Aiden's New Game

Aiden is already aware that Mama and Dada have some important anatomical differences and he likes to talk about it. He likes to talk about his own body too. Recently he extended the discussion to his entire extended family and he has a really large extended family. The game consists of running through parents, aunts, uncles, cousins and wondering or proclaiming if they have a penis. It sounds something like this.....Baba popot. Dada popot. Papa popot. Unca Ik popot. Mama Pepet. And the list goes on and on.

I should mention at this point that popot and pepet are actual Konkanni words and happen to be the only ones he knows in his dad's first language. These aren't necessarily textbook worthy words but they still manage to get the message across.
