Pee-pee drama

A friend of mine constantly moans about her 7 month old son’s package. I am always in giggles whenever she is changing his diapers or giving him a birth, cause she seizes the poor appendage and cries ‘Lord, how do you want this boy to impregnate his wife in future? I want grandchildren oo.
Then she later conciliates with ‘ Size doesn’t matter my boy. Don’t you fret’ like the boy knows there’s  a problem. In fact while she is going on and on, he is fondling his pinch of a penis and gurgling happily (why do little baby boys like playing with their pee pee?)
Anyways I thought she exaggerated (what do I know?!). But after the last weekend, I am worried too.
In case you are wondering, that blue thingy is a pee-pee teepee -
supposed to save mommy/daddy from getting peed on during diaper changes..smh
A friend and his 4 yr old son came visiting while I was bathing baby boy (mom was out and I love getting my hands on him any chance I get). Lil Johnny came to my side and watched as I massaged in Vaseline lotion on his trunk. He looked and looked, then with a puzzled frown asked ‘Aunty what is that? Pointing to my adopted son’s package!

Ehh how do you answer to this?! I didn’t want to say ‘penis’ cause I wasn’t sure what ‘politically correct’ nonbiological word the parents have taught him. Nor did I want to introduce him to a new word and spend the next 30 minutes answering curious penial questions.
So I threw back the answer at him ‘Come on Johnny. Baby is a boy. Isnt your own the same? He said, “No, it doesn’t look like mine, mine is bigger and longer”.

I burst into laughter.  

Nonsense!

Enemies!

I retold the conversation to Lil pee wee’s mom. Poor gal. Now she is even more worried. 

Who knows if penile elongation creams work? It should be more effective when the male is young shouldn’t it? Lol!

So just wondering..do you moms/dads out there worry about your son’s package/peepee?
What are the politically correct names for little boy’s penis?
Lastly, why do we need politically correct terms when a perfectly respectable biological term 'penis' exists?

  1. This is really funny, Ginger. I can't believe you did this post, I haven't stopped laughing.

    My 9month old son does play with his 'willy' when his nappy is being changed. My 3yr old did the same when he was younger as well. Baby boys do it as part of their development - they're merely discovering their body. Regarding the size, I would't even go there, I'll leave the ladies to deal with that question :)

    We speak Igbo to our children, so I can't help but call it 'amu'. I can't be bothered with any PC name.

  2. LMAO, i can't even imagine being concerned about such a thing. As if there aren't plenty of women in the world that have been impregnated by men who are anti-endowed lol. And at only a few months old...give the lil bugger some time to develop. He'll be fine lol.

  3. Funny story. Really though, the mother should relax about this before the child ends up having a complex before he even understands what's going on.

    I think pc terms are used because like you said, you don't know how much the parents have taught their child. Last thing you want is some parent being mad at you for introducing a topic they don't want to deal with. I do think it's better to talk about body parts and biology without shame or embarassment. That way, the penis is just another body part like an arm or a leg. I've seen parents do this and i was very impressed because then there is no big deal about it for the child.

  4. Well, you really can't compare a 4 year olds penis with that of a 7 month old baby. It's wayyyyy too early for this woman to be worried and even if she's worried, there's nothing she can do about the size. Besides, people need to learn that it's not the size of the penis that matters. It's what u can do with it ;)

    As for the politically correct thing to say besides penis which is the right anatomical name, pee-pee should suffice at this age. I know grown people who look at me crazy when i say penis and vagina so easily in conversation. Maybe it's because that's their right name?!!! I don't see the big deal. Hand, leg, penis, vagina....

    Ok bah bye!

  6. OMG, this is such a funny post. Do parents actually worry about size? I've never actually thought about that. As for name, penis should do.

    I think its way too early for mom to be worried like seriously we dont want baby to have a complex before he discover the use..

    As for PC, I just say the words oh maybe cos i am in the med field but when I am in public having convo with friends, we have a coded word..

  8. LOl Really funny

    We call penis 'ding-dong' in my house

    Regarding size........the size changes with puberty. I really dont think the mum should worry ....she will only transfer the worry onto the poor child as he grows older!

  14. Hmmm, I would have said she neednt worry, but I dont even know what the size of a baby's stuff should be like jare. I'll rather keep shut on this one

  15. I remember that I was surprised that my son's penis was as big as it was when he was born. He has bragged on numerous occasions (while drinking of course) that it still is. I doubt there is much to be concerned about with little boys. But if by the time they are 10 or 11, it is still very small, maybe it should be discussed with a doctor. They can give them hormone injections to make it enlarge I gather. I knew a man once and his erect penis was no more than an inch long. He should have had something done when he was a kid.

    All of the PC stuff makes me tired. A penis is a penis is a penis. Penis is a perfectly good word. So is vagina for that matter. (If you want to exchange those words with "pet" words when you are being intimate, go right ahead!)

  16. HA HA HA! This post is HYSTERICAL! I have two boys... my second has always been, ummm... gifted in that area. Well, of course I don't know if it continued as he got older... some things a mother does NOT want to know. But as a baby, HUGE. And then when he was older, I will never forget... he was at a physical at the pediatrician. He had nothing but his undies on. Of course the doctor had to check certain "parts." Once that was done the doctor (whom we have gone to forever) said, "OK son, put that thing away now, you are SCARING ME!" I laughed so hard I started to cry!

  17. Ah! I know your friend is worried but she is going to give her son a complex if she is not careful. Babies can tell when something is wrong and if she gets in the habit of saying it, she won't stop even when he starts to understand her.

    Anyway, Tot's is average. I try not to worry about it either in terms of performance or function. The men in his father's family need only look at a woman for her to be with child!

  18. @Naija4Life: You do NOT say that! LOL

  20. Very interesting and funny post....I think your friend should stop worrying about his penis for now. Haba! he is only 7 months old and like Dame sting said, at the end of the day, it is not in the size, but in the action. So, fret not!

  21. Hahahahhaahhahahahahaaaaa. This is a hilarious post. Your friend should free her son and let him grow up abeg. He is just a toddler na ehennn. LOL.
    This is my first time of seeing a pee-pee teepee. Na wa for this oyibo people ooo :-)

  22. The "teepee" is hysterical. I've never understood this paranoia men have about the size of their wanger. Yes. "wanger" -- a perfectly acceptable euphemism for penis. I once had a guy go to their barn with me and my horse "dropped" his. The moron actually said, "Boy. You must be hard to impress." Yeah. Because all women want a dick the size of a horse's to deal with.

  23. Very funny. Sometimes parents worry about the darnest things. She should worry as these things grow with age, just like breasts.My son calls it pee-pee though we tell him penis but that is what he can manage to say now.

  28. Parents shouldn't be worrying about their sons' pee-pee sizes o... Penises are in different structures and forms. There are two main size types though; there is one whose actually size is in its normal form with or without erection and there is this other one that comes into its full size during erection. Parents shouldn't really be disturbed at the earliest stage of their boys' pee-pee. The pee-pee is part of the body and as the body generally grows, the penis grows too.

    As for the name, penis is okay.
