Ladies, Yours are No Longer Called Nipples

posted in: Parenting 5 comments

Newsflash! I kid you not. I have heard it from Miles, who is absolutely certain, that those things on your chest in the middle of your boobs are not called nipples. They have a better name, a more fun name, and one that should be said with a bit of laughter and a definite sing song voice.

Don’t be the last one calling these things nipples. While I told Miles that the world, in fact, does have the same name for this particular body part shared by boys and girls, men and women, I am changing my mind. This is better, more fun…and he is right…they are different. These babies feed babies! They look different. He thinks they are cool and dammit he is right.

So, I give you Miles and his big announcement. We now have Snipples. Spread the word. You wouldn’t want to be the last one calling them just nipples now would you?

So, what do your kids call body parts?  I bet there are some good ones out there!

Try it out.  Say it in a crowd.  Snipples ladies!

    What a hoot! I love how he even argued with you in the video. You did present a great logical argument, by the way:)

    Haha! Love it! My toddler is convinced that anything from the neck to the groin area is a ‘belly’ so when I’m breastfeeding the baby he thinks she is kissing my belly! He has no idea at all.. I will teach him snipples, its much better :-D

    That’s funny! My 19 month old son has noticed there is something there when I change his diaper. I believe in teaching proper names so I told him what it was called but he says it “TINA” which is our friend’s name. That had us cracking up.

    HAHA! I love it. You should try to work in snipples in the conversation when you’re out in public just to see how the people around you react.
