Where’s your Kukuy?

One milestone common to all 14-month old toddlers is knowing at least one body part. It may be the eyes, nose, ears or mouth. But not my son. His is kukuy (local slang for male genitalia). And I’m sharing to you our “conversation” below.

Me: Zyk, touch your nose.
Zyk: <Blank stare>
Me: Touch your ears.
Zyk: <No reaction…>
Me: Asa  imu (Where are your) eyes? ( I used his mother tongue in stead of English. )
Zyk: <Still no reaction…>
Me: Zyk, where’s your kukuy?
Zyk: <In an instant, he pointed at his crotch!>
