A conversation with M-: Sounds like a mini bagel

The following is a conversation from this weekend, between my 2-year-old daughter M- and her beleaguered doll (seen here) who is definitely not voiced by me:

M- (announcing to the room, for at least the seventh time): That's your bagina! See that? It's your bagina.

Doll (with a suspiciously familiar, exceedingly high-pitched voice): Yes, I see that... can I have my pants back now, please, so everyone can stop looking at my "bagina"?

M- (not looking up from tending to the other doll in her arms): No you can't.



You may also enjoy my other (4 YO son) D- conversations, (2YO daughter) M- conversations, and (wife) J- conversations.

ahahaha, bagina.

If and when I have kids, I'd be almost scared to take them out in public for fear of what mispronunciations would come flying out of their mouths.

Friend's daughter calls it her 'China' which can be very confusing, but relatively safe in public.

In my household it is called a peepka. The name has been passed down for generations. Bagina is just as good! :)

Wow. This is a conversation (with three sons) that will never, EVER be heard in our home. It's like a foreign language. PS-- Can you please come teach my toddler to speak? Thanks.

Oh, but goldfish, once they speak, you have to watch out for what they say......

Gabriel woke up at 3am Sunday night/Monday morning, marched into my room, woke me up, and did he want water? No.

"Mom? Did you know my dad has a wiener? Because he's a man?"

When I saw such a short post, I was a little disappointed ... but no, amazing writer that you are, in less than 100 words, I am laughing. A lot. Such a perfect post.

My daughter somehow decided that I was using whipped cream on her diaper rash instead of desitin. I was unaware of this substance discrepancy until we were in a bagel store and she told the old lady in front of us, "Mommy puts whipped cream on my gy-nie. Makes it feel better."

And to think I was so eager for her to start speaking...

A good lesson learned....one's bagina cannot always be covered up when we want it to be. What???

My 2 year old son answered the phone a few weeks ago when my sister called. He said "Hi, Aunt Liz. Me and Daddy have penises." She was like "......ummm....congratulations?"
