Pee out of...

"Mom, do girls pee out of their vaginas?"

I answered with some anatomically correct explanation in which I mentioned the clitoris.

"What's a clitoris?"

I didn't like the way that sounded, so I told him not to say clitoris.  Then I back-peddled, as to not shame the clitoris.  Then I told him to play outside.

I always try to make those conversations not so weird.  But they always are.


  1. hahaha. Never shame the almighty clitoris! ;)

  2. Hahaha. I've always used proper anatomical terms with my kids. The other day, my three-year-old announced that since Daddy was bigger than her brothers, and his body and arms and legs and hands and feet were bigger, his penis must be bigger, too. Josh begged me to start using the generic "wee wee" for both genders after that. Not going to happen.

  3. Ah yes, "Go play outside". Always the correct answer in these situations.

    1. I felt like I turned into a 1950's prude parent and was like "run along son."
