In my mind vagina is the opposite of a penis. Boys and penises and girls have vaginas.
I don't think it's wrong either way, it just comes out more naturally to me.
In terms of calling breastmilk "nums" in our house, it evolved from
1. Do you want something yummy? to
2. Do you want something nummy? to
3. Do you want some nums?
My daughter is well acquainted with breastmilk, milk, breasts, nipples, nursing etc.
As someone else said, it's like kitty vs. cat. I'll say "night-night," napsky, etc because I like to play around with language. I used to say messcagisms for messages for a long time until my husband pointed out that is sounds like gizm, something I wouldn't have thought of.
Anyway, I think it's great that you say vulva. But, I really don't see why it bothers you when we say vagina in our house.
