Life in the Fish Bowl

welcome

Huh???


This morning we were sitting in the recliner in the basement, taking it easy and watching some Wonder Pets (Save the Bullfrog; Save the Poodle, just in case you were wondering.)

I notice that Punkin is playing with his junk, and I ask him what he is doing.

It's up. (And it certainly was.)

I'm always interested in what he is thinking and why he is doing things so I asked "What is that?"

It's an instrument.

What? Why is it an instrument?

Because I want to play it. Play my penis.

I was thinking of maybe trying the violin in a year or so, so this definitely puts a kink in my plans. What is it with boys? Hell, what is it with men? I knew they never out grew the fascination with their boy parts, but I never realized it started so early.

I think they years to come will not be boring. Not at all.

OMG

I see this in my future. Buddha told me the other night, "My p-man. I get to touch it."

Yeah, yeah, kid. It's yours forever. No one's gonna take it.

Ah yes...boys will be boys. My son has recently taken to talking about his "balls" a lot. Lovely.

An instrument...new one, at that stage at least.
Funny, very funny....and it is a man thing, they never get over the fascination with that part of their anatomy.

Not Afraid to Use It said...

That's funny. I have heard that having boys is a whole 'nother ball game. No pun intended.

I do have it on authority that as they get older to keep your eyes on the tub of Vaseline you keep in the bathroom. If the contents start rapidly disappearing, you know what they are up to. Again, no pun intended. ;)

Junebug said...

How amusing. What's up with guys? Pun intended!

Jenni said...

Ah yes, the joys of parenting boys. Rest assured, it's normal!

M said...

oh dear. thanks for sharing. i don't have kids so i never realized that kids started so early. good for you for discussing it with him and not making too much of it.

anyway, this helps me understand adult men a little better.

I sure am glad I swallowed my mouthful of drink before reading this in its entirety!

Bren said...

Yep, my little guy has started that too.

My2Suns said...

HA!!!!! That's all I can say...

Note to self: even when lurking at Blue Momma's never ever take a sip of tea while doing so!!!! I hope he...uh...finds his instrument of choice as he gets older. Something tells me this will always be his favorite though.

Alison said...

gotta love them boys!! they definitely keep us on our toes!!

Although I am finding myself understanding my husband more every day as I raise our son!!!

Steph said...

Oh my! Heehee! Is this what I get to look forward to? Gabe does the Al Bundy thing when sitting in a chair :(

Catwoman said...

Who knew the Wonderpets could be such a turn on to 3-year olds? Was it the Ming Ming the duck? Because I think she's sexy too.

Pam said...

The toy that never rolls away....

You women just don't appreciate the beauty of having your own joystick (I'm talking about one that doesn't need batteries).

I've got a boy and a girl. I'm not dreading the teen years anymore. I figure that by that time, I'll be in such a drunken stuper, it won't matter much!
