I have 3 boys of my own. Currently, I have a totally of 7 boys playing in the backyard. They are a collection of my own children, school friends, and neighborhood buddies. I am sitting here on my couch watching them. I am convinced that little boys are not very self preserving when it comes to their choices. Anyone else wonder how the male species survives childhood? Good grief.
all the time... and sometimes it doesn't get better with age. Hubby loves to ride his quad (without a helmet), walk through our woods (without heavy boots) and carve wood...using very sharp carving knives.
We used to let our kids have lots of naked time when they were babies. One day my son got ahold of an empty water bottle from the coffee table. He proceeded to put his penis in and out of the bottle with lots of delight. It was crazy. The penis infatuation begins so early.
I have 2 boys now. One is 6 years old and other one is 6 weeks old. My MIL had 3 boys. The stories she tells. My oldest hates clothes. He strips to his underwear all the time. He also hates socks and will often sneak out for school without socks. He has also worn pj pants underneath his jeans to school. He announced it to his entire class. The 6 year old also thinks his baby brother should be dressed as a superhero everyday and I find him putting a mask on his brother, trying to get him to hold a lightsaber.
He can be very sweet though and he is very caring.
The naked thing is NOT limited to boys. Hahaha! We have a privacy fence..so our rule is the back yard can be all natural, but you MUST wear underwear if you are going to go into the front yard for any reason.
I had a friend who once had to take her 5 year old to the er with a broken arm. When asked how it happened, he said "it was Mommy's fault. She broke my arm." Police and CPS were there in 30 minutes. They started to interview the boy without his mom and came out laughing 10 minutes later.
His mom gave him a spiderman shirt but not pants for bedtime. He decided to leap off his top bunk and stick to the wall. Apparently because she gave superman pants, which are the same colors, she messed up his ability to stick to the wall.
