Jr. Peanut, the Princess, and I were hanging out on the Princess' queen sized bed playing with one of Jr. peanut's new toys.

We were playing and having fun. Then the Princess said to her brother "Ooohhh, you look tired baby brother." She proceeded to pull down her shirt and then said "here baby brother, you want my boobie?". She proceeded to try to feed him while I giggled.

Then she stopped and her shirt went back up. Then she turned to look at me.

She moved over to where I was, pulled down her shirt, and shoved her nipple toward my face. "You want my boobie Mommy?"

Aaaah! yuck! It's not pleasant having the mosquito bites shoved in your face.

I told her "No thank you. I'm not hungry. Maybe when you're older, you can nurse your own baby when you're older.

Kids are weird like that.

That's a little disturbing. And a natural progression?

Hahaha..Did you laugh in front of her? I don't think I would have been able to contain myself.

What you said was probably best.

Kids are freaking weird. :D

Ok, good now I don't feel so bad about what was happening in my house last night. I stepped out of the bathroom for a few minutes while the kids were in there and I heard all this giggling. I rushed in to see what was going on and J was squishing B's penis between her feet . They both thought it was sooo funny.
Of course I had to tell them that they probably should be doing that without making them feel like pervs.

Worker Mommy said...

Oops I guess I should have said they were in the bathtub . They've taken baths together since they were old enough to sit in the tub.

Oh and that last part was supposed to say "Of course I had to tell them that they probably shouldn't be doing that without making them feel like pervs. "

WM - that's such a hard topic to approach! We overheard SS say "Show me your penis again" we totally freaked out. Turns out, NB pulled his pants down thinking it was funny and THEN she said that. It wasn't as bad as what we'd thought, but COME ON...what are you supposed to do?

Even though all child psychologists would want to murder me for it, I think we should go the good Old Fashioned "Shame" route. haha, just kidding. But how DO you establish boundaries without making them feel like their body is 'wrong'? I'm lost!!

(Thank you for allowing my therapy session in your comments, cherann!)

Oh, The Joys said...
