dilemma

My makeup sponge turned up in my 10-year old son's bedroom this afternoon. As he retrieved it for me he first said he "forgot" why it was in there, then he amended that to a puzzling, "I was just playing with it."

So. An innocent goofball kid game, preteen explorations of gender identity, or a creepy Oedipal thing I don't want to entertain further?

Discuss. But gently, please.

I couldn't even begin to hazard a guess. Good luck on figuring it out.

Curious boy swiping something neat from mom to explore. It probably smells good. I would think nothing of it, seriously. My son is 20 and still does stranger stuff than that. Boys are weird.

I wouldn't read anything into it unless your actual makeup starts turning up in there. ;^)

It's nerf material, in his eyes. I bet it was being launched to knock over army dudes...

If he's anything like my kid, he was probably doing some weird science experiment. Don't use it. God only knows what he dipped in it.

Yeah, boys are just weird...Last week my son took a pair of scissors and cut a hole in my toothpaste tube...I really have no idea.

I totally would not use the makeup brush again though...

I'm with Mcswain. Whatever he was using it for could not have been sanitary. Throw it away. Get a new bag full. Then go over and check out what beanpaste's kids did with her lotion.
