Dialog, Part 12

Miss-Miss: Mama, I have vul-va!

Me: Yes! You do!

Miss-Miss: And Bubba has a... a pe-nis!

Me: You're right!

Miss-Miss: And J-man has a pe-nis, too! And Papa has pe-nis!

Me: What does Mama have? What do I have?

Miss-Miss: You have a vul-va! Jus' like me!

Me: Good, Miss-Miss! You're right!

Miss-Miss: And Weagan has a pe-nis! And 'Livia has a vul-va!

Me: You're right! Wondering if Reagan's and Olivia's moms are having this same conversation about my kids' private parts, and glad to finally know the names, and sexual orientations, of the kids at the twins' school.

Has Miss-Miss educated them yet? If so, I'm sure they are!

Bucky said...

At least your teaching them proper names instead of using terms like Tallywhacker and Va-jay-jay.... UGH.

Avitable said...

I didn't know what a penis was called until I was 24.

Expat No. 3699 said...

It's better you teach them the correct names, than other kids.

My nephew informed me that girl have 'fine china'

Gypsy said...

I taught my friends the word "hymen." 'Course, I was 12 at the time, but still.

I think it's easier to deal with when you have at least one of each sex. My kids have always taken baths together and the whole penis and vagina thing is no weirder for them to say than elbow and knee. They're very matter of fact about it.

My parents had 2 girls and weren't forced to discuss pieces parts, so they just avoided the topic.

Molly's Mom said...

Yeah...we haven't educated mine on that quite yet. I probably should, since she freaked out one morning (sitting so ladylike on the floor whilst putting her undies on) and said "I have a stem!!!"

Poor kid. It's so much easier to laugh than explain.

Coal Miner's Granddaughter said...

Penny - Oh, I'm waiting for the e-mail from her teacher. I'm sure that'll be fun!

Bucky - Yeah, can't stand that. Although Ty once referred to Bubba's penis as "rhubarb." I was never the same after that.

Avitable - THIS? Is why you take pictures of it for your blog! ARGH!

Employee No. 3699 - I completely agree.

Metal Mom - HA! Why, yes. Yes we do!

Gypsy - Hee hee! This is why I love you, hon!

MommyCosm - It is easier. It's unavoidable. And why be all secretive? That's one of the reasons why I have sex hang-ups, because my parents didn't talk about it!

Molly's Mom - A stem! I'm crying with laughter! That's awesome!

Violet the Verbose said...

Hee hee heeeeeeeee! I love kids. Our girls very matter-of-factly talk to me about their labia. It's really good for them to know the right terminology early, and so easy to teach it as a matter of fact when they're young. Because it IS just a matter of fact.

Donna said...

I prefer pecker and labia ... much better than what I was taught - (in a low-toned, secretive/dirty whisper) privates. I always hated that. Pecker and labia actually sounds like fun!
