... to expect my 9yo twins (boys) not to stick their fingers up each other bums?

I mean, really. What's that all about? Is a recent trend and makes me lose it completely. Through clothes I hasten to add and seems an extension of the wedgie, another popular wind up which succeeds in winding me up much more than each other. I've had the serious chats, begged, whined, screamed, pleaded, cajoled all to no avail. Should I just get over myself and ignore or frogmarch them down to the nearest police station?

I did see that......sanity restored and I understand the mis-understanding smile

seems fairly normal if gross behaviour for twins, mine are just 8 and seem to be growing out of it mainly, the baring back-side that is, the finger poking they haven't done for a few months, they had worms twice and suffered and I told them it was bottom touching that caused it, handily the truth, so they don't do that anymore.
when they where first toilet trained for a few years whenever they went to the loo the other would tear in and they would engage in a game of "splashing swords" which involved trying to deflect each other stream of wee, and whilst this aided greatly to the toilet training!!! it also resulted in a foul bathroom they got banished to the wet room so I could shower the whole place down!

Mum of 12yr old twin boys here. It is a phase, like giving each other extreme wedgies and kicking each other in the unmentionables (hard enough to hurt but not permenently injure!)
It will pass eventually, but if my two are anything to go by, it will be replaced by more violent fighting/door slamming and, unfortunately swearing (all since they started High School!)
If you want to talk to other mums of twins both of similar age plus younger and older, join us on here between us, we have seen/heard of most twin and multiples behaviour!

My 5yo came up with something called 'willy zombie' which seems to consist of walking towards his dad/brother with arms outstretched, moaning "willy. WILLLYYYYYY."

Makes a change from "brains", I suppose hmm

I did explain in a later post that i missed the bit about it being over clothes and i thought they were literally sticking their fingers up each others bums. If you scroll down a bit you will see i apologised for my error. I think i am a bit hyper alert to these sort of things!

catgirl1976 Mon 14-Jan-13 21:45:42

I remember DBro going for a wee with my Dad (apparantly the were both weeing into the same loo at the same time - I suppose it saves time and water hmm ) and shouting "Sword fight daddy!" and then attempting to "sword fight" him with his penis. Whilst weeing. Covering my poor dad in wee sad

We still take the mick out of him for that one

I remember being in primary 6 and the unbelievably strict teacher leaving the classroom. The boys dropped their pants and had a contest to see who could press their willy against the hot radiator the longest. I'm surprised they didn't end up in hospital either from burns to theirs bits or injuries following the punishment they would have definitely got if the evil violent bitch teacher had caught them.

catgirl1976 Mon 14-Jan-13 21:36:59

Oh thank god the thread turned sane after a few posts

I was getting worried smile

my 6yold videoed himself dancing at the weekend, while i was in the other room. when I watched it later, halfway through his dance, he turns around, drops his trousers and pants, and shows the camera his bottom - pulling his cheeks apart. Then he casually redresses, and continues dancing.
Am thinking of saving the recording for his wedding day...

thereistheball Mon 14-Jan-13 21:15:27

Oh dear. I read this as 9 month old twin boys. Mine are 2 months old and I have all this in the post, but - thankfully - not straight away smile

aquashiv Mon 14-Jan-13 21:11:52

Ha mine have just learnt the willy dance flurp . Where have you seen this I asked one and he said in my head. They have a captive audience/partner in crime always there to help them push boundaries.
The joys of twins

I have just remembered my two doing willy windmills whenever they got out of the bath!!
Gotta love little boys!!

AmberSocks Mon 14-Jan-13 13:25:39

i would ignore it,they are probably doing it more because they know it winds you up.they will grow out of it.(i have boys a yr apart and while they dont do this they do flick each others willys as a game-when theyve got out the bath or something)boys are stupid esp as twins or close together.

thismumismad Mon 14-Jan-13 13:05:31

Yup my 2ins have done this and I agree boys are vile little beings. Thankfully they no longer do the bum poking thing. I have also encountered the thing when they are so caught up in their fighting, that they notice NOTHING around them. I have read about this particular trait in twins. My boys are now twelve and they had a fight in school a little while ago and the school almost called the police because they were ignoring the teachers. They got a sever telling off from me and the school about this unacceptable behaviour, and so far it has not happened again at school at least.

the oldest twin bent over in front of her, trousers round his ankles, pulling his bum cheeks apart. Full moon. Mortified does not cover it.

grin grin

My 2 are 5 and 7 and do similar things. They are a girl and boy and the latest is to laugh at each others genitalia at every opportunity. I bath them seperatley after I found DD legs akimbo with DS staring and discussing her nether regions. Sound like they are grabbing through clothes rather than inserting anything so I would just keep telling them not to do it and maybe remove a treat or something when they do. Its a phase and it will pass.

They really need to stop doing this. I am a child protection social worker and i have carried out investigations with kids for doing less. The problem might come if they play rough and tumble with other kids and do it to them. That child tells their parents/teacher and you have police and SW at your door. Have you had the chat about parts of the body that it is not acceptable to touch on other people (usually the area covered by underwear)?

Hats off for doing such a dificult job but I do think you are taking things a little far with that statement.

sit down and read this book with them, and answer all questions, and explain what their responsibilities are You have to make them understand it is not acceptable.

GoldPlatedNineDoors Mon 14-Jan-13 12:35:48

Wait til they start Teabagging each othrr!

StitchAteMySleep Mon 14-Jan-13 12:28:52

Just because they do it to one another in a scrap does not mean they will do it to others, some of what you have said to them about appropriate behaviour will have gone in.

They are now doing it to get a rise out of you, I would ignore for a while, see if the phase passes.

Once caught my niece and ds doing 'bottom writing'. This involved each inserting a pencil into the appropriate, er, aperture, and trying to write their name on a piece of paper on the floor.


lovelyladuree Mon 14-Jan-13 12:19:32

I do believe some children are actually dragged up.

StinkyWicket Mon 14-Jan-13 12:07:46

Oh shit.

My twins are 4 on Thursday is this what I have to look forward to?!

Also, I totally agree about the fighting and there never being a natural end point as they are the same size!

Feel have finally "arrived" on MN having started a two page thread! have enjoyed all your comments and advice thank you.

Fakebook you reminded me that our mum used to pinch the 3 of us surreptitiously at mass when we were kids to get us to behave!

SpottyBagOfTumble Fri 11-Jan-13 21:50:45

This thread has made me giggle. And reassured me that my boys are normal!

PrincessMononoke Fri 11-Jan-13 21:50:32

grin I have twins boys and have all this to come.
My friends are also twin boys they used to do all sorts of things like that to each other, mostly sticking things up each others bums.

Fakebook Fri 11-Jan-13 21:49:44

Me and my sister used to pinch each others bums really hard whilst out shopping with our mum. It all had to be done really discreetly or mum would get angry. The best time to do it, was when a stranger was standing behind the pinchee. We used to laugh until we cried.

They'll grow out of it OP. bums are funny to children.
