Then I received this email from a friend. Names have been changed to protect the innocent
True story - happened last night.
B (my five year old) is in the shower and says "Oh my gosh, my balls are getting smaller". I'm hoping against hope he isn't talking about his "balls" but some toy he has in the shower. And I say, "What honey?" And he replies, "My balls, you know my nuts (the stuff they learn at school is amazing), are getting smaller". With the straightest mom face, I can muster, I say, "that's what happens when boys get cold". His solution -fill up a cup with hot water and pour it over his "balls" to see if they get bigger. To his disappointment, it didn't work. I then had to explain that once he dried off and put on his PJ's things would go back their "normal size". I'm not ready for boys....
Leaving you with me being mothered.
