The Stem

February 9, 2009

When Yahoo #1 was just shy of two, he decided his unit, or thing down there, or if I must... penis needed a new name. He chose and still chooses to call it his "stem". Yahoo #2 has followed suit.

At our house it's still the "stem". This is great because that whole birds-and-the-bees conversation will be a breeze:

Son, you put the stem in the flower and KAPOW! Fireworks.

Have they found the "gumballs" in the "downpart"?

Ok you don't know me, but I had to comment on how amazing this post is. Just amazing. (I'm Meg Romo's sister BTW).

Especially apropos for the teen years considering the verb forms of the word.

But now lets take a few moments and consider a few common flowers: Forget-Me-Not, Gladiolus, Impatiens, Morning Glory, Pansies, Peonies, Speedwell, and Tulips.

What sticking your stem in a bush and scaring out little varmits.

Brings a pretty funny new meaning to the expression, "from stem to stern," doesn't it?
