Welcome to Mommy (and Daddy) Lingo!

Hi and thanks for visiting this site. As a mother of 3 I've said some pretty odd stuff over these past 10 years and thought it would be fun to write a bunch of them down.

And now, with the encouragement of my brother, I'd like to share some of these unconventional, yet practical, phrases. Enjoy!

"You don't have a wiener."

**Disclaimer - The following is a quick anatomy lesson between my 5 year old daughter and myself and may be a bit awkward. Read at your own discretion.**

"Girls don't have wieners."
"Well then what do you call it? My pee pee?"
"Yep, that works."
"But doesn't it have another name?"
"Uh, you can just say your private."
"I know about that one, but there isn't another name for it if you're a girl? I mean, boys can say pee pee, penis, wiener, private...what else?"
"That's good enough. You know what, just don't worry about it."
"But why do boys have so many names for it?"
"I don't really know. But anyway, are you ready to get your bathing suit on?"
"Oh, sure!"


  1. Why not just tell her the name? She knows the word penis already...

  2. Good point! I actually did a while back and she thought it was the funniest name so she'd say it at random times and laugh. I guess I should reintroduce it.
