Everybody gets morning glory. No big deal.
He came from it.
Its not awkward, and he's about to go through puberty - he's going to need stuff like this. Not, um, nudity, but discussions and explainations. Tell him what you know and what works, help him through. Be that brother, I guess.
Of course, it's an awkward situation, but I don't think you could have handled it much better.
Don't second guess this. You did what you could, and your son seems no worse for the experience.
Sounds like you handled it fine.
Really the only thing to add is, "Be careful who you show that off to".
I think you handled the situation well by the sounds of it. You're his father so there is no need to feel awkward.
I think you handled it fine except for the whole nudity thing. Put some shorts on around the kid.
I think you handled it very well. And don't put on shorts. You are both male, no need to cover.
I am reminded of when my son was three. He came out of his bedroom naked with a an erection and was batting it with his hand. "Look Daddy! It stands up!" I said, "That's nice, but you should play with it by yourself." He said, "OK!" and ran back to his room.
you handled it fine..
yeah..the morning wood guy is sort of a standard of life...dont have any sons so never had the situation....but there is always the situation where kids are young, and they want you to get out of bed NOW cause its morning...and you have to wait a bit or get your wife to divert attention so you can put down the pup tent..
Can you be my Dad?! haha
That is awesome, JR. I'm sure the initial situation was very awkward (especially seeing the look on your son's face, haha) but you handled it SO well and wow, what a blessing it turned out to be as it opened up those great and very important conversations, and at the right age, too. I'm so glad that your son really appreciated those talks. That is going to serve you both as he gets older, knowing he can talk with you about anything. And it sounds like he's a chip off of the old block with his "bigger than you" remark, haha. I love it!
I am glad that it was a wonderful fulfillment too and that it healed what was missing, coming full circle with your own son.
