Anatomy - a girl's body

"Mommy, why do boys have dingies?" ~ LB
"Mommy, what is that hanging-down thingy?" ~ LB
"Mommy, do I have what you have? Will mine be as big as yours? I hope they're bigger!" ~ CoM

Yeah. So we're studying the human body this week. All men and all women have basically the same things. We don't have the same privates, true, but all the pieces are still there. Oh, and women have one more thing men don't. We're not going there.
We have 5 senses. So last week we covered our eyes with a black scarf and stuffed cotton in our ears. We were blind and Deaf. We learned the importance of learning Sign Language - and this week we're doing a reinforcing class in Sign. We bought a magnetic book on the human body so CoM can put together a body. Heart, lungs, ribs, arm bone, leg bone, hands, intestines, liver and kidneys. Each page has something new for her to discover.
I bought CoM an American Girls book on self-care and hygiene. She's an avid reader and seems to soak up information like a sponge. I'm very proud of our girl. LB wants to do what sister does, of course, so is learning by watching and doing.
This looks to be a very interesting week, then we're off for a week of Spring Break and celebrating the Cross and Resurrection of our Lord.
What are some ways to care for our bodies beyond the regular bath/hair/teeth routines that are affordable and effective?
What are your favorite at-home spa recipes?

  1. Stress to the girls that our bodies are God's temple - where the Holy Spirit lives. A healthy diet and plenty of exercise and drinking lots of water are ways to take care of our body, too. Sounds like an interesting time!

We are all fearfully & wonderfully made, so let's see how much of that wonderful we can share!
