…I couldn’t resist.
Halia’s got a pretty decent vocabulary considering her 20 months. A good portion of her vocabulary naturally consists of body parts, and she gets a lot of joy out of identifying them. Some body parts can really only be observed and explored when going diaper-free, of course, and Halia makes the most of being bare-bummed.
Tonight as I was diapering her for bedtime she was grabbing her bottom and shouting out “bum!” with glee.
“Yes, bum,” I agreed, fiddling with diaper tabs. The next logical thing was for her to put her hands on her vulva, which she did. “And what’s that called, Halia?” I asked her, though I know she knows the word very well.
Which is why I was rather surprised when she answered instead, “Meow!”
(Well. I guess that works, too.)
