He's Going To Hate Me For This In A Few Years

I just have to (over)share something DramaBoy said this morning, because it had me totally cracking up and I had no one there to share the moment with.

So we are going through the daily/hourly/minute-ly trial of getting DramaBoy to Keep His Hands Out Of His Pants. PLEASE tell me this is a normal thing for a three-year-old boy, because if not I'm going to be really Worried. I have this horrified nightmare that he's going to grow up to be the next Al Bundy, and God help me if that happens. I might have to move to Australia.

At any rate, this morning I was applying makeup at the bathroom mirror and DramaBoy was sitting on the floor trying to wake up. Since there's no central air piped up into the Skyhouse, it's fairly warm, so he slept just in his underwear last night. Making the oh so fascinating contents that much more easily accessible. I glanced down at him to find that he had tucked the waistband of his underwear UNDER said contents and was playing with You Know What. Not wanting to trigger a tantrum at oh-my-aches-and-purple-eyebags-why-on-earth-did-I-get-into-a-career-with-this-sort-of-wake-up-time o'clock, I asked him sternly, What are you doing, DramaBoy?

His matter-of-fact response?

I'm playing with my penis like a choo choo train.

I'm SO going to print out this post and put it in a photo-album to pull out and show his first serious girlfriend someday.

Oh my goodness...SO funny! And, yes, completely normal.

I wonder what kind of hits you might get from google searchers now! lol

Classic! My son, when he was three and would NOT get out of the long since drained bathtub, was finally convinced to get out when I agreed to his final request: "OK, but can I bring my penis?"

Oh, and I have a 4 year old girl with the same habit of playing with her ... contents.

My girl is worse than my boys are/were. But yes, we've all been there!

Ciaran, so far, has not shown any fascination at ALL with his penis (save for, last week, getting a little mini-erection when Graham changed his nappy and demanding, "Daddy, WHAT is THAT?!" and promptly losing interest.

I understand that it's pretty common, though, and that the best approach is to insist that certain activities are private - i.e., that he can do what he likes in his bedroom on his own but that it's not appropriate for when he's around other people. Some mums have also mentioned that it's a good chance to talk about "good" and "bad" touching from other people.

Awesome story, TeacherMommy! I think you'll be able to blackmail him with this one more than once . . . in the fullness of time.

Yep, normal. All my child development profs were quite long-winded on the subject of its normality.
