6 year old girl sexually aroused?

My daughter just turned 6 years old and hasn't been exposed to any sexual behavior other than what she sees on the Disney Channel.

Yesterday she was watching an episode of ICarly when two of the characters decided to get their first kiss over with, by kissing each other (short kiss on the lips).

As she was watching this, she said "My pee pee is pumping when they kiss".  

This seems way early to me, for a 6 year old's body to be making the sexual connections...am I wrong?  She knows a little about sex, but not much.  There are no men in our home, and everything she has seen is platonic.

Is this normal?

Be thankful that she is being open with you. Listen to her with interest. She doesn't know why she is feeling, she just knows she is feeling. Some things just excite kids that way. When I was young, around 10, I was attracted to tweety bird in the cartoons with Silvester. I look back now in disgust. Wondering how I could have felt like that towards a cartoon character. Things come and go. Just be there to see the path with her and to guide her. Heck, if I told my parents how I felt towards tweety bird, they couldn't explain it away. LOL

Ok, I am relieved that I'm not alone here.  My daughter, also 6, just informed me (right after seeing two people kiss as well) that it makes her "pee pee tingle" and that it makes it feel like she has to go pee.  I've always been completely resolved that I will never make my kid feel embarrassed for being open, that I will never treat her like something about her body or the way she feels physically or emotionally is "wrong"....but she's only SIX, so when she said this I couldn't help but kind of frown and look at her incredulously and then I just kept going about my business.  I wish I would have reacted differently, that I would have known EXACTLY what to say without being dismissive or without making it taboo. I do remember in kindergarten that I was very curious, even kissed a kid at the bus-stop (most innocent kiss EVER) and I remember I would be aroused in a way.  Still though, six seems a bit young to be aroused so strongly like that.  Siggghhhh, wish they could just stay babies forever.
