air.
