Yesterday I came home from work to find my oldest son sleeping on my couch wearing nothing but his underwear. Now as a mother you know that it's natural that your children will grow up and become men and certain parts of their body's will grow too.
You know it, but you don't want to see it..
So there he is in his "tightey whiteys" sprawled on his back - leaving NOTHING to the imagination. I was horrified!! I woke him up and told him if he wants to sleep in his underwear or even in his birthday suite he is to please do so in his bedroom.
That night he told his father that he came home from school and slept all day - I said, "ja, but not before he stripped down to just about nothing". His dad also told him it was not the right thing to do and that it is OK to go without a shirt - but not to walk around in his undies like that.
You see, I put it down to vanity. He schemes he is just the best looking thing around. he spends HOURS in front of the mirror - even if he wakes up in the middle of the night to go pee he will go to the other bathroom to check his hair. Huh???
I have asked him to please put a shirt on if we have company or if one of my girlfriends come to visit too - it just shows good manners. he even reckons his teeth are more important than his eyes and refuses to wear glasses or even have his eyes checked - "but we must fix his teeth as they are important".
OMW!!! Can you be more vain than that? Can you be more in love with yourself? He won't play any sport at school because he plays soccer for an outside club and reckons the school begs him to do athletics every year... I think not.
He wouldn't go and get his school books when they were ready on the Saturday before school started because he had a zit on his chin - PALEEEEZ. I can't wait for him to "grow up" - but I have a feeling it will take a bit longer than I am hoping.
