My 6 year old daughter is very interested in body parts now. I know this is totally normal, but what I don't remember from that age is trying so hard to see them. But she's not curious about daddy, she's curious about me. Now I'm pretty open-minded and haven't really hidden myself from her but she's told me she's peeked at me in the shower and she pokes (yes, pokes) my breasts alot. She also puts her head on them when she's hugging me. Is that part normal? Is it because she's wondering if she'll look like this when she's older? She does keep asking if her boobs will be big like mine. I don't ever want her to be embarassed about her curiosity or her body but this unnerves me a bit. I tell her 'don't do that' in a casual way when she pokes me. I'm sure the hugging on my chest thing is a security thing. It all started when I started breast-feeding my sons (one 18 months, one 2 months). I never hid it from her. Neither of them are breast-fed now (not my choice) so I was just wondering. Anyone have similar experiences?
