A Woman Scorned has Nothing on My Son

This one doesn’t need a great deal of explanation. My eight-year old son was angry at his six-year old sister. To him, the only clear course of action was to defile one of her favorite things. With a blue Sharpie. At least he spelled it correctly, I guess. Perhaps most disturbing was that my daughter lobbied hard for her brother to not be punished. She found the entire situation hilarious. I guess penis jokes really are universal.

    O.M.G. This is so hilarious! Time for a new lamp.. and maybe some time to reflect on what he just did! hahahaha! Chores to earn a new lamp would definitely be in order in this house!

    There is a product you can get from paint stores called “oops!”.  It might take some of that ink out of there.  Once it’s faded, i’d find a similarly colored pink acrylic paint and try to paint over it if she decides she’s tired of having the penis on there at some point 🙂

    The PEN IS mightier than the sword…

    I love that she didn’t want further retaliation against him. It’s like, through her laughter, she was thinking, “No, no. He does make a valid point!”

    I’ll have to remember this one the next time my wife and I get into a battle. In fact, there are a few lamps in the house that I don’t like!

    You can also use rubbing alcohol to remove the ink. It should get it out fairly easily.

    Thanks for posting this…really…as a mom of 4, I thought I had seen it all. This, however, had me laughing until I cried.

    nail polish remover (with acetone) should take it right out. 

    too funny 🙂

      I’ve tried everything to remove sharpie.   Acetone is the only stuff that really works, but make sure to test it first.  Some synthetic stuff just melts.

        Yeah, but since it’s ruined already it hardly seems to matter.

    wow! I guess my sense of humor must be going, apparently Im the ONLY one who found this way inappropriate.

    This is more than inappropriate. The fact that this child at age 8 is exhibiting such knowledge about sexual organs shows that he has probably been exposed to pornography. This child needs some help and should not be left alone with his younger sister.

      or maybe he’s seen his own penis?

        To use the symbolism of a penis out of anger shows that he knows that is is not acceptable to display ones penis. My big fear is that since he thinks he can use a image of a penis as a weapon of revenge that next time he might actually use his own penis to take his anger out on his sister. I “guarantee” that this child has been exposed to inappropriate sexual behavior from somewhere.

          Or maybe it’s the fact that they now teach sex ed in elementary school and use the anatomically correct terms??? You are being more than ridiculous with this.  All I can do is laugh at this.

          WOW! You are just being plain ignorant and ridiculous here! You cannot “guarantee” anything based solely on your own personal thoughts. Where on earth does it say or mean that when a child draws a penis just to get back at his sister, it means he may rape her? It sounds to me that you are the one who has some issues and needs to get some help from demons in your own past!!! You are acting like you were there, front row seats, to this boy being allowed to watch porn or his own parents having sex. For all you know, this child is like almost every other child out that that has walking in on their parents having sex. Hell, all my kids have done that to us many times!

          What if the child drew a knife, gun, bomb, fire, sword, etc. out of anger. Then would you be going on to say that you fear this child has violent tendencies and may stab, shoot, blow up, set aflame, maim, etc. his sister the next time he gets angry at her? Or is it just the penis issue? Maybe you think everyone should draw flowers and rainbows when they get angry. Oh wait, if a boy drew flowers and rainbows out of anger would you then go onto say that he must have homosexual tendencies and must have been exposed to such a lifestyle??

          My 5 yr old has drawn a penis. Just the other day for a matter of fact. Does that mean he too has been exposed to innapropriate sexual behavior? Heck no he hasn’t! Porn in not allowed in my house nor does my husband and I watch movies that have sexual content in them around our kids. But goodness, since you obviously think that you absolutely KNOW and can GUARANTEE that this behavior is due to sexual exposure, I guess my child should get help too! *sigh*

      Or it could just mean that he has been told the names of his body parts. Your comment would be accurate if the ONLY thing a penis is used for is sex & the only way he could have ever come into contact w/it was through sex or pornography. But since I’m betting he sees his every time he pees…and if he got his info from pornography it’s VERY unlikely that his choice of the word to use would be “penis” since that is not usually how they are referred to in pornography…

      Or he could have a sense of humor at 8 that everyone should have.  Less wars if everyone was less uptight.

    “Wow” I have never been so beat down by so many over a post online. I stated my opinion just like the rest of you and could care less if you agree or not. I just hope the original poster of this sees this and keeps an eye out in the future inappropriate sexual behavior from this child. one person here keyed on the word “Guarantee” of course I can’t guarantee anything it is just a figure of speech. I do not back down from anything I have said. So many here have said how funny this is. If you find this funny at all in any way “YOU HAVE ISSUES” this is entirely inappropriate. this child has now exposed his 6 year old sister to something she should not be learning about yet. I know there is alot of contraversey around when children should learn about the these things. but my opinion which last time I checked I did still have a right to is that at 6 there is no need for her to know what a penis is or what one looks like.
