My DD asked DH yesterday morning if he had a "Wee Wee' and before he could answer asked "Can I see it?". This was at 5:30 in the morning so talk about waking you up!! She had crawled into bed w/ me as he was leaving for work. I have no idea why this subject came up. Thankfully, it was dark and I couldn't see his face because I'm sure he was in shock! I talked to her later in the morning and explained that boys used their "Wee Wee' to go to the bathroom and it was their private part like girl's had private parts. I told her we shouldn't ask to see or play with it and if a boy or grown man ask her to see or play with one to tell daddy or me immediatley. I then told her the correct term was Penis but little boys sometimes call it their Wee Wee. She just looked at me and had no comments but I know my daughter and she took it all in. I did ask her how she knew what it was called and it was because the babysitter's 2 yr old came in the room the other day w/o his pants out. The babysitter had already told me about this so I was glad that Bri had the same story.

What would you have done in this situation? I don't want to give her TOO much info. since she is 5 yrs old.

I think you answered it perfectly. I'm not sure I would have been so calm at the moment. LOL I don't think you gave too much information, just the basics. Its amazing how such small people can send us reeling sometimes. LOL

AAACK, my DH would have started screaming for me! Wow, you did handle it well. I have never had to deal with this but if I ever do I sure hope I can manage to stay calm and remember to answer like this.

Whew, the things kids say!!!!
