Things I’ve Learned About Boys…

God gave me boys because He knew me!  God knows that I have no idea what to do with hairbows and make-up.  He knows that it isn’t polite to yell and cheer at a ballet recital, therefore I would be really out of place.  He gave me boys… and I am thankful.  Here are some things I’ve learned about boys along the way…

  • ALWAYS, and I mean ALWAYS, check their pockets BEFORE the washing machine.
  • Everything is a competition… running, putting on a seatbelt, finishing dinner, everything.
  • Song lyrics are merely a suggestion… my favorite is “give me some meatballs and free my soul I wanna get lost and drop and roll.”
  • DSI games can survive the washer and dryer, iPods can not. (See above)
  • Anything can be turned into a weapon… sticks turn into make-shift swords and fingers can easily be guns.
  • Touching their privates must be some gender requirement.
  • There is always dirt.
  • Loud is normal.
  • Burping and farting are socially appropriate.
  • Play is necessary, conversation is not.
  • They have trouble aiming 😉 .
  • There is no disagreement that 5 – 10 minutes won’t heal.
  • Even if they act tough, they still need to hear that you are proud of them.
  • No matter how old they get, they still love mommy hugs & kisses, even if they pretend not to.

“Listen, my son, to your father’s instruction and do not forsake your mother’s teaching.  They will be a garland to grace your head and a chain to adron your neck.” Proverbs 1:8-9
