Gremlin has a wee-wee.
He’ll be 5 in a couple of weeks and yet every morning he greets me with his wee-wee in hand.
For all you pervs…it’s a blanket!
Somewhere in his funny little 1-year-old mind, blanket sounded like wee-wee. And it stuck. How could it NOT! He would say:
“I pay wif my wee-wee, mom!”
“My wee-wee is warm and soft.” *rolling eyes*
He doesn’t have to have it with him everywhere, just when he sleeps and first wakes up. How harmless is that, right?
I’ve been talking with Gremlin about his wee-wee. I keep telling him that big boy Kindergartners do not have wee-wees. He just looks at me with his devilish grin and wraps his wee-wee around his head.
He had gotten a hole in it and ripped it bigger. I thought this was my opportunity to put “poor little wee-wee away before he gets worse”, but then Stacey came to the “rescue” and sowed that hole right up. Gremlin calls her his Wee-Wee Saver! (Bet you never thought you’d be called that, huh Gidge!)
*He just now came in and said, “I’ll think I’ll just go ahead and keep wee-wee.” I told him again that big boys don’t have wee-wees….maybe you should just think about it some more. “I think-ed about it and it’s stayin in my hands.” Well, alrighty then!*
To be honest, since he doesn’t carry it around with him everywhere I haven’t made that big of a deal, but he tells people that he sleeps with his wee-wee. Talk about some funny looks! We have to quickly mention that it’s a blanket. Well, that’s all great and fine as long as we’re there. Apparently he’s been talking about his wee-wee at school. The teachers keep telling him to stop talking about his wee-wee. HA!
My mum’s idea is to cut the blanket down little bit by little bit until the blanket is a piece of nothing, but I really don’t want to cut the blanket up. I want to store it for when he’s an adult. (Why? I don’t know…just seems like the thing to do.)
I remember quite clearly telling my roommate in college that I would never be one of those parents who’s child has a “blankie”. Because, of course I had all the answers then!
On that note: here I am with a blankie child wondering – how have you guys dealt with it? Or do you still have a wee-wee yourself? 😛
