So DD #1 has been old enough for a while now to name body parts. She has seen mommy and daddy in their birthday suits, and obviously is very aware of her own body.
I know some folks are all about calling things what they are, but I just don't want to hear the word "vagina" coming out of her mouth. So we have a few words we use:
The rear end is the bumper. My grandmother used to say bumper - actually, she was from Long Island so it came out more like "bumpah" - which is how we say it. I think butt sounds a little too - I don't know. DH says bumper or bottom. She knows poopie comes from her bumper or bottom.
Her "parts" are her bits and bobs. Don't even ask me how the heck we got there. I think DH started calling it her bits and bobs when he bathed her and it just stuck. She knows pee pee come out of her bits and bobs.
She sees me nursing DD #2 and pumping, so she's very familiar with my bubbies. Or boobies. (will the Nest block that out?) We call my breasts both boobies and bubbies. Or breasts. She understands all those words.
My question is, what do we call the male part? A lot of people call it the "pee pee" but pee pee in our house is what we do in the potty. (well, she doesn't do it in the potty yet, but that's a while 'nother post). DH doesn't make a habit of walking around the house naked, but she's certainly seen it (and I think that's fine)... just not sure what to call it.
I would ask on the national boards but I've seen too many "just call it what it is!" posts where people get flamed for calling body parts cutsey names. I don't consider us cutesy people, I'm just not ready for the official terms yet - so sue me.
