We live in a female-centric house. Mr Chaos bemoans being the only male in the house on a regular basis. We do, however, have very close friends who have two boys within 6 months in age of both of the girls, and they’re like siblings.
Last weekend the eldest boy (4) was in our garden and relieved himself against a tree! DG having seen this, then wanted to wee outside. We told her that we’re not allowed to go in the garden, and she argued about her friend. So we said that he wasn’t allowed either but did mention that it was easier for boys to wee outside than for girls.
Yesterday, DG again decided that she wanted to wee outside and we said ‘no’, and again she said “Boys can wee outside”, then she thought for a bit and added: “Because they have trunks.”
About two months ago, DG also first noticed that daddy was different and commented: “Daddy, you’ve got a tail!”
I think MG said something similar at about the same age. I love how because we don’t have boys in the house and haven’t really needed to use a male-centric body vocabulary that they use words they know to describe what they’re seeing!
What unusual vocabulary have your children used to describe things? Please share below
