Jack carried this DVD case over to me yesterday morning and said, “What’s this?”

I lied. I told him it’s a stick. Is it wrong of me to teach him the wrong term because I don’t want the word “gun” to be part of his vernacular?

Why is it that I don’t have a problem teaching him “penis” or “nipples” but the word “gun” makes me cringe?

At least if I lied to my toddler yesterday I didn’t have to lie to the pediatrician. Henry had his 2 month well-baby visit. They did not ask me if he’s sleeping on his back (which they often do ask) so I didn’t have to lie. But they did tell me my baby is huge. 13lbs 3oz and 24 3/4 inches tall! How big was Jack at 2 months?
