My Boy and his Stuff.... Yeah, that...

Well, it looks like I've entered a new stage with my sweet, precious son.  He is slowly but surely growing into a young man, and his natural curiosity about his body is blossoming.  To put it in a less fruity way, the kid can't stop playing with himself!

Now, he's only two, so it is of course very innocent, but still, it isn't something I care to watch all day long.  Brennan is in the midst of potty training, so when he wants to run around the house in only his underwear, I let him.  It simplifies the potty process.  On the downside, that also makes penis access much easier for him. I mean, there is a hole right there!  And in his mind, what else would a strategically placed underwear hole be for, but hanging himself out of?

I can't even tell you how many times I had to tell Brennan to quit messing with himself, only yesterday!  And if I didn't notice, then I'd hear his little voice say, "Mommy?  Can you put my penis back in?"  or "Mommy?  My penis is out again."  I'm not gonna lie- I can't help but laugh.  But still, after the 14th or 15th penis tuck, I was getting tired of it.

Finally, I'd had enough.  I brought Brennan to his room and put on his only underwear without a hole in the front!  Let's see you yank it out now, buddy!  After this, things settled down for the day.

Yesterday wasn't the first time we've had issues with this sort of thing.  Last week, I was in the bathroom cleaning one of Bryleigh's diapers when Brennan came in- "Mom?  I peed a little..."  Without looking up, I told him that accidents happen and I would get him some clean undies.  He says, "But they're dry."  Huh?  I looked up to see him standing there, undies up with the little guy poking out.  Sweet.  Now to find the puddle on the floor.

If there is a bright spot in all of this, my Dad found it.  "If there is ever a time in his life when Brennan can't keep it in his pants, now is the best!"


  1. Thanks for the Giggle! It is so funny when they start discovering parts of their body.

    1. Thanks for stopping by! You are right. It really is funny! Just hope he gets it all figured out before he goes off to school. :)


I LOVE comments! I hope you'll leave one for me! Have a great day!
