Body parts

Warning: this is one of those parenting blog posts that isn't the most tasteful. Read at your own risk! And now that I've built up your curiosity....

Zoodle is learning body parts. Being a boy, he's a little obsessed with one particular part under his diaper. So last night during a diaper change, I showed The Engineer some of Zoodle's skills in body part identification.

"Zoodle," I said, "Where's your nose?"

He obligingly pointed. Daddy praised him.

"Where are your eyes?" I asked.

Daddy was again impressed by Zoodle's accurate pointing.

"Where's your penis?" I asked. Then, "Where's your bottom?"

Daddy laughed when Zoodle happily used his hands to pat the said parts.

"After all that," The Engineer cautioned me, "just don't ask him where his mouth is."

Haha, poor Zoodle. I have a feeling some day blogs will be the equivalent of showing his first date the embarrassing photos.

Hah!
That's part of why I don't use names on my blog. This stuff doesn't need to come up on google in 25 years when my boy is applying for a job.
