Should I be worried that my 5 yr old son draws boobs?

He likes to draw pics of me, his dad and himself. I get 2 circles on my body.
I asked him what "mommy was wearing" and he said, "those are your bumps mommy"

Yes I have been topless around him but didn't think much of it and now I'm going to be fully clothed from now on!

  • lol that's funny! He's normal! It's simply an observation of a babe and nothing more. My 4yo does stuff like that too! Look at superheroes, and some of the cartoons these days too. It's easy for them to notice! Relax and congrats on your totally normal five year old!

  • Ha ha! I agree with being more modest around him, but it is sooo cute. Make sure you keep some of his drawings for his baby book!

  • Actually I never go bottomless around him just topless while trying to find a shirt or whatever. I should keep the drawings for when he is a teenager and brings the girls around.
    Homework??? yikes I wlll have to keep an eye on that, lol

  • lol it is normal, my friends son drew a picture of the family i think all of them had boobs...we had to laugh about it but she was embarrassed. I would just let it go unless it keeps on for to may be a new fase
