Oh my Ms. Jo.. weve reached that age....

So.. Sigh.. Mrs. Jo's post made me be able to write this.

So Gigi watches my kids... And i got there tonight and the kids come out to tell me hi ( I was having her five star spagetti so was staying for a while) and lean down to hug Freida she was wet.. now she has had like two accidents in the past year and a half...... so i'm asking her why she went pee pee in her pants and shes saying i didnt!! I'm like Freida your undies are wet.. she looks at me dead serious and says. mommy.. you forgot to put pants on me today.. now in my head its going click click click... I say then.. "Freida did you just get on the potty and go pee pee cause you thought you had no pants on??" to which she replies yes.... So aparently she forgot she had undies and undie cover on and got on the potty and peed THROUGH her undies.. sigh

So THEN.. as i go to ask Fred if he was a good boy Gigi shesays.. wait.. i need to talk to you befor ewe have the conversation tonight... SO.. she tells me shes bene seeing things from Fred lately and wanted to be sure before she told me fore sure... So today she walks into the room where the kids are and Fred kisses Freidas arms.. then her legs.. then is going.. yea thats right.. so gigi walks in and she freaks obviously.. cause i guess this is what she had been wondering if she was seing for sure. I dont know if he walked in on Dick doing this with his girlfriend since they told me they were over there and daddy and Liz went into the other room. And who knows maybee they walked in on it... so Gigi went through the boys parts and girls parts thing.. then i went through the Your pee pee is your privates and no one gets to touch them but you.. so you dont touch anyone elses either...

OMG .. i know.. and then i have noticed latly he willbe touching himself.. you know my four year old.. so i say Fred.. we do not touch our pee pees around outher people

seriously.. i cant handle having to do seperate baths and dressings already.. and does this mean that i cant walk out of a room while putting my bra and shirt on?? sigh

first...BREATHE!

You've heard enough 'self discovery' tales from over here to know that this is about the age.

You're probably fine with the same rooms, etc.

But it may be time to move out of the bath and seeing mommy nake stage.

It sounded like you handled it great by telling him there was differences and that we don't show anyone else our private areas.

And kudo's for telling him we don't touch our private area's in front of other people and not saying 'we don't touch our private areas'. That saved him a few years of therapy :-)

Just Breathe momma. Little boy is growing up and this is part of the process and the next stage. ;-)

Well, you've gone and scared the shit out of me Pokey. Well done. It's funny to me that in all of their seven and six years of life, I've never had to deal with it from the girls. But Peter found his wanker at the ripe old age of two months old. Since then I've had to remind him during baths, diaper changes, and clothes changes that he should play with his choo choo in front of other people.
I do agree with our sister, Chris,(haha) though that you did a good job using the term "in public" instead of "just don't do it". We all know that his male gene makes it inevitable that he's going to touch it, the only thing we can control is where. And we don't want him to feel like a terrible human being every time he touches his nether regions.
Hang in there. I can only hope and pray for our sakes that it will get better!

Well, DUH Tracy! That could be your problem right there ;-)

OMG!! I totally missed that little mistake! Thanks so much Chris for pointing that out! It should have read "we tell him that he should NOT play with his choo choo in front of other people." I am so embarrassed!!!!

My son is 4 and has been touching himself lately. Today, when I saw him doing it, I asked him if he had to go potty. (When he does this, it is usually a sign that he does need to go.) But, he said "No mommy, I am just shaking my penis." I asked him why he was doing that and he said, "Because I like it."

Having grown up with a sister and having a daughter, having a son sure is a new experience for me. lol

I totally agree with Kim, I had two girls before son came along and I swear they probably still couldn't find their nether regions with both hands. Then son comes along and I think he knew where it was at birth! Totally different breed of kid! Sometimes I feel like a new mommy instead of a seasoned mommy of three!

No kidding... couldnt find with both hands.. lolololol.... Sigh...
