“Bum!”

11 Nov

After many debates, Aaron and I decided early on that we were going to use the word “bottom” for butt/bum/ass with Hannah.  I was in favour of the word bum as I thought it was the non-rude form of butt.  Aaron, on the other hand,  thought bum was the rude form of bottom.

“In Australia, bum is a bit rude.”  He told me.

“Oh, not in America.”  Or maybe it is, I don’t know, I grew up in a trailer, what do you expect?

The mobile home I lived in until 4th grade

I didn’t want to teach her a potentially rude word though, so, bottom it was.

“How’s your nappy Bubba, did you do a poo-poo?”  I asked Hannah.  *Checks nappy* “Peeee-you, that is stinky!!  Mommy is going to change your bottom.”

“BUM!”  She proclaimed cheekily.  I don’t know how she learned that word, but she’s been saying to for ages, and loving it.  Every time I say bottom, she yells bum.  She used to wave and instead of saying bye-bye, she’d say bum.

I’m sure my laughing when she says it doesn’t help things, but how can I not laugh, it’s so funny!  I’m trying not to laugh.  Let’s just say I’m working on it….
