Name That Body Part

I had the four Merchant grandkids spend the night last Friday.We haven’t had much time together because we have all been sick.Just when you think we would have the creeping crud days behind us the sitting in front of the toilet flu would strike.I think we just passed it back and forth over and over.Finally on Friday we had an all clear so I called to see if we could have a sleep over.I thought I would give Brooke and Mike a surprise and take all four.When I gave Brooke the news I heard ———WOOOOOOO HOOOOOO.

Hungarian Work Horse picked up the kids after supper and they sounded like a herd of buffalo when they came in the back door.They acted like we hadn’t seen each other in a year.I love that feeling of excitement that kids have.I was doing some banking on line when they got here so up to the computer room came Alexis.She wanted to read some of this blog and so I brought it up.Little did I know that it would bring me something I could embarrass my granddaughters  with when they get older.

IMG_0518She is nine now and the sweetest little girl you ever met.She loves to read about herself and her siblings on the blog and was doing that when Miss P came up and was standing beside her.

I thought I miss heard her when she said,”Peyton move over I can feel your penis on my leg.”

IMG_0079This is Peyton and I was the third person to hold her after she was born. I have changed many of her diapers when she was a baby and they were all penis free as far as I can remember.I just let it go thinking that she must have said something else.Then……

“Peyton you are making me uncomfortable I can still feel your penis on me now BACK AWAY.”

OK that was it.I knew then I had to say something.I usually try to keep away from conversations like this with the grandkids because they have wonderful parents that teach them what they need to know but I knew something was really wrong here.

“Alexis what are you talking about,Peyton does not have a penis.”

Then Peyton starts telling me names of her body parts that I never heard of.I am wondering why we can’t use “private parts” like we always have in the past.

Alexis then pipes up with,”Oh,that’s right girls have a ver ginny, Nana.”

I know now I am having a talk with their mother because this is ridiculous.

The next time I was at Brooke’s I brought up that Alexis used the word penis for Peyton’s body part and Brooke started to laugh.She told me they had to have a conversation because one day the girls were playing and one of them told her that the other one accidentally hit her in the nuts.She must have told them the proper anatomy names of boy and girl body parts and they not only got mixed up but they forgot some of the proper names.

I love this little snippet of innocence in my little ladies even if they don’t sound like ladies at times when they speak.They are growing up on me that is for sure,but it is so wonderful to be able to watch them learn things even if it is the name of your body part.I just hope their mother gets that ver ginny thing straightened out!

God bless my Brooke and her wisdom.

  1. OMG this is too funny! And look at me – I finally found a way to follow your blog! Now I get to read your sweet and wonderful posts when they are brand spanky new.
    Loved this, Liz.

    • I know my little ladies were really confused.I am thinking they must have heard some boys messing around somewhere with the nuts thing.Who knows!I am glad that Brooke set them straight with what was appropriate and what wasn’t.

    • We have no idea where the girls picked up that language.They didn’t even know it was wrong.Brooke has a lot of work in front of her but she is up for the job.She teaches kindergarten and most things don’t surprise her anymore.Talk about out of the mouths of babes!

  2. Oh, I had a good laugh! I had to stop and re-read what you typed at first. And then when I went on, it just got better and better….ver-ginny. And then the comments with “west ver-ginny, and remembering the “drink of choice”….oh, I needed that today! 🙂

    • So happy you had a good laugh.I was almost afraid to type it because I didn’t want to offend anyone or have them thinking my sweet girls were hooligans!.Blessings Denise and have a good day.
