Look, I just don’t understand boy anatomy sometimes. Bode is constantly saying to me in the morning, “My penis is getting so big, Mommy!”
What the hell am I supposed to say to that?
“Good job, kiddo!”
“I see that!”
“I’m so proud of you!”
“Keep it up, buddy!”
Seriously. Am I supposed to look at it or not? If I look at it, it’s weird. If I don’t, he gets upset and won’t let it go.
And, what’s that all about anyway? I don’t even get morning wood. What is it even? I have no idea. I’m a girl. I’m sure this is one of those things that most women know for some reason, I just don’t. Ok?
It can’t be sexual; he’s FOUR.
If I had to guess, I would think it’s just what happens when boys wake up and they have to pee after sleeping all night. But, then when I think about it, why wouldn’t that happen during the day when they have to pee?
So, what the heck causes it? I think it’s time for me to figure this one out. I’ve got two sons. I just can’t believe I’ve gotten to this point in my life and I, literally, have no idea what it is.
