...called your brother (her uncle) a "penis"?
Over Thanksgiving weekend, my beautiful, self proclaimed, girly *princess* called my brother a "penis"...yes, a penis!
Everyone tried not to laugh, but it obviously didn't work. I was mortified. My brother was not offended in the least, but I was absolutely mortified.
In this house, we use the correct terminology for things , so I guess she didn't see anything wrong with it...not sure why she did it.
We've talked about it and she says she knows it's not a word that we use around other people, but I'm afraid it's going to happen again.
I'm not looking for discipline advice really...just what your reaction would have been I guess.
What would you have done?

What ever you do don't laugh in front of her. i find the best way to handle these things are to ignore them then bring up something later about name calling and how you hurt people's feelings. They keep doing it if you laugh or have a shocked look. Right now a have a 2 year old who thought it would be okay to in the middle of my older sons school call his brother a "pain in the a$$" Granted he doesn't understand but the kids in the office laughed as well as some teachers so now he is walking around calling him a pain in the xxx all day long. At home we ignore him but the 3.5 year old should be understanding at this point that is a no no.
