Oh Good Lord.
Quick question here.
So, we are sitting down to dinner, and Monkey takes off down the hall towards the bathroom and insists one of us come along. The Mr goes with, leaving me to eat in peace.
The Mr is instructed by his 4yo dictator to wait outside the bathroom because he needs privacy.
Because those who can’t give, demand.
And soon I hear the adorable command of “WIPE MY BUTT” coming down the hall…. mutter mutter mutter… handwashing.
Apparently, the Mr decided to take this time to also use the facilities because the next thing I hear is “Wow! That’s a big pee-pee! Can I touch it?”
I know this is a fairly common situation. My Mr heard pretty much the same conversation once in a public bathroom stall. We had a good laugh over that.
We are not laughing now.
Seriously. How do you tell a four year old that it’s not OK to comment on or touch someone else’s pee-pee without making body image and awareness an issue. We are fairly liberal with the nudity around here. We still have a family bed. We have worked at being open an honest… but wow. What now?
