he doesn't know the half of it

The boys have been going through a phase where they can't seem to go two minutes without doing a little penis tugging through their shorts. Our policy has been to ask them if they need to go to the bathroom, and if they say no, to tell them to get their hands out of their crotches.

They're struggling with this restriction.

Today, Levi came up to me with his hand in the usual location and whined, "Mommy, my body makes me do this! All day long!" And then he collapsed on the floor in a heap.

I felt bad for the little guy. Here we are, trying to get him to conform to social norms so the world can be spared this obscene gesture. But he is the victim in all of this, a slave to his own incessant urges.

we so have the same problem going on over here. "Mommy, I don't meed to go to the bathroom! I'm just touching my penis!"
