16 Questions You Secretly Have When You Find Out You're Having A Boy

Everything you secretly wondered, but never said out loud.

1. First off, how do you clean IT?

ABC

Yes, you mean the baby penis and balls.

2. And then there's the question of circumcision.

Just saying the word sounds painful.

3. And while we're on the topic, what are you going to teach him to call his "thing"?

You could go traditional here with "penis" or make up your own word, like "Beanee Weenee" or "Frank N' Beans."

4. How should you style his hair?

Paramount

Of course you think about these kinds of things.

5. Wait, wait. Back to the penis. Does putting on a diaper hurt him or smash it? Or worse yet, stunt its growth?

NBC

You don't want to be responsible for any permanent shrinkage.

6. And once he is potty trained, how will you ever keep your toilet seat clean?

Fox

Face it. You will never be able to keep the toilet clean for as long as he lives at home.

7. Is your grocery bill going to double?

Nickelodeon

No, it will probably triple.

8. At what age will he start getting facial hair?

9. When will his voice change?

10. What age do you start talking about condoms?

11. And what if he dates someone you hate?

Columbia

Things could get ugly.

12. Will he get boners?

Disney

YES.

13. What do you do when you find lotion in his bedroom?

And what if it's a really BIG bottle?

14. More importantly, what do you do if you find his porn stash?

Universal

You can't even deal with that.

15. Are you even equipped to handle things like ~wet dreams~?

NBC

The answer is no.

16. And there's also that fear of not knowing when he'll be taller than you.

Just because he's bigger than you doesn't mean you can't punish him.
