Hubby of the Decade

Go look at this ring:

This ring is something that I've wanted for the last 5 years. This same ring is now on my finger. My sweet husband completely floored me yesterday by giving it to me for my birthday/anniversary/Valentine gift. It was such a loving gesture from him. Though now that think about it, he might be warming me up so he can buy a new gun for hunting season.
Either way, I'm feeling very loved this week and a little sad because he left to visit our friends in China.
Pray for his plane connections as he's flying standby.

Last night my 4 yr old son was wrapped up in his towel after his bath and asked me, "Mom, do I have tentacles?"
Me:"Um no, squid's have tentacles."
Caedmon: "Oh I thought I had some on my butt"
Me: "You mean testicles?!"
Caedmon: "Yeah, do I have those?"
Me: "Yes honey, you do"
I've always advocated correct terminology of body parts and explaining (age appropriately) their functions. This has helped at times, but there have been some embarrassing moments!

Do you use alternate words for body parts or are you explicit?

what a beautiful ring! How lovely!

And yes, we use anatomically correct words in our house too. It was actually a little tough for me! What can I say, I am easily embarrassed. But it is good I think.

We say balls, testicals, nads, nuts, junk. I have olders kids and no matter what you call it when they're little, they'll have their own language when they're older. Ahh...the joy of teenagers.
That ring is sensational! You're a lucky woman!

The ring is beautiful! Enjoy!

We mostly just use the term 'privates', though they know the correct term. They don't know they slang terms. One of the benefits of homeschooling.

Aww! What a great hubby you have...hopefully you don't miss him too much while he's gone! And as for body parts...hmmm, I have thought about what we are going to do...but my son is only 1 1/2 I still haven't quite decided.
