A conversation between my daughter and I the other evening….
Frog: Mummy have tuppy.*
Me: Yes poppet. I have a tuppy, because I am a girl. How about you?
Frog: Ummmmm. I have tuppy.
Me: Yes, that’s right. Because you are a girl.
Frog: NO! I NOT GIRL!
Me: I’m afraid you are petal. Nothing I can do about that.
Frog: I NOT GIRL! I STRAWBERRY!
Fair enough. Glad we got that one sorted then.
*NOTE: Not my choice of word. But we’ve covered this before.

Awww, can I be a strawberry too. Sounds much better
I’m not sure strawberries can knit though…
That’s fruitist that is. Strawberries can do what ever they want! =O
but the question is, do strawberries have a tuppy or a willy?
I’ve checked – according to F, they have a tuppy. So now you know.
Sausage went through a similar stage but she became obsessed with boobies and nipples. We were in a crowded changing room once and she said, at the top of her voice, “Mummy, I LOVE your nipples!” – I could hear sniggering for a 5 cubicle radius!
Ha! I rather think I have all this to come…

Oooh I like strawberry much better than tuppy. She could start a new trend!

Aw that’s so sweet! Strangely enough my ‘funnee’ is also on the topic of toddlers and their bits, it must be a preoccupation at that age!
