Shower-time Fun?

After two trips to Philadelphia in a 10 day period, my house and my children were a mess. The house could wait but my toddler hadn't had a bath in over a week and I think my baby had been due for a wash before we even left. I gave the toddler a bath and then took the baby in the shower with me. His boy bits needed some extra attention, and I had to rearrange them a few times to get to all the nooks and crannies. That's when I noticed he was grinning at me. I smiled back, but was disconcerted all the same. I don't remember my daughter doing this. So is it a boy thing? Am I over-thinking this? I'm wary of the pee fountain so diaper changes are VERY quick. But it's gotta get cleaned up some time. I just don't know if I can do it if he's there smiling at me like that, LOL. Most of you guys have boys. Do you have any advice for me on this?

LOL! I've had the same problem with my second boy. From the time he was very little he would smile and now he laughs and says it tickles. My oldest boy goes pee and sometimes will stand there shaking of that last little bit of pee for so long that he makes himself big. :) Boys!

My his jewels. Everynight he falls asleep with his hand down his pants. (I don't think things change much as they get older) My favorite is when he walks in my room in the morning and it's totally sticking straight out under his jammies and he points to it and says..."mom, it's doing it again!" I think it's funny and totally normal...

Try not to smile.
Just give up now.
Remember my boys words:
"It's coooming ouuut of the gaaraaggee..."
"Look Mom, I can make it go up!" (seriously!)
"I'm just playing with my penis..."
"Mom, it won't go down"

It's clear, if he's smiling at you already, he's going to be, um, fond, of his jewels. So just steel yourself and pretend to mostly not notice.

...and be thankful he doesn't have a brother to make Xs with in the toilet with their pee streams....
