I already use wee and pooh to describe his ..... well wee and pooh and he is saying these words now himself.
His bottom is called bottom or bum and his front trouser area, ok his penis, is called willy *sniggers* Sorry I am childish but I still find that word funny and when the movie Free Willy was released in my youth, well I found that very funny!
Anyway, we haven't had to explain to him yet what Mummy has where a willy should be, as sometimes he says I have a willy. I would like to point out once and for all that I do not have a willy. This conclusion of his has come from when we have discussed who in the house has a willy and Burton added me to the list after Daddy, him and Jenson! If the question does pop up I shall tell him that Mummy has a fanny *sniggers* again - I know another example of my childish humour but come on, the word fanny is funny. I mean, they are practically the same word apart from one vowel!!
But I don't know what word to use for him breaking wind. His Daddy thinks we should use fart/farted/farting but I don't think that word is suitable for a toddler to say. Call me old fashioned, but it seems to me to be more of a word that teenagers use and not two year olds.
When I grew up we didn't use that word in my family home. In fact we didn't break wind openly in front of each other either and the only time I ever did was when when I was much younger and I laughed so much that a noise erupted from my bottom! Oh the shame! I was mortified and blushed! The ONLY time I have ever heard my Mum break wind was when I was a teenager and we were in some public toilets and one slipped out, like it does, when Mum sat on the loo before having a wee (she would kill me if she knew I had just shared this information!). Oh I thought that was very amusing - although I didn't laugh in front of her of course, but oh how I laughed!
Anyway, I wondered off for a bit then didn't I? So back to the task at hand!
My point is that my family were not very open about discussing bodily functions and parts - I can't remember what words I was brought up to use for boys and girls body parts, or the noises which escaped from my bottom for example. I don't want to be that prude-ish with my boys but I don't want to be crude either. I just can't think of a suitable name. I mean all I can think of so far is a choice from the following:
Popping (my nan used this and so does Burton's paternal grandma)
Wind/breaking wind/windy pops
But these are just a bit silly really aren't they?
Have you any better suggestions?
Am I being silly about not using farting for the reasons I gave? Is this the better word to use afterall?
I can't believe I am reduced to asking people what word is best to use to describe bottom burps! *shakes head slowly*
