What did you call your "private parts" when you were little?
My mom always referred to it as "tulip" so I'm pretty sure I did, too, as a kid. It's really embarrassing & I've never heard anyone else refer to it as that in my entire life.
My mom called it a giggy...sounds so funny now!
We are calling my DS's a pee-pee.
I will never forget the first time I realized that what we called it (a poe poe) was NOT what it was supposed to be called. I was at the doctors and had a bladder or kidney infection and my vagina hurt but I just couldn't/wouldn't talk to the doctor about it because I didn't want to use the wrong words and didn't know the right one.
My daughter knows she has a vagina! Incidentally she also knows Daddy and brother have penises.
I called it my private area. It encompassed my butt too. My mom had a little call and response song she'd teach me while I bathed (I was maybe 4) "Private areas.......DON'T TOUCH!". I had a friend who called it a tutu, but that made no sense to me.
DS started off immediately calling his parts a PENIS, nice and loud. DH got all embarrassed and told me not to encourage it. I asked him what else he'd want him to call it. Speechless.
Today, DS realized that there was something else down there so he announced "Mommy, this is my penis and my.........BENIS". We'll talk about testicles tomorrow.
