OK, so I am laying in bed this morning with my 6 year old daughter and we are talking about surgery. (Isn't that what you talk to your kids about at 8am? No? Oh, well, we evidently do.) So she says if she gets cut on by a Dr. she's going to (to quote her) "DIEEEEEEEE!"
Now, no one is getting surgery, we're just talking about it because she has a ganglion cyst on her wrist that we have the option of getting removed if we want to. We don't.
I tell her about my C-section and if I didn't have the surgery then I wouldn't have her or her brother. Then I think, well, this is a good opener to talk about where MOST babies come from. We seem to skip right over those things. (I am my mother's child) In our family we call it a bottom. The whole thing, just a bottom. Or if we are getting scientific, we call it "girl parts."
So I take the plunge and ask her if she wants to know the REAL name for her girl parts. She puts her hands over her ears and starts giggling. So I tell her it's a really funny name. (At this time, I'm even embarrassed, I just am... amazing I even had kids of my own because I am squeamish about these things.) So I tell her, I'll say it & then we can giggle about how funny it is together.
Me: Vagina.... heheheheheh, hahahaha, hohohohohohh
Her: Va-Nina? Giggle giggle giggle
Me: No babe, Vagina. giggle giggle
Her: Va-China? giggle giggle.
Me: BAAAA HAAAAA HAAAAAA
Her: Like, Made in China?
Me: Exactly, your girl parts where made in China.
Her: OK, well, let's get up and get breakfast.
