A few days ago a friend of mine mentioned that her daughter said something about her “pocketbook”. Seeing that it didn’t fit the context of the conversation I had to ask “pocketbook? What did that have to do with a purse?” I was quickly informed that a “pocketbook” is another word for *whispers* a specific lady part.
Huh? Never heard of that term. Then the conversation came up regarding what will I teach Lil Mama to call “it.” Ummmm a vagina. That’s what it is, isn’t it. Coming up I was taught to call it a Poo-Poo. Nope, I don’t like that word either, anything referring to that region that starts with a P gets a thumbs down in MY book.
So I bring this to you my extended family. Have you taught your children to refer to these areas by the correct anatomical names, or do you care to share more funny nicknames. I am confused, I need to know. Is it wrong for a 2 year old to say vagina, cause I’ve heard one say coochie and I didn’t think it was cute at all.
Time to show your age. Who can tell me what movie this line came from:
Boys have a penis and girls have vaginas
