Boys and their preoccupation with size

Boy Terror just told his father and me that he has an elephant trunk. "Here! On mine penis! It's a trunk!" How do I break the news to him?!

My almost 4 year old is still amazed when his penis 'grows' when he sometimes urinates.
"Wook at my big pee-nis!"

My boy is not circumcized, and at one point, the foreskin was a bit tight. The solution? Well, turns out that the thing naturally loosens with the normal ebb and flow of nature, and what we needed to do was ensure more ebbing and flowing. Preferably during the bath, when things would get cleaned out. If you get my drift.

Picture momma teaching her three-year-old that masturbation is a normal part of taking the nightly bath. He called it "making my nee-nips stiff".

Indeed. Heh.

Well given a lot of mens' preoccupation regarding 'size'......how nice that Boy Terror can begin his journey into manhood with the self confidence of having 'an elephant trunk'!!!

Once, when we had company, one of the boys (I have 4) came in with his shirt pulled up and his finger in his navel, wiggling it around rather forcefully. He announced loudly "Hey! When I do this it makes my penis jump!" He was 6 or so at the time. Now he's 15 and we remind him. Life is good.
