First of all…be sure to enter my giveaway…Scroll down and enter!! Today is the last day… Now…you can read my really interesting and fascinating as always post!!
After I sent my daughter off to the bus stop this morning, I grabbed my coffee and sat down on the couch with my youngest son. A morning rountine. Sit, cuddle, spill coffee all over the couch…good times. Really!!
This morning. I shudder with the memory but…I will continue this story…gag…
He was sitting all bundled up underneath a burgandy fuzzy blanket. The only thing you could see was his head. And…movement under the blanket…
I asked him what he was doing under there. What all the commotion was beneath the blankie.
He replied that he was itching his penis.
He has super dry skin and I wasn’t able to slather him with lotion as well as I would have liked, last night after his bath.
Then…suddenly…and without warning…
He pulled the blanket down to reveal…
“Look Mommy! My penis got tall.”
“Um…that’s because you keep touching it. So…maybe leave it alone and it will get short again.”
“No, that’s OK.” And he sticks his hands back under the blankets and heads them towards the nether-regions.
“Because Mommy…” He says, with his eyes starting to glaze over…as much as an almost 5 year olds eyes can…glaze over…”It feels good.” He smiles…
“It feels reeeaaaaaaallllll gooooooodddd!!”
So…I made him PROMISE that he would NEVER, EVER…
Make his “penis tall” in school and walk around showing everyone…
And he said…
“I promise, Mommy. I’ll only show you. I show you EVERYTHING”
“Honey…you REALLY don’t have to show Mommy EVERYTHING. Please…don’t show Mommy EVERYTHING”
Do you see the look I’m giving you, my friends? Do you see it? Because…I don’t know what to say about this except…
LOCK ME UP!! NOW!!
Boys will be boys, I guess. Only…I wish that he’d do it in private!!!
You just made me so happy that I don’t have a boy. I didn’t realize it could feel so good at such a young age. Too funny!
My son has been doing that for a year (but he doesn’t articulate it so well). I’m firmly convinced that he pottytrained himself at age 2 just so he could have access.

That is freakin’ hilarious!
Ahhh. I have 2 boys, but under the age of 3. So far, they are not allowed to touch there only to clean and pee… no exceptions!

LOL. You’ve reminded me of every little boy I’ve ever nannied, but especially one who was delighted to show his mom how he could wag his penis up and down. And he was only 3!

LOVE the new digs!!!
Let me just say I’m glad my kid’s not the only one! Nick will be 4 next week and has “played with his peter” for the past YEAR. (“Look! It gets BIG, MOMMY!”) Neither hubs nor I know exactly how to handle the situation – we don’t want him to think that kind of thing is bad, but we don’t want it to be completely inappropriate, either. He tends to do his, um, “rubbing” at night, so we make an issue of him not listening to us when we tell him to go to sleep. Save me…what else do you do?
