What Would You Do?

I finally got my son potty-trained and I was so excited. He'd been walking around in his cute little Buzz Lightyear underwear for about a week until he noticed it.
And once he realized it was there, there was nothing I could do to stop him. After about a week of being potty-trained my two year old found his lower extremity. And that didn't surprise me because I have an older son and I can still remember when he too realized that he had a little something extra down in the Southern Hemisphere of his body.

The thing that really bothers me is that his right hand is clutching it from the time he wakes up until the time he goes to bed. Everybody asks him if he has to go pee. He just looks up and says, very matter-of-factly "no." And then he gets on with his day....with his right hand attached you know where.
The other day we were in the grocery store when this older woman looked at my son, then looked away just to snap her head right back and glare at him. Then she turned that ice cold glare to me and huffed! She huffed at me because of my two year old. What am I supposed to do...tie his hands behind his back?

I just try to gently redirect his attention even though I want to scream, "IT'S NOT GOING ANYWHERE!" All I can do is hope and hope and hope that he grows out of it. Then again there are a lot of men that never did!
