Locker Room Talk

One started swim team last week, and one of the parts of the experience is learning to change in the boys' locker room before and after practice. He has an 8 year old's modesty so this is a big challenge for him. The first day went like this:

One (running back out the door into the hall): "Mom! There are boys all over in there and they're naked."

Me: "That's what a locker room is for. Go back in and change."

One: "But they'll see my, you know ... and I'll see theirs ..."

Me: "You don't look. That's the deal. You don't look at theirs and they don't look at yours. It's a guy thing."

One: "Okay." He disappears into the locker room and comes back ready to go.

Later that night, after showering at bedtime:

One: "Hey, Mom, I tried that "don't look" thing in the shower with Two and it really worked! But you know what, I don't think he's heard of that rule, because he kept staring at me ..."
