UnDomestic

Writings of a teachermom, choosing to stay home with her kids, while loathing all domestic responsibilities! In late Aug. 2008, I was diagnosed with Triple Negative breast cancer. After surgery, chemo and radiation, I was given theall clear. However, in the late summer of 2008, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor, which metasticized to other areas.

Word Confusion

Today in the car, Cameron heard a radio host talk about a home video she recently saw. In it, she was 7 years old and the camera caught her threatening her brother, telling him that if he didn't sing Happy Birthday to her, she'd kick him in his testicles really hard.

Cameron was actually listening and asked, "Mommy, what's testicles?"

I told him and he just sorta gigled. Then he said with a big grin, "On SpongeBob there's Squidward Testicles!" and he laughed. His actual name is Squidward Tentacles.

Now really, must such words sound so much a like? The other night he told Melvin that he didn't like Vagina, as Melvin placed some Lasagna on his plate.

Cari:

I certainly hope you all cleared that up, we'd certainly hate to see the baby going around telling people that his mama and daddy lets him eat "vagina". (smile)

I was unable to say china as a young lad - thought it would be confused with vagina. A little knowledge and so-so diction is a dangerous thing.
