Today hubby was changing Boy Terror's diaper (no, he's still not potty trained), and in the course of the conversation, I pointed out that he needs to wipe better. I also said the word "smegma". In front of my daughter.
Never mind the fact that I obviously forget that I'm a mother once in awhile. Get over the horror that in going to happen, when Girl Terror says "smegma" in front of other people.
I need information, people. Is there a "correct" term here that I just don't know? I grew up with sisters, in a house where the name for a vagina was "susie". Needless to say, I have never needed to know how to address this topic before. I asked Hubby what guys call it. He said "Nothing. It is not spoken of. We do NOT talk about smegma." Great. Help me out here. How can I teach Boy Terror (since his father is going to go with the time honoured Code of Male Silence) about genital cleanliness if I don't have the words?
