I always swore I wouldn't be the type of parent who dumbed down or sugar-coated things for my kids. I mean, there is such a thing as discussing certain topics on an age-appropriate level, but you're never going to hear me utter anything in the realm of "Goldfish/Doggy/Toy, etc. Heaven", and definitely no storks or angels
A couple of years ago Mina got the whole 'girls have a vagina/boys have a penis' spiel.
I'm glad she knows the right words and isn't afraid to use them. Also, sometimes when we're really lucky, it provides a good amount of comedy.
The other night the girls were getting out of the tub when Mina decided we were having a party.
"It's a farty party, Mama!"
My husband and I tried to hide our admittedly immature giggling.
"It's a farty party, farty party, farty party! It's a BUTT party!"
This sent us into all out laughter, which only egged her on more.
"Vagina! Vagina! Penis party, penis party, PEEEEE-NIS!"
Maybe it was the beer I had with dinner, but I was cackling at this point.
Jim joked with her, "I LOVE peanuts!"
"No Daddy! PEE-nis."
"Yeah, peanuts! I think peanuts are great!"
Mina got really angry at this point which only made me laugh harder.
"Don't you know what a penis is, Daddy?! You have a penis!"
After Jim took Audrey out of the bathroom and into her room, Mina sat down next to me looking truly concerned.
"Mama, doesn't he know? You really need to have a talk with Daddy about his penis."
