What do your kids call their genitals?

My husband and I were discussing this. I'm pregnant with our first, a boy, and I told him that he can choose what to tell him it's called, lol....I really don't KNOW what a little kid should call their private parts, other than the actual technical names, which always sound so funny to me when a little kids uses them. What do your kids call theirs? Did you teach them that or did it just come up on it's own?

I remember my little brother called his a "worm" when he was little, because..well, it looked like a worm, haha. :)

  • I have taught my kids the proper name from day one, with hilarious results! My daughter called her vagina, "Pajama" and my son would say, 'Peanut" instead of penis.

  • My 8 yo calls them his "privates" as in "my brother kicked me in the privates! He went through a phase of calling them "nuts" but that doesn't sound right to me so I told him to stop!

  • My DD has a vagina and my DS has a penis. There is no reason not to call them by their technical names. Although, my DH calls our DSs penis a little bird. No clue why.

    My mom always called mine "privates" and that's what I'll probably refer to them as myself. It always re-enforced in my mind when I was really little that they were PRIVATE and if anyone ever touched them, it wasn't right. So, I guess it's good in that way too.

  • My two older boys know its their penis but they also call it their pee-pee or tallywhacker.

    Just depends on their moment or mood what they call it.

  • right now we call it his "pee pee" because he uses it to go pee pee. it will be called that until he's old enough to know we don't go around talking about "penises" in public.
