I was watching that show "Bringing home baby" and there was a women on the tv giving birth. Well I was up cleaning so I didnt realize at the moment what was on the screen. Well my 7 yr old DD ask me " Mommy is the baby coming out of her butt"!! If you think thats bad wait till you hear what I said......"NO, babies come out of a women's WHO WHO", OMG I couldnt believe what I said. My 2 daughters call their girl parts a WHO WHO. I dont know where they got it from, but thats what they call it. Now mind you this is a convo that I needed time to prepare for. I had no time to think about what to say. She just layed that question on me so fast. She turned back to the tv as I turned the channel and hasnt said anything about it to me.. P.S. she sat there for like 5 minutes and looked like she was thinking really hard???? So how bad is what I said???? I feel horrid!!!! And should I say anything else to her about it or just let it go????
My daughter asked me how the baby came out just a couple months ago and she's only 4. Don't worry, just don't make it seem like a huge awful thing. Instead treat it like what it is. A simple fact of life. If she has more questions answer them honestly. I wasn't prepared either and wasn't sure how she'd react but I knew that she couldn't go her whole life thinking the baby comes out of the belly button. Lol!
Dd6 has known for a while now the basics of how a baby grows and comes out. She learned kinda early since she's the oldest of 4 (just talking about the ones I birthed). She and all of her sisters, minus the baby, also all know the proper names for their anatomy. I personally am uncomfortable with the word vagina, but I don't see any sense in ridiculous names for body parts. Jmho.
