"He" and "She"

I was explaining to my 3 years old girl the difference between boys and girls one day. I guess it was time for her to know the difference. I told her that a girl like her wears dresses and put on beautiful stuff. And boy wears pants and shorts. Girl usually has longer hair while boy wears short hair.

One day while I was changing Baby Jay's diaper, my little gal asked me about penis. She was curious about Baby Jay's penis and wonder why her little brother has it, so I told her that is a penis (I used "little bird" term for penis). I also told her that only boys have penises. That another difference between boys and girls.

I am very open-minded when it comes to sexuality as there is nothing to be ashamed of. So she was pretty comfortable seeing me walking in the room naked. *wink* Sometimes she will compare her breasts with mine. So I told her that mummy is a big girl called "woman" and when she grows bigger like mummy, she will have bigger breasts and becomes a woman like mummy. Sometimes she will take my bra, putting it on her chest and parading around. Lol!!

When she quarrels with her dad, she will use "boy" more than "man" to her dad. Like "Daddy is a lazy boy, always play computer games". Now she is becoming to be a great nagger like me. Lol!! Like the saying that goes "Boys will always be boys!"

yeah that's good & important to expose the kids the knowledge of sex at young age. I guess it's not a sensitive issue...

Rose, good to be open minded on sexuality especially when it comes to explaining to your little girl. By the way, has your breast size reduced since you have reduced in weight after birth? wat is your breast size now? I also sometimes walk around naked and my children sees me.

Rose said...

Hi Princess, my breast still remain the same, 36C. I guess not so easy to reduce breast fats! hahaha!

princess said...

hi rose, oh 36C, from your pics posted yr breasts looked bigger.
36C is a nice size n I am sure yr hubby loves them,did breastfeeding earlier make the shape drop? My breasts shape drop slightly due to the big size. M nipples now are darker brown in color after birth of my second child. Are your nipples darker in color?
