Little Hans(el)

Umm... Mommy, I can see your bra.
I straighten out his blanket and settle in next to him for our shoulder-to-shoulder nightly chat.
"It's OK honey. It's no big deal."
Umm... Mommy? You might want to button your top button 'cuz I can see your bra.
He averts his eyes and he continues his protests.
"Hansel, it's OK. I'm your Mom."
Well, Mommy ... sometimes when I see people's underwear or bras my penis sticks straight up. And that's kinda a bit of a problem.


I quickly search through my repository of parenting wisdom.
This is one of those special teaching moments that we all love SO much as parents. 
But all I could do was think of how I had JUST recently showered with Hansel and OHMYGOD did he have an erection the entire time and I didn't notice?!?!?!?!?!?


The response I came up with...?
I *giggled* people!
Like a school girl.
And then exclaimed "REALLY?!?!?!?!?!?!"
He *giggled*.
Then we both *giggled*.

Hello, Dr. Freud. Nice to meet you. Loved your theories. They've prepared me well, as you can PLAINLY SEE.

Behold my mad parenting skillz.

Ah, something I have to look forward to with my son some day, I see. Never encountered this with any of my three girls! (hehe)

That's so funny. :) So glad the little guy felt comfortable enough with you to spill the beans on his 'moment'(s).

I probably would have just smiled awkwardly while yelling for his dad,

"Dex!!! A little help please!"

Which would of course freak him out and make him feel like he had just said something horribly wrong.

I think you handled that quite well!

I just realized who you are. I am a fan.

Heh-Heh. We had our "moment" at the breakfast table. So, now I make an effort to cover up better.

On a related note, while watching a buxom contestant on American Idol...

He: I hope that girl wins.
Me: Why, does she have a nice voice?
He: No, she could use the money, 'cuz her dress is broken.
