Mummy can you scratch my bum? 20

We had a pretty quiet weekend consisting of football practice and then a football party for the boys on Saturday and a Sunday which mainly included lots of comfort food and cuddles, which was fine by me.

One of the plus point of buying the boys DSi’s for Christmas is that me and MadDad get a lie in on a weekend as the boys tend not to wake us at silly o clock.  So this morning we were both lounging in bed and the boys came in for a cuddles with the DSi’s and we had a lazy, snugly morning.

All was peaceful until Mini asked me to scratch his bum.  to which I told him to do it himself, when he responded with “no Mummy it makes my finger smell”.  That was it I couldn’t stop laughing for about 10 minutes.

Then when the boys were in the bath Sunday afternoon, there was lots of giggling as I got out their PJ’s.  I returned only to be told they had been sucking tongues!

Someone please tell me this is normal?

    Sounds like you all had a lovely weekend, children come out with some crackers don’t they, I could write a book on some of the one liners my boys have said over the years.

    I instantly thought oh no sucking tongues is not something my boys ever did. Then it all came back to me – when I was a child me and my sisters and brother did this I recall…very strange I know. Don’t think you have anything to worry about we all turned out OK and it left us with no permanent damage lol 🙂

    1. Bum scratching is quite normal
    2. Sniffing your finger afterwards is normal but, a bit distasteful.
    3. Sucking your brothers tongue is about as far away from normal as you can get!

    Hope that helps.

    It’s all just a bit of innocent fun to kids. They don’t see it in the same way as we do.

    My Little Miss Bubbly scratches herself (not her bum…you get the picture) and then sniffs it because it “smells nice”. Ooh yuck! But honestly, what are you going to do?

    She lunges at me sometimes to give me a big pash. I tell her that’s not appropriate. But why is it okay for Mummy and Mr Clooney to do this but not Mummy and Little Miss Bubbly. Oh the world’s a confusing place when you’re young!

    Roll with it. It’s who they’re sucking tongues with when they’re older that you really need to keep an eye on! Until then, relax.

    Is it also normal for your nearly-three-year-old never to want to wear clothes, even in Januray. Or sleep anywhere other than the floor? *looks hopefully with fingers crossed*. Kids- such fun!

    This has made me laugh and induce a huge coughing fit! (I have some viral thing going on, boo).

    The things kiddies say. Question is, did you oblige once you had stopped laughing? 🙂

    The tongue thing, I have no idea? But I have never been normal so I’m probably not the best one to judge others!

    Hilarious!! Glad to hear that I’m not the only one with a lazy child ….. haven’t been asked to scratch bums yet though! Great you’re keeping a record of this, you can remind your kids of all these funny things when they’re older!!!

    Oh god… BOYS! What are they like eh! I’ve given up bothering about Zack farting on me these days… it seems it’s just what they do! LOL

    No idea how I got here but thought is was important to say that this page must be deleted/removed/hidden when these guys are between 12 and 21, they will get mercilessly hassled if one of their peers finds this page during those ages.
