My sister-in-law, her 2 kids, and her husband are staying with my family until they get in their house. They moved here last week which is beyond cool. It should only be a few more days until they move. As hard as it is to have 4 people add to 5 already in my house, its been a blast. My sister-in-law and I stay up until the wee morning hours laughing and talking. My brother-in-law and husband are outside with the kids playing like children themselves and my kids and nieces are having the time of their life.
My sister in law has 2 little girls and I have 2 boys and one girl.
Last night my sons were getting out of the shower when my niece had to go potty. She, for some reason, didn't care that there were 2 other bathrooms, she had to go into the one my boys were in. She is going to be 3 and isn't quite fully potty trained so she couldn't hold it. She walked in and sat on the toilet as my sons were wrapped in their towel and looked at her like she was crazy for busting in on them.
When we were going to the rooms to change into jammies, my son's towel flew open accidentally when he was trying to adjust it because he was freezing. I guess my niece caught a glimpse of the difference between boys and girls and later in the night, as my sister and I sat shoving our face with melted chocolate and strawberries she said, "Did you know MY tigley fell off?" My sister and I tried to stop laughing long enough to have to explain what she saw and why she didnt have one, but we were falling short.
In my house we have little names for our private parts. "Tigley" being the boy part, obviously.
My brother-in-law who was in the living room with my husband overheard and said, "You can't give it a more manly name then Tigley? Please tell me you're joking." It made me think, are we the only ones that do this?
Do you have nicknames for private parts for your children? How did you explain the difference between boy and girl parts to your kids?
