And nnooowww ... it's WTF Friday!!!!!


Today's episode of WTF Friday is brought to you courtesy of Syd the Kid, she's the sweetest little thing you could ever lay eyes on. She's very polite, a little on the shy side, extremely smart and totally hilarious, which is why when she said the word "penis" it shocked the bejesus outta me!!!!


Now I know all you parents out there who are taking the whole raising kids thing seriously are thinking "come on Ali, where have you been? this is the 21st Century and we no longer use words like ding dong, pee pee and willie! you need to teach your kids the correct anatomical words so that they are fine with them when they grow up". Well, sorry to bust your bubble, but I still call them wieners, junk and dingle dangles, and I just can't bring myself to teach the correct words to my kids...when they grow up do you honestly think they'll be saying penis???? I don't and it's never bothered me so why should they??? it's just such a funny word and to hear it from the Sydster was a real wtf moment.



Apparently it was necessary to ascertain the gender of the ponies they were playing with last night and she told her 'lil sis, "this one is a boy, you know how I can tell? he has a penis!". That's when my ears did the cartoon thing where they fly off the side of my head and then snap back into place with the sound of an air horn!!!!! A what????? I asked little Miss Biology where she'd heard that word and she replies "What???? that's what it's called!". OK, so I'm in my place!!



It's still ringing in my ears... that little innocent voice of hers, the high pitched, giggly, girlie voice and that word!!!!! I think the reason I shy away from it is because its the word they use in those hideous sex ed videos they showed us in school in the early eighties and therefore it's not just a body part but a tool to make babies with and it's related to words like flaccid and erect!!! Eeewww...... and another thing... girls are the majority in my house, we don't need to use words like that 'cos we don't talk about Daddy's goings on and there are no brothers who need to know what their deal is really called.



So that concludes wtf Friday... I am off to douche my ears and try to recover from the shock!

My 3 year old niece and 5 year old nephew have conversations like this at times, only the last time they had one, they went through every member of the entire family, like this: "Aunt Gidget has a vagina, Uncle Grouper has a penis." When I heard this, I freaked out. I am NOT mature enough for conversations like that with wee babes. I'm just NOT. The only thing worse that I've seen was when my 3 year old nephew "discovered himself" in my living room as was at "full attention." I had a turtleneck on, thank goodness, because I shoved my head down into it and turned the brightest shade of red.

Douche your ears! Haha!

My mother said something offcolor (don't remember what anymore) when I was in high school and I said "Mom! My virgin ears!" to which she replied "Well I sure hope no one's ever stuck a penis in your ear". I could have completely died! Right there.

Luckily my boys think that "nuts" is a funnier word so I'm mostly spared.

Looking on the bright side, at least Syd didn't have commentary on the nature of horse penises!

McGillicutty said...

LOL... now Nancy please!!!! That would have been the very end!!!!

Sara, that's hilarious when your mother is the one saying shocking things!

Open Heart, sorry about that, clean it up before Blog Camp.

Fidget, that's hilarious and I have a similar story about Ashley discovering a tiny little part of her body and asking me what it's called and what it's for!!!!! I hid in the laundry room.

I can think of worse words she could have use to describe the horse's "man" parts, but they are used by the kids at the really rough school.

When my now 13-yr-old was small enough to ride on his dad's shoulders (2 and a half maybe?), we were in line at the grocery store. In a rather loud but also very worried voice, he said, "You don't have a penis, Momma?" The checker, the people in front of us in line, the people behind us, all of them were cracking up!

Jeannette said...

Oh, how I missed reading your posts.
I´m laughing so loud now about the post and the comments that the hubby is seriously worried that I lost my mind.
