Big Son's Shower.....





As a mother, there are times when the things our children do or say is GREAT fodder for later blackmail in their lives. I know as a mother we tend to think that the things our kids do are funny and sometimes share things that are probably not going to be funny to anyone else - so comes this post.....

Big Son is a VERY modest, almost prudish about his body. He loves to show that he is now getting 'muscles' and is needing deodorant. But, does not like to be seen naked, in his shorts, or in a compromised position, like on the toilet. I am always in amazement at the male species, which is probably why I am pregnant again - but that’s a different post. That being said, I LOVE to see how much my boys grow in such short amounts of time. Big Son has gotten so tall and lanky, with legs that resemble that of a very thin chicken. Big Son is always saying that he is growing up, getting bigger and is starting - only starting - to want to do things for himself and trust me that is completely selective! He loves to be taken care of still and at times is adamant that he does not want to grow up. Tonight was a night that he wanted to 'do his own shower'. I always wash the boys hair and make sure that the major cracks, crevices, 'appendages' and nails are clean. Big Son decided that he only wanted help with his hair and he wanted to be grown up tonight. Needless to say I was a bit skeptical about this only because his attention span is that of a gold fish on speed....... non-existent. As he was showering I stood outside the door to see if I could hear signs of actual washing and not playing. As I stood there, I realized he was singing a little tune to himself - but I was not sure what it was. After about 15 seconds of close listening this is what I heard..... please be prepared....


Big Son - Washin' my wiener, washin' my wiener, washin my wiener till it shines......

Yeh, I know that I died laughing , was revived and died again. Milk Man of course was wondering why I had fell to the ground in fits of laughter and came to listen for himself - he was not surprised by this and said "We all sing little songs like that'........ So there is proof that the weird things that men do, start when they are little boys - Washin their wiener......

Hilarious, no kidding!

I kept extensive "baby books" when my two boys were young, and often wrote down little anecdotes like this. At the time, I thought I'd always remember them.

Now, when my sons pull out their baby books (which are overstuffed binders now) and read many of these funny little stories about things they said and did, I am so thankful I wrote them down. Because I have absolutely no memory of them. None. Nada.

Write down the precious moments, don't trust your memory.

My kids love their books, and so do I. They are 15 and 20 years old now, and those old books just get more magical with each reading.

Peggy - I am so glad you were tickled by it! The Milk Man laughed when he read that you had your hubby read it. His words - "He'll know what I mean" sheeesh.. LOL

Mrs. M... Do I need to take care of your laundry bill? :) sorry - When your boys start that, I expect to be the second to know behind hubby!! LOL

KatieKate - I am TERRIBLE about writing things down and I know that i will feel bad when I dont remember. I have made a new promise to myself now that I am no longer working full time and trying to help run a farm, I am going to make sure that I make the time to make a book! :)

Thank you all so much for stopping by, I LOVE LOVE LOVE the company - female variety of course! LOL

Oh my goodness, I laughed so hard! And it is true, it's starts from boyhood!

My 3 year old son came down from the bathroom the other day, patting himself and singing "This is my penis, this is my penis." Over and over again. It was like he was announcing it to the world in case anyone needed clarification.

Men are an interesting breed, and so lyrical! LOL
