I seem to have run into a little "situation" if you will. And I'm in need of some guidance here.
(disclaimer....I am fully aware that this could prove of utmost embarrassment to my child in future years, but I claim parental rights TO embarrass him. PLUS, he's TWO, and therefore this is cute. If it's still happening at 8 then we'll have something to be concerned about)
In recent weeks my sweet little Maximus has discovered his,ummm, how do I put this delicately....his "member." And by discovered I mean every time I change his diaper he trys or just does grab his wee little peeper and proudly says "My pee pee, I touch it." But this is generally taken care of in a swift manner and all is well. UNTIL recently, in which something more sinister has begun to happen. He has noticed the sensation of mmm hmmm, growing "bigger." And he's decided that diapers should be an optional item. Any chance he gets he removes the offending diaper and runs around giggling, proudly saying "I take my diaper off." giggle, giggle, giggle. OR, he'll take it off and then sit on the couch with the most adorable little sneaky look on his face waiting for me to notice and say something. He thinks this is absolutely hysterical! And it's all fun and games until he pees on the couch, or wipes his poopy bum on Maggies sheets. Yes, both have happened. I have found that if I always keep pants on him then we don't have the streaker problem. And I've also discovered that when He pushes for diaper freedom the reason is....he's "bigger" as he puts it. He's trying to figure out this feeling.
Then, just yesterday, as I was standing in my bedroom I heard him walking down the hall saying "I got my penis, I got my penis, I got my penis" (let me remind you he is BARELY 2). I peeked around the corner to find him wrist deep in his pants and diaper proudly telling me "I GOT MY PENIS." I gently removed his hand from his who who dilly and told him in my kindest Mommy way....."look kid we don't yanky the wanky." OR I said, "no no maxi, we don't play with that." To which he replied....."WHY NOT?" Ummm yeah, good question.
Seriously....what do I do with this? What is the protocal here? I get that there is a certain amount of discovery to be had. But, at what point is it over the top? A little input from Mommies of boys here. I'm all ears. What "wood" you do? (Oh my sides......I slay me).
And in other news...I got a wild hair and decided the time has come to redo my bedroom. We've had the same decore for the 9 years of our marriage, and it has served us well. BUT, I'm ready for a change, and I'm excited for the ideas. I will keep you posted on the transformation as it happens. Anyway...I sold all my decore on Craigslist. Some lady came and bought it ALL for her daughters bedroom. She got a SMOKIN deal, that's all I'm gonna say. I've also sold several other things from around the house for a little extra cash. YAY for Craigslist. Now, I'm on a quest for anything else I can find to sell. Aren't you all excited for me?
Speaking of exciting....the commercial has had 16,000 views in the 2 days since it was released! How FUN is that? I just wanna thank you all for your great comments and support.
Also happening this week...ME dancing in a "rockette" routine for our Christmas party. It's AWESOME! I will be posting pics of our totally cute costumes. Let's just get something straight...me "dancing" anything is ridiculous. Me in this get up (which is adorable) and me "dancing"....RE-DONK! Hope I don't give anyone eye cancer.
Also....I totally lost my voice, just woke up Thursday to squeaks and sqwaks. It is the MOST annoying thing EVER! And frustrating and exhausting. Maggie keeps asking WHEN I will get my voice back. Here is for hoping SOON!!
That said....I'm outy.
