Binky Monster no more...Winky monster oh no!

Well our sweet Will has now accomplished the task of holding his own binky in his mouth and now likes to chew on the nipple of it. We leave several binkys in his crib for him at night and you can hear him playing with all of them, it is the funniest thing. So thank goodness the Binky Monster is gone!

But now there is a new monster in town, now known as the Winky Monster. Yes, you heard me right. I am hoping that I am not the only mom who is experiencing this, maybe the only mom blogging about it. Over the weekend, Will was in the bath in his bath seat, just chillin', when all of a sudden I saw him put his hand down in that area! Then he starts laughing about it! So I remove his hand and try and entertain him with his bath toys and then he puts both hands down there! Then laughs again! Now I think that it has become a game because when I remove is hands he is laughing and then he just goes right back to putting his hands down there. The other day I was changing his diaper, and he decides he is going to stick his hands down there and play. I moved his hands and he played the same game again. He thinks it is funny!
Every time he is in the bath he is doing it and the poor thing is getting red! I have had to put ointment on it because of it. So... please tell me that I am not the only mom that this is happening to. Can you believe this?!

Lol! Welcome to the "down there" club :) Bella has been doing this for awhile. But it's only with diaper changes. I am hoping this is just a phase...

It is very normal, esp. for boys to "check" themselves out and do a little exploring. Don't worry, they can't hurt themselves and it's pretty natural for them. Leah just started doing it too - putting her hand down while I am changing her diaper. She looks at me as if to say "hhhmmm, so that's where I pee from". LOL!!

HAHA! Oh no! Had to happen sometime, I guess. If he sticks the remote control in his pants, you know you've got a REAL early bloomer.

Welcome to parenting a boy (although reading about parents of girls experiencing the same thing...eep!). It's normal. People were shocked when I told my son that it was his "penis". I was like, "What!? You call a nose a nose and an arm an arm, why wouldn't you call a penis by it's real name?" I'm all about no shame... (by here of POW)

Yep, that's life when you parent boys. Welcome to the club!

In fact in the bath (we bath our boys together) our youngest (aged 2) will try grab his brothers (age 3) every chance he gets.

His brother is not so happy about it.

I see it happen all day every day at my job. I'm constantly asking kids if they have to pee...they rarely do!

Yep, girls do it, too. Just like finding their hands or their feet. It's just covered up most of the time.

I just tell our daughter that's where the pee comes from. And she says "pee pee?" Works for me!
