  • yes, it is. Don't worry about. It's what he sees YOU doing and he loves you!

  • Well I havent had my son yet but i have cousins that are boys and they do that too. So yeah its normal they are just expermenting that is all but i would let him keep doing it cause then he'll get into a habit of it and it will be a hard thing to break him from.

  • I have found my 2 year old son with a face full of make-up more than once.... And trust me, he's ALL boy. So no, it doesn't mean a thing.

  • Ok... Not that I would care but is father is super "homophobic" and I wouldn't want my son to have t go through that

  • Well, kids don't really fully form their sexual identity until they're in their early early teens (sometimes a little earlier than that), so nobody will be able to know what your son will be till a few years from now. However, I surely hope his father would be able to overcome his homophobia if his son DOES turn out to be gay... Right now, it's just entirely too early to tell.

  • LOL I have pictures somewhere of my son when he was about 2 with my eyeliner & lipstick all over his face. =) & he's all boy trust me. They see you do it, & want to mimic. thats all.
