We have no problem with it, though I have more than a few friends who obviously don't like the term.. I try to teach the girls to say bottom when we're around others, but they occasionally slip up We also use other words that may be viewed as 'less-than-appropriate'- though the kids never seem to blurt those out
For me, "butt" seems totally normal and fine..
(I meant 'no way' on the poll, btw!! )
ds is 2 and will often annouce at the playground "sit on my BUTT and slide down the slide on my BUTT"
I also say "booty" but usually in the context of it hangin' out as in "oh your booty's hangin' out of your pants!"
There is no such thing as bad weather. Only bad clothing.
they would constantly dance (even with no music, whatsoever) and shake their butts around while shouting "booty bounce, booty bounce, everyone do a booty bounce"
I almost forgot about that!
(my youngest has been ECing for quite some time too, which is why 'butt' has been so popular lately.. as in "MOM!!!! Soren's butt has a squished grape on it" )
I see nothing wrong with butt, hiney, tushy, booty, or bum. We used them all when the kids were little, and now we all pretty much just say "ass" if we're in casual company.
The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it. We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.
I don't like the word "butt." It sounds vulgar to me. Why? I have no idea. But it is certainly not a hill for me to die on, the way "sucks" or "crap" would be, if my children ever used those terms. So yeah, "butt" gets said here and there in our house. But not by me.
