I Found a Hair in My Burger

Teaching Our Daughter About Her Cheeseburger describes how a parent is torn between using the word vagina or cheeseburger to describe her daughter’s anatomy.

My wife and I don’t dumb-down words to our three year old daughter, although the author above does make a good point:

…I think that calling it a vagina will get tiring. Vagina is such a laborious word. It’s got three distinct syllables and you almost have to chew the word to get it out. What we’re looking for is something cuter. Vagina is not cute.

  1. Wow, such a silly topic got such an overwhelming response. We just refer to the proper terms with Vanessa. She knows them both in English and French.
