new here and question about my 6yo DD

I have 3 kids. My oldest is my DD who is 6 1/2 years old (recently started 1st grade). Like most girls her age, she is obsessed with High School Musical. Tonight as i tucked her in bed she said something that completely freaked me out. She said that at the end of the movie when Troy and Gabrielle kiss she feels "funny in my private". Is this normal??? AM I reading way too much into this? She is a normal girl-- has little crushes on boys at school, etc...but has been very sheltered. I am so confused right now.

Thanks,
C

OOO loaded question.

I guess it depends on your parenting style.

My gut reaction would be to ignore unless she brings it up again.

Is it normal? Yes! Perfectly! My 7-yo son told me about a year ago that he sometimes feels like he has to pee when he sees a pretty girl on TV or in real life--same thing. Just don't make too much of it; I pretty much just said, "Hmm, that's interesting," and left it at that... I actually remember getting that feeling for the first time when playing with Barbie & Ken dolls at about the same age. I think it is just nature taking its course.
