Nope. Not Nostrils.

While driving back from my Grandma's house with my parents last Sunday, Big pup (age 6) and I (age...24, ahem) had a strange but necessary conversation.


Big pup: What are those things called? Nostrils?

Me: (Pointing to my nose) Yep. Those are nostrils.

Big pup: No. Those round things under my pee pee.

Me: Oh! Those are testicles.

Big pup: Teh..tes...What is it again?

Me: Testicles.

Big pup: Oh, yeah. I can never get that right.
Big pup: But wh--
Me: Hey, look out the window! Are those cows?

  17. LOL! I still won't tell Charlie what a girl's nether regions are called. He's seven, and I can just see him getting suspended for yelling out "Vagina!" So we call it the Humberfloob. :)

    But I did tell him about his testicles, and he wasn't terribly impressed.

  19. I confused my children so much that they call hardened mucous "tiny nostrils." Gross, I know.

    The other? Well, they just call them the privacy balls.

    It's their own coinage.

  20. Oh, these boys! Mine at 4 is always asking questions about his privates. And talking about it and I want to run and hide. Or laugh out loud. But I have to be serious and not make a big deal out of it.

    So funny! Thanks for sharing. I know I am not alone now.
