I’ve been wondering, if this baby (size of a booger) is a boy, what are we going to call his penis?

Should we use the standard term? Will he be made fun of if one day, he calls it his penis when all the other boys call it something much cooler, like dick? I’d rather not have my son use the word dick. But, I guess it’s better than him getting beat up for sounding like a wimp by using the word penis.

Perhaps we should call it a “willy”. Is that still a term these days? Sounds silly.

Maybe we could use the term my Dad used when we were growing up. Chicken. Yes, chicken. This was the code word my Dad and his buddies would use when referring to a penis around little ears. Why they would talk about a penis enough to constitute use of a code word is beyond me. Not crazy about chicken. If we start this early enough, it could do some long term damage if I annouce that we’re having fried chicken for dinner.

Pecker? Nope. Reminds me of chicken.

Little Solidier? Sounds stupid.

Perhaps this is best left up to Daddy, but I will reserve full vetoing rights – we don’t need an “Incredible Hulk” in our son’s underpants.

    We have a “weiner” over here. Who knew these would be blog-worthy decisions, huh?

    I vote for penis. Willy is creepy, chicken is laughable and dick is slightly offensive.

    We say “pee-pee” or “wee-wee”. Not quite sure if those are politically correct, but they work for now.

    Totally have to comment on this one! Wondered the same thing when my first child was born with a penis! At the onset of awareness I started calling it a pee-pee. Then out of nowhere at the age of 2 1/2 my son began to call his…”Big Me”. Go figure. I don’t know what the repercussions will be for him later in life but there you have it. LOL!
