This is random, but I need to decide what we are going to call "boy parts". There are a lot of options out there and I want to pick the right term.
Now, I could just go with "penis" and make things simple. I'm not opposed to that, but again, I want to weigh all my options.
With Lydia, I didn't have the stomach to use the v-word. The v-word is possibly the grossest word in the English language, I don't care what the vagina monologues say. Some people insist that you need to use the technical terms for body parts. While that's fine, I was permanently scarred by a story my friend Lisa told me about her 3 year old niece. She was taught the technical term for lady parts. While shopping with her mother at a busy supermarket, her pants became wedged in an uncomfortable area she started screaming at the top of her lungs, "My VAGINA!!!!"
We went with the term "pp place".
Now I need a term for the boy parts. I've heard some interesting ones. "Little Peter", "Pinket", Wee-Wee. Of course, no one chose a more embarrassing name than my parents. Tallywhacker. I kid you not. Tallywhacker. (I started laughing hysterically just typing that.) They must have been hell-bent on embarrassing their elementary age children. They also choose to call poop "ToeToe".
So tell me. What do you call the "private parts" with your children? And while we are discussing things, any interesting "potty" names? My brother in law's parents called poop "messy". Gross.
