I knew this day was coming.
I anticipated it.
I mean, there’s a reason I’m teaching him to do laundry already.
My four year old has discovered his penis.
It happened a couple months ago. I was away – working or something – and M called to tell me about how he said he couldn’t go potty, because his pepe was “too big.” [My husband has explained that it was morning wood. OH THE THINGS YOU LEARN BEING A BOYMOM.] It was funny at the time.
It was not so funny two nights ago when I sent him to his bedroom to put his PJs on after his bath and two minutes later, walked in on him playing with it. I tried to explain to him that he shouldn’t do that, but he laughed at me.
At least he hasn’t done it in public yet. To my knowledge, anyway. Though I think that’s something his teacher would email or call me about. I would hope so anyway.
Any advice from BoyMoms with older kids? And no, “drink more” is not an option. [At least, not one approved by my doctors.]
