JL and I have noticed that NHL is suddenly fascinated with his own body. Since I’m home with him lately I’ve seen him exploring a lot.
On Thursday he was sitting with me on the couch and his hand went to his crotch. I knew it was my chance. So we had a little chat:
Me – “NHL please take your hands off of your penis. It’s ok for you to touch, but you should not do that when there are other people around. If you want to do that, your bedroom or the bathroom are good places to go.”
NHL – “Ok mommy.
About 5-10 minutes go by and NHL get up and heads out of the room.
Me – “NHL where are you going?”
NHL – “To the bathroom. I want to touch my penis!”
I had to put every ounce of energy into biting my tongue not to laugh. The little turkey was listening and showing me.
Oh and I’ll spare you all what my mother’s comment was later on when she heard the story from my father. Let’s just say it was something I didn’t want to think of my mother talking about.
