The other day my neighbor came over to give me some flowers from her garden...as I am talking to her, M is sitting behind me on the deck. I look back for a second at her, and she has both hands up her dress in her diaper. I was horrified, but a little relived when my neighbor said both he daughters used to do it too. She told me I just have to ignore it. So I have been trying to ignore it, but then she watched most of Toy Story 3 leaning against the couch with one hand down her pants.
It isn't all the time, but it is getting more and more frequent. I know she is just curious and just checking things out, which is totally cool with me, but when it happens in public I am totally embarrassed. Should I be doing something about it? And if yes, what?
And all of this exploring has lead me to another conundrum...what do we call her private parts? Seems like such a silly question to be posing, but I am curious as to what everyone is telling their kids to call their "parts"?
When I was little we had these horrific pig-Danish terms (as in my mom told me it was Danish, which is what my Grandmother is, but I later found out it was just made up words) for man and lady-lands. I absolutely refuse to use them with M, so I am trying to come up with new words...Hoo Ha? Pajengo? Kooka? Do I go with the technical va-jayjay?
What are your words for private parts??
