My 6 year old was asked to strip down to his underwear for his physical and he started freaking out and sobbing. UPATE, OMG it gets better

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

 The nurse said as she left the room, "strip down to your undewear" He looked stricken and started crying. I was dumbfounded. For five minutes I tried to calm him down and figure out what was wrong. He said, "I need to go home for something." I said, "no, we are forty miles from home and the doctor will be in in a minute." I wrapped my sweatshirt around him, pulled his shirt off, and went to pull down his pants.

Eureka, I discovered the problem. He forgot to put on underwear. He was embarrassed. I almost cracked up. I was relieved that that was the problem. It panicked me a bit that he was so distraught about getting undressed.

I whispered to his doctor when he came in, "he is upset, he forgot to put on his underwear." The doctor smirked and said, "going commando huh?" He laughed and examined him with his pants on.


Today I was washing the bathroom floor and noticed a pair of his underwear behind our big stand up mirror in the bathroom. I pulled it away from the wall and found eight pairs of underwear!  I was wondering where all his underwear had gone to. He has been going into the bathroom to get dressed every morning, telling nobody to come in, and ditching his underwear behind the mirror. LMAO I was wondering why he suddenly started being so modest. Apparently the commando style is at least eight days old.

Do you think he might want to wear a more comfortable underwear? Maybe boxers? I would have him pick out his own next time you take him shopping.

 We have tried boxer briefs, briefs, and regular boxers. He claims that briefs are the most comfortable. He doesn't like how the boxers scrunch up sometimes. I guess he decided he didn't like any of them. He is really sensitive to how things feel on his skin. He will not wear jeans. I had to special order socks with no seam so that he would wear them. He HATES shoes and it is really hard to get him to wear anything other than crocs. Tags need to be cut out of everything.
