Tightey Spidies

My son has been pulling at his pants, yanking at his crotch, and just looking really uncomfortable for months.

"Do you need to pee?" I asked.


"Are you okay?"

"Yeah."  But it was obvious he wasn't.

I couldn't figure out what was wrong.  I even told his father "You know, Ben's seems to be grabbing at his crotch a lot.  What should I do?"

He asked him, "Ben, do your private parts feel okay?"


"Do you need to pee?"


He clearly wasn't delving any deeper into the problem than I had.

On a lark, I went into his underwear drawer.  Sure enough, that Spider Man underwear he loves so much is a size 4.  He just turned 7.

DER!  Sometimes the answer to our problems is right under our noses.  And our butts.


  1. Thanks for your comment on MBC - better late than never, which reminded me I never did subscribe to your posts, so now I have!

    Your poor son! I hope he now has some new clothes with more room for his "gear" :-)

  2. Oh so funny, I can't stop laughing. The kid had to know they were too small, but a typical boy with the one word answer. I was in my daughter's class yesterday and I had to read a book to the class. This little guy right in front of me kept grabbing at himself. Maybe his whities were a little tighty too! Or maybe when he relaxes he has to have his hand in there, I don't want to know!


I love, love, LOVE hearing from you, so DON'T BE SHY! And PLEASE feel free to send me an e-mail if you would like me to reply to your comment! I can't write you back if I don't know how to find you!
