Differences between girls and boys

It's turned out that pretty much all of our friends only have female children. There are boys which my girls play with but they are far in the minority.

Yesterday Trelise noticed that Morimoto is a boy and she said "Mummy Morimoto is a boy and I can tell because I can see his dangly thing"

I admit that I've neglected the whole sex education thing. It hasn't really come up but we have had discussions on what the correct word is. So seizing the opportunity to again explain the differences between girls and boys I said "Trelise do you know what that's called?"

"No" she answered

"Well it's called a penis, can you say penis?"

She repeats and I follow on with "What's your bottom called?"

The answer?

"Duh, Normal" (in a rolling her eyes kind of way - she's getting a bit sassy of late!)

Trelise has the right attitude! My son, who I think is about her age, calls the female anatomy "China" and I have yet to correct him.

Haha. We have silly names for our parts :) I was wondering when you introduce the 'real' names.

Normal. LOL! I love that!!! I can't bear to have my kids saying penis and vagina all day long, so we call them pee pee and woo woo. lol!! And when the girls have diaper rash, it's a boo boo on the woo woo. ;)
