I know this is a family blog, but…

20 Jul

…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.)

    Oh, I love it! She’s just as logic as children are before grown-ups have managed to take it out of them…

    Oh MY! How the heck did she make that connection. Pure chance or did she catch “adult-speak” :-S

      I’m pretty sure it was just chance; she HAD been wearing a t-shirt with a cat on it all day. 🙂

    That made me laugh. Luckily not loud enough that I’d have to explain it to co-workers. 🙂

    I told this story to a few moms and one pregnant friend over dinner on Friday. Few stories are funnier when I tell them than they are in my head but this one was way funnier when I heard myself say it. Everyone laughed.
