  1. Isn’t it funny how children wake up to their bodies, and I bet it was a trip to be born fifty years ago when parents routinely made their children feel ashamed when it happened. Alex, the other day came running into the bedroom, yelling a worried “MAAAA MMA!” Worried, I asked him what was wrong, and he said “my penis won’t sit back down, and I’m scared it pulled a muscle in it’s back!” I said,supressing my giggle (because it was a very REAL concern for him) “It’ll go down in a minute- it’s normal in the morning for boys” He looked at me like I was out of my tree and said “MOM, girls don’t even have penises.” Then after a second, he sighed, “Phew, it’s squishy again…I have to go pee in the potty!” As he pattered back down the hall, I gave myself a mental pat on the back, because the same interaction would have probably sent my Grandmother into a fit of some sort. And you should pat your own self on the back (or get Andrew to do it), because you did great! You’re such a good mother.
