  • okay,,, I used to play a game, put cheerios in the toilet,,, and tried DS to aim at them,, I think the "hard on" TMI is pretty normal, when they are ready to pee, what does the momma say about it??

  • Lol my mom used to do daycare and had 3 girls of her own. The first time one of the little boys did that she called my dad at work to ask wtf?

  • Yeah it's normal. My son used to get "morning wood" all the time, and it really freaked me out. He still gets "hard ons" sometimes when he goes potty. He actually got one tonight while he was going poopy and called my husband into the bathroom because his wee wee was getting bigger. I think it scared him a little.
