It’s got to be something in the genetics.

While retracting Alex’s foreskin (oh, God the search terms) and bemoaning my fate of a life spent cleaning teeny penises (penii?), I noticed something that I can only attribute to his father’s side of the family.

He laughed.

Laughed.

Kept laughing.

Alex laughed the entire time I was cleaning the schmutz off of his penis.

I’m pretty sure this wasn’t covered in my copy of What To Expect When You’re Expecting.

  1. It’s still weird to take my daughter’s diaper off and find no penis there.

    I leave the schmutz cleaning to the husband. I don’t know nothing about the penii.

  2. Andria, I totally know what you mean. I have a couple of friends with baby girls, and I’m always shocked when I see their privates. Good for you for making your husband clean the penises. I only wish I could 🙂

    Chris, I did circumcise him, but for awhile (when they are babies) the foreskin is still there (because their penises are so teeny tiny. I think.).

  3. Shows what I know about babies. This is why I don’t collect them.

    But, damn. On behalf of any and all future girlfriends, I was about to thank you.

  4. Heh, heh. I’m sorry I’m laughing but I was just about to blog about my son’s love for his penis. Boys will be boys, and turn into men.

  5. Hehe, that sounds so familiar. Boys really do love those things. When my boys were younger, like 1 1/2 – 2 years old I was constantly telling them to put the stallion back in the corral.

  6. Yes, mine used to find it ‘amusing’ as well; me, not so much. When he was about Alex’s age and he’d just discovered it, he’d pull on it like he was trying to tear it off. I told E about it him playing with it and all and he said ‘get used to it, he’s going to be doing that for the rest of his life.’ The things you learn about boys and teeny penii!

  7. Babies DO get ball cheese, dude. And NO ONE EVER TELLS YOU THAT UNTIL YOU HAVE ONE. That should totally be one of those PSA “The More You Know” things on NBC or whatever station it is. I think my ex-boyfriend Vincent D’Ononfrio could be the actor.

  8. Becks, sometime remind me in person to tell you the “MORE PENIS” story.

    Also, Dean giggles like a fool when having his foreskin retracted for cleaning. It’s all funny to them.

    When my older nephew was around 3 my sister was trying to get him to stop playing with it all the time. In front of company, she said “Michael, stop playing with your penis”. He responded “Oh, that’s right. It’s only ok in my room by myself.” Better believe that’s coming up to roast him at his wedding…

  9. Alex hasn’t quite discovered that he can find his penis yet (thankyoulord), but I’m sure once he does, those dirty diapers are going to suck ass.

    And Sara, I’m guessing very little is as fun as playing with foreskin. According to Alex.
