General chatter - Do little boys REALLY do this!?! LOL topic

Oh the mortification.....but I have to talk to someone about this! So my darling son, seven years old, smart as a whip, usually really well behaved and an excellent student, brought home a progress report the other day. It details the child's behavior day-to-day, if they're good they get a stamp, if they misbehave or talk too much they don't. Well Robert did not get a stamp one of his days because, ARE YOU READY FOR IT, he and three of his buddies were in the bathroom and wanted to see who could PEE the furthest, so they all just turned around and shot it out ALL OVER THE FLOOR! :o :o :o

Oh the embarrassment! Well so my SIL says to me, Oh little boys do that kind of thing all the time. Something about them just being obsessed with their little thingys. And really the teacher didn't make a big deal out of it, she didn't even call me-don't you think THAT one should have been called?!

Yes I do realize the irony of posting this topic near to Nelie's topic wondering if not wanting children is normal. I was hoping some of you with boys could relate or had some similar stories.

"Something about them just being obsessed with their little thingys"

. . . seems to be an obsession they never outgrow. :D

Oh hilarious. Actually it doesn't surprise me that the teachers didn't think it worrisome (maybe if they were a few years older it would warrant more attention) but I think it's one of those cases where perfectly "normal" for the kid is mortifying for the parent.

I remember when my son was about 3(now he is 19). We own a campground.
I could see this lady laughing in her car while I checked someone else in.
When she came in she asked me if that was my son. I said yes. She then said it looks like he is drawing his name while he was peeing. I was horrified that he was outside doing that, she though it was funny. That is boys for you. If he had done that inside I would of punished him.

I have two boys, not that they've done that exactly but many things in the same ball park. Obviously it's something relatively "normal" or the teacher would have called you. I'm like you, I would have wanted to be called but their not calling tells you they didn't think it was a big deal, and you shouldn't get too worried about it. Another occasion to have a little "keep your private parts to yourself" talk. Three months after summer camp last year my son informs me kids were laughing at him because he was dropping his pants to pee -- I had never thought to teach him to use the "flap" on his underwear to pee, instead of dropping it all!! You know, mom's just wouldn't think of all the crazy things related to being a boy!!!

Yeah, well, my DS at about that age took some poloroid shots of "himself" and distributed them to his friends. I got called into the principal's office after the friends took them home and showed their parents.

Yeah, my son the pornographer. YIKES!!! Thankfully, it was a one time deal!

Thank God I received a girl! But this doesnt seem at all worrisome to me given his young age.

It is definitely normal behavior. My son (now 21) and my DH both admit to having had peeing contests when they were very young. Yep, once they found "it" they never left it alone. LOL

Allison, my sisters' DD took a Playgirl magazine to kindergarten with her and shared it with all her friends. When my sis was called to the school and her DD was asked by the principal "where did you get this?" She replied "it's mommies". My sister about died of embarassment. LOL

My brother was about 5 or 6 and his room had a peculiar funk to it, we just couldn't quite figure out what it was. Finally mom got sick of it and went up there and started doing some major cleaning, and what did she find under the bed?! Oh, my bother's nerf crossbow squirt gun - filled with pee that he had been saving... for what we do not know...

Boys are yucky. it comes with the territory. I live with two grown boys, and they are still yucky.

Peeing for distance is one of the great benefits of being male. I'd say it's completely normal (although standard protocal would be to see who could back away furthest from the urinal rather than to turn around and pee on the floor).

I have one of each and they both are trying, just in different ways. My son did the whole distance pee thing, my DD kept trying to pee standing up. I couldn't get mad at her cause I did the same thing. Girls also get fixated on ta-tas and that gets to be quite a mess, why aren't mine as big as Sally's, why are mine bigger than Jane's, why CAN'T I get padded bras, I don't want a bra from Target I want my stuff from Victoria's Secret, it just goes on and on and just when you get sick of that, here they come wanting to know why you won't buy them thong underwear!

Last summer, my husband and I were having coffee out on our raised deck. We looked over, to see our neighbor's six-year-old boy taking a pee off of HIS raised deck (we both have walk-out basements, so the decks are off the main floor, which is a second floor above ground level!). He was ENTHRALLED with the process, and was clearly trying to pee as far away as possible.
My hubby said "We SEE you!". After which our little neighbor turned bright red, packed it away, and ran inside.
We didn't tell the parents about this, as hey, boys will be boys, but we haven't seen that behavior since!!!

The most mortifying thing my son did is now a HUGE joke for the family. He had just transferred into a new school, with computers at every desk and internet access. Since the facility was new they hadn't installed all the firewalls and since my son was new (he started the year late) he hadn't made any friends. Sitting there bored, he decided to see what would happen if he typed B*TCH in between www and .com. Of course a porn site popped up and when he went to close it, well the pop-ups got 'em. The principal DID call me on that one and I was SO humiliated. We had worked so hard to get him in and he did this on his third day at school.

New age boys will be new age boys I guess.

LOL last week my food coop was doing meal exchange at my house and one of the little boys just pulled down his pants and went in my front lawn. The bad part was trying to keep the other kids from PLAYING in that part of the yard.

ROFL! I've been explaining to my hubby, father of one, what we're liable to face later on. He doesn't believe me on some of it. I've raised one daughter though, so know how it goes. Yet hubby, being a boy once himself...long long ago in a land far far away...When I read this to him, his only word was...

SWORD FIGHT! :D :D :D

All I can say is A LOT of us guys just can't leave it alone! and we learn to "experience" it at an early age! For example ~

Last year Angie came home, from teaching her 6th grade class, just busting up. I guess a group of 6th graders were in the middle of the school yard, in a circle, "sizing" up :D . Usually it's the BIG guys that start it! :lol:

Around our house with me, my son, my nephew, brothers and brother in law hanging out...someone always has their hands down their pants. Angie is always yelling at us "Just ONCE I want to see ALL of your hands!!"

I remember staying home from school in 6th grade..."cough-cough" ;) to sneak peeks at dad's Playboys. He worked all day and mom worked the school cafeteria cash register...had a "free" 3 hours! :dizzy:

My friend got called to his son's principal a few years ago, seems his 5th grader got caught with dad's Playboy...but blamed it on another boy...who's parents showed up too! Was he ever embarassed!

When my son was about 3 and a half he went with me to check on a job. Now the street we had to go on is wide and a little hilly, we used to "race" up and down it from time to time when we were younger 'cause you could get a little air-borne without going to fast. Well, I was taking it safe...but a little quick...hit the one rise in the road where the bottom drops out, my son says to me "Whoa daddy, my weiner popped out!" I just smiled and said "Mine too." My son is almost 26 now, when I tell the story he just says that the hill still does it to him!

I guess the point I am trying to make is to us guys it's normal...and you gals just wouldn't understand!

BUT ~ I think the teacher NOT making a big deal about it was a good thing ~ BUT, I think she should have told the parents right away!

When I was 7, my cats stopped using the litter pan and we couldn't figure out why. Turns out my brother and his best friend, both aged 5, were peeing in the litter pan.

Once the boys were evicted, the cats went back to the litter pan.

So it could be worse!

My son when he was 13 told me one night "I have a date tonite". I replied to him that he wasn't old enough to date. He then said it's with "Palmela and her 5 friends". I didn't know what he was talking about but my DH cracked up and explained it to me later. LOL. (not exactly something a mother wants to know).

LMAO a boy and his penis...

hubby's mom once caught him, his younger brother and a neighbor kid up on their roof trying to see who could pee the farthest...

my hubby was a huge troublemaker as a kid though, this is one of the least disturbing things he did. my brother was also always into everything...

hehehe palmela and her five friends... boys are gross.

My son (age 7 at the time) came home one day and told me that friend of his (age 8) had a condom that he had stolen from someone else. He was curious to know what it looked like because of course, his friends' was in the package. I got one out and showed it to DS, and also unrolled it. He looked at it with huge eyes and said "I'll NEVER be able to fit one of those."

It took every muscle I had not to burst out laughing.

Tiki, that would have been hard not to laugh. LOL. I can still remember going with my son to get his first ever Jock Strap and Cup for 4 th grade football. He just looked at it and said "that won't even cover the top of it". LOL, he's always been very PROUD.

"Boys are born with their best friend". LOL, that pretty much sums it up.

Last year I was working in a kindergarten class... and a table of boys decided to compare sizes-there were 4 or 5 of them taking turns looking under the table at each other... thankfully, no little girls were at the table to get in on it... boy...can you imagine explaining that one to parents?? Little Susie goes home from school and says "Johnny's ___________ is bigger than Joe's, Bobby's and Mark's?? LOL

My daughter developed early. So at 7, she runs up to the pastor in the sanctuary, lifts up her shirt and yells out "Look at my new booby thang!" I'm just awaiting the day my son runs up and pulls down his pants and says "Look at my new cup!" :D :D :D

I work with a majority of all men and they have all told me about a co-worker who still drops his pants to pee! They say its quite a site to walk into the mens room and see a bare bottom staring at them in the mirror! lol.
