Anyway, Uncle of the blog Say Uncle offered this story about his four-year old son, who had a question about his genitalia:
Got Junior out of the shower and then put The Second in the tub. I was sitting around when my wife walks in and says: You need to talk to your son. He has a question about his balls.
I sat there for a moment pondering what exactly a four year old could ask about his junk. And I settled on things like: What are they for? Why are they fun to play with? Why does it hurt when I get hit in them?
You know, typical ball stuff. Because, frankly, I had no idea what he was about to ask.
I walk in to the bathroom and he’s in the tub checking himself out. And I say Your mom said you had a question about your dudes?
I won't spoil the rest. But Uncle closes with this salient fact about parenting:
With kids, you mentally prepare for something, and it never goes the way you prepare for.
