'Mell My Winger

Here's one for the baby book.

Violet's new favorite game to play? 'Mell My Winger. Otherwise known as "Smell My Finger," a game that, though highly inappropriate and totally gross, fascinates and delights her. Endlessly.


In the car, on the way to pick up Hazel from preschool:

"Mama? You 'mell my winger?"

"No, Violet. That's rude."

"You 'mell it, Mama? It 'mell like my BUTT!"


In the car, on the way home from picking up Hazel:

"Hazel! 'Mell my winger!"

"Okay!... EWWWWWW!" (Falls for it every time, agrees that this game is hilarous).

"It 'mell like my ba-dinah!"

"Yeah! It does... hey Violet, say 'vulva.'"


"Mama! Violet's talking about her private parts not in private!"

(Guess who's really into the "All About My Body" book?)


Now that she is wearing underwear during the day, access to her girly parts is free and unlimited. There's a lot of, um, exploring going on. Especially in the car, where there's not much else to do. We've had the "private parts" talk, but that means absolutely nothing to her. She's going through her naked phase, and discovering her body, and I'm cool with that. I get it. But it's startling, and not a little off putting, to look over my shoulder while changing lanes, and see Violet mining for gold down there.

It's a good thing she doesn't wear rings. It's also a good thing that my car's windows are tinted dark black; if people could see what was going on in the backseat, they would.... well, they would change lanes, at the very least.

If I had known that the arrival of big girl underpants leads directly to round the clock "exploration," I might not have been so stressed out about getting potty training going.

That is beyond hilarious. My daughter has been a masturbator since roughly 6 months of age, so I can only imagine how things will progress once she experiences the unfettered access of underwear. Right now, however, her main mode of amusing herself and others involves putting her foot to her nose and saying "Pee-yew!" Like 50 times a day, no exaggeration.

"'Mell my winger." I am going to be laughing about that for weeks.

My husband and I have both been laughing about this all day. This is HIGHlarious. Our guy is only one. I can't wait to hear what he has to say once he can actually string words together.

I chuckled as well...and really don't have much else to say - except I totally dig the way you are handling this new stage of development.
