Apologies in advance for the potty-talk!
Oh my goodness! So my almost 4 year old son has entered in to a new phase of extreme curiosity about body parts and functions, and he LOVES to talk about it. He is also a kid that loves attention, so you can imagine the combination. I'm sure some of you are laughing to yourselves right now in commiseration or remembering your own funny stories.. (I hope you'll share)!
Anyway, he loves to tell females that they are girls and says he's sorry they are not lucky and don't have pee-pees. He also likes to inform them that the pee somewhere else... I tell him that I think they already know. I do my best to parent and teach him what is appropriate without giving the situation too much attention, but honestly I'm having trouble keeping a straight face these days!
My best friend (who doesn't have kids yet and is an only child like me) is visiting this weekend. Imagine her shock when last night at the dinner table when my son tells her that he's a boy and has a pee-pee, asks her if she wants to see his pee-wee, and before anyone can say a thing proceeds to pull down his pants...
Here's to hoping this phase passes really quickly! Any similar stories? Any advice??
Sorry again for the potty talk! Happy Sunday!!
