The Y Chromosome

As you know, I've got twin 8 month old boys. Add those to the 5 year old boy and the 37 year old boy in the house and my daughter and I have a lot of Y chromosomes to deal with (I would say testosterone - but I don't think that the boys have a whole lot of that yet...).

Baby C has discovered his genitals. The second the diaper comes off, his hand goes down. He grabs his penis and scrotum until someone pries his fingers away in order to put the new diaper on. Where does this urge come from? And why doesn't it really ever go away for boys?

J's comment upon learning of C's new fascination with his own little package? "Welcome to the club, my friend. Welcome to the club."
