This is AWESOME! (my mom calls it a petunia...kinda makes me snort when talking about planting petunias)

I'm all about the cooter. Kind of dirty, probably not what I'd use with a child, but, there you go.

seasons- the sad thing is she doesn't talk much. but she decides vulva is a good one.

chiro- i'm not going to be able to not feel dirty when i say petunias.

pa- it seems a "oo" sound and a "ee" sound are mandatory.

pugly- good to know you're "all about the cooter." i kind of feel silly using anatomically correct terminology, but you know what i'm going for. i just have to not show that i feel like a nincompoop saying it. i just try not to do the "yes violet, that's your eye. and that's your foot, and that's your (snicker...snort) vulva.

I think that's a noble thing. Well done.

WunEyedDog said...

You'd think that we could be adults about it, but I feel silly about using the correct terms, too. Seriously.

That's because the medical names for things sound horrifically harsh and sterile and frankly strike a bit of fear in me.
