The Penis Problem.

We have a serious problem in our house lately. I call it The Penis Problem. The Penis Problem began a few months ago, when my three year-old son, Davis,started wearing underwear. Freed from the restrictive, super absorbent polymers of his diaper, Davis’s penis had some lost time to make up for, and it didn’t waste a second. Within two days of being potty trained, Davis’s hand took up permanent residence down the front of his pants, as if it were an old person who’d decided to head south and retire, where it was warm. After another few days, however, Davis did away with pants entirely, preferring instead to spend hisdays in a shirt and nothing else. The Why We Must Wear Pants to School discussion became a part of ourmorning routine, like eating breakfast and brushing teeth.

 

The moment he gets home from school, however, the pants come off. And I really do mean the moment he gets home from school. He literally walks in the front door, and before he does anything else, he sits down in the foyer, flings off his shoes and socks, and with great relief, pulls off his pants and underwear and leaves it all in a little boy-pile by the front door. If you saw this, you’d think the pants weighed five hundred pounds and were made of metal, or lined with thumbtacks,maybe. With the Penis flapping in the wind, he then goes off and builds forts with the sofa pillows, plays Power Rangers, creates Lincoln Log behemoths, and practices skateboarding tricks. When he tires of all of this activity, he likes to just walk around and “twirl” himself. As in, "Davis, what are you doing with your penis right now?" "I’m twirling it, mama. I like it." ‘Kay.

 

 

In the last several days, he’s also discovered that his penis can do “tricks.” For example, when he woke up the other morning, he was screaming for me to come into his room. When I arrived, breathless and thinking something horrible had happened, I found him still in bed, his pajama pants casually lying on the floor. "Look mama!" He shouted, pointing at his morning erection, which, apparently, he’d never noticed before. "My penis got big;it can do magic tricks!" Or, like the other night, when I was getting him ready for bed, he discovered that he could make it look like “a hot dog” if he pushed it back so that it retracted into the skin, which he found to be enormously hilarious.

I have 3 hrs old and I have noticed that when I go to take shower,he goes inside the blanket and takes his penis out from the trousers and lies down. He has been doing this from some time now and don't know how to deal with this. Please suggest me something.

Oh boy, I can so relate to this. My daughter was a perpetual nudist (we called it tummy & Toes) as a preschooler and once proudly proclaimed to a stranger in the Target baby department that she didn't have two belly buttons, one of them was a vaginia. My second child never wanted to be naked (not even his toes) but was more than eager to teach his baby brother body parts--starting with the penis. Before he knew where is nose was, my youngest son knew his penis thanks to his brother's help and catchy song. Now, my youngest is 4yo and has a very hard rock song "written" by himself that talks all about his penis, his booty, and everything else he can move on his body. He performs for any guests in our home to his toy electric guitar, or even his accordian if he can't find the former. Body part fascination knows no limits, but I'd rather they have a healthy body image than ever be ashamed of what they look like anywhere. I'll live with the emall embarassments now, with the hope that in the future they will have the confidence to walk proudly into any situation and fell sure of themselves (clothed, of course)

every mom has their nudist. My 4 year old little girl likes to run around the house completely in the nude. and also my 6 year old boy has discovered that his penis is getting bigger and constantly asks his stepfather why that in the morning time his penis is bigger than usual...aka morning wood and my husband told him that it has to deal with going to the bathroom because it embarrased my husband to talk to him at that age.

Oooooh, what I have to look foreward too....=o) My son is about to turn 2, he is not yet potty trained. We just had friends staying with us from out of town, and Oh how he loves to run around naked! It's soo cute though, and our guests are good friends and thought he was darling....
I'm sure as he gets older he will go though the fascination faze too...

first of all, lighten up Elle- maybe you should enjoy a 3 martini playdate. Secondly- OMG! I was cracking up! My son is 4 and finds his penis to be "funny", and giggles when I wash him it in the bath, but has not become completely in love with it, YET. He does, however, refuse to wear anything but underwear when we are at home. Boxer briefs, preferably. We call him Captain Underpants. This time is one to look back at and laugh, an awesome right of passage as a little boy- right up there with peeing in the shrubs!!!

I love this post. I have a two lovely boys, the oldest just turned two years. Already he has an absolute fascination. Recently, he has been upgraded to training pants from diapers. This was with the hope that they would stay on and he would have more difficulty getting them off. NOPE! My little genius has figured out that the training pants can been torn away so he can continue his naked rampage (we are also enjoying the Terrifyingly Teriffic Terrible Twos), I guess that is what I get for marrying a man named Houdini (SERIOUSLY!)

I am just waiting for my youngest to discover that like his brother he has one and play with his own instead of constantly trying to grab his brother's while my husband and I fight to get the training pants back on.

I was laughing so hard after I followed this link from sk*rt... last summer, when we were on vacation visiting my father-in-law, he, my wife, and our 7yo son were watching a video on the upcoming Beijing Olympics. It featured some very graceful and pretty Chinese dancers (you've probably seen some of the amazing things they do on YouTube). I was in the kitchen drinking some water, when I overheard my son say, with some concern in his voice, "Mommy, my penis is getting hard..." - my wife exclaimed loudly in embarrassment, whereupon I rushed into the living room and quickly assured him, "Don't worry, there's nothing wrong with you, it'll go back to normal soon!" My father in law just chuckled.
