Remember how we talked about cuss words the other day? Well, can we keep the conversation going and talk about other awkward words that have been present in Little Dude's vernacular, please?
What about the word WORM?
And no, he's not referring to the slimy critters nestled in the damp soil. He's talking about the one and only part on his body that resembles the same tube-like shape.
That's right. He calls his penis "worm"; "his worm" to be precise.
At first, when he was a littler dude, I thought it was sort of cute and chuckled whenever he said it. Not so much anymore, though. I mean, he's in school now. Do I really want him referring to his private area as such? I don't really think so and I'm pretty sure when I read his 4 year old check up sheet given to me by the pediatrician, it said to refer to all body parts as exactly what they are. But let's be honest... doesn't the term "penis" feel a bit strong coming from the mouth of a pre-schooler?
Calling all moms OR anyone with an opinion!
How do you approach private part terms with your kids, especially little boys? Is it really that big of a deal? Thoughts and suggestions welcome!
