Having three boys can certainly have it’s challenges but for the most part for me it keeps life interesting and fun.
One day I got a call from the school nurse regarding one of my children. His teacher had informed the nurse that my son had kept touching himself all morning in class. It was unlike my son so the teacher decided it was best to notify the nurse. Of course then the nurse called me in the event that something was going on, perhaps a rash. I told her I did not notice anything because I had seen him bathe that morning while reading to him in the tub but then went on to say I would check since of course I really wasn’t focusing in on that area. I did say maybe his bathing suit was bothering him because he had a double layer on since all three of my boys had swim practice directly after school. We then hung up.
Thirty seconds after the nurses phonecall the phone rings again. It was Michaela asking me to meet her at the beach with a new bathing suit for my son. Michaela had picked up the boys from school that day. She said as soon as my son got in the car he said, “I don’t know if my brother’s or one of the friends who slept over last night put gum down my pants but someone did.” He hadn’t realized it until he had gotten to school and of course this wasn’t something a boy would want to share with their teacher or school nurse. Thank God it had been a half day! Anyway I ran down to the beach and let him change but the gum was still stuck on him and he was red and raw. POOR CHILD! I then took him home and my husband got out the baby oil to get the remnants of the gum off our sons testicles and penis. I figured this was certainly a job for Daddy to take care of. At one point I told my son to stop being so cranky as his Dad was trying to clean him up. He said, “HOW
WOULD YOU LIKE IT IF YOUR PENIS AND BALLS WERE STUCK IN GUM ALL DAY?”
Anyway that is the true meaning of gumballs. Got to love having boys!
