When a child goes through the developmental stage of potty training, there seems to be an accompanying fascination with their potty parts and an obsession with potty part/function words.

My child is not being sassy because he says "poo poo" and "pee pee". Well, he wasn't until you kept telling him not to say those words. Since they seem to irritate you, well, why not repeat them over and over and over?

And my child is not into b[e]stiality just because he asks every 5 seconds if that's the dog's "pee-nah" (penis) and repeatedly tries to touch it.

And he's not an exhibitionist just because he likes to strip buttnaked, examine himself in the mirror as he stands on the toilet, and then happily waddle around the living room squeezing his package.

At least these are things I tell myself every day.

Since Moose is only four, I know I have years of "pee-nah" issues in the future.

Maybe I'm just jealous that I don't have one.

So funny! And a little sad too. I'm right there with you. When I tell Quinn I don't have a penis he always says, "Let's pretend!"
