We would sit for hours playing and putting makeup on each other. Oftentimes, you could find us picking apple blossoms and tulips while skipping through the forest in our matching outfits.
None of this stopped me from wanting a son. In fact, I was so curious about raising a boy, I longed for one—really longed for one and was blessed with two (as well as a sweet girl smack dab in the middle).
I quickly learned that I knew nothing about raising boys, and especially nothing about penises.
I have stumbled upon some very startling things I want to share with you because nobody shared them with me. If they had, there would have been fewer calls to my pediatrician and less panic attacks. Things like:
1. They Might Get an Erection Very Early On
At like, 2 weeks old. This may shock and horrify you, but it is normal. You do not need to worry; there is nothing wrong. It does not mean they will have erectile dysfunction at a young age because they had too many erections very early in life (not that I asked).
However, it does make it easier for them to pee in their eye during a diaper change, so you are going to want to move fast.
2. If Something Gets Wrapped Around It, It May Hurt
Before they can talk and tell you what is wrong, it is heart-wrenching to see your child in pain. If your sweet boy is bent over, fussy, or pointing to his tummy or private area, check the penis, especially before rushing him to the emergency room because you think he has a roaring case of appendicitis. It is a possibility that something is wrapped around it. That something is usually a human hair wound so tightly around the appendage, you will wonder how in the hell you will get it off. Just grab your magnifying glass and tweezers, and you should do just fine.
