Do all boys do this?

I wake my son up a couple times a night to go to the bathroom and every time he stands there half asleep and scratches his butt. It is to funny watching him swaying around and just scratching his butt.

Does your son do this?

  • Atleast he stands there scratching his butt. Mine used to walk into one particular wall repeatedly with his eyes closed and then when he finally did open his eyes...after the third time hitting the wall, he had the nerve to look at me like I did something wrong...gotta love em.

  • All of mine did it as children. My husband still does it. My granddaughter generally scratches her leg while shes sitting. No biggie.

  • Poor guy, he must be tired, getting woken up a couple times a night??....I'd try a different way of night training....mine were night trained at 3, I never had to wake them up, that would be torture for everyone...
