I began jotting down things I hear around the house from my boys because, well, they make me laugh. In an attempt to give others a giggle, it’s now turned in to a full on Mom of Boys series on the 3rd Sunday of each month. It gives me a good reminder each month why I love my silly boys so much and it’s so fun to look back on months past as they grow up. If you missed our first Mom of Boys posts be sure to go back!
Let’s explain how this will work and who things were said by…
A = my skinny, karate obsessed, 6 1/2 year old
L = my spunky, snack loving, 3 1/2 year old
J = my geeky chic husband
M = me aka mom of boys
This is in no way meant to be a parenting lesson. Just a little peek into our crazy and at times comical lives.
Mom of boys…things you never thought you’d hear in your home, then you birthed a boy.
L: Sixty eleven.
A: There is no sixty eleven. It’s seventy one.
A: What is that noise? Is it a tarantula in the trees?
M: Ew, that’s gross. I don’t like that it shoots a puddle of blood when you hit them with a ninja star.
A: Mom, it’s a ninja game, that’s what they are supposed to do. And anyway it’s not blood, it’s jelly. They hold jelly in their pockets and when they get hit it falls out and they’re like, “Oh no! My jelly!”
L: Can you get me a snack?
M: What do you want?
M: Candy? No way, you had ice cream for breakfast.
L: But that’s not candy.
L: My teacher learned it to me.
L: I smell cake in here. No, I smell wet smoke. No, I smell little cold air.
L: Moms are wrapped in toilet paper.
M: Why, is it because were soft and cuddly?
L: Yeah. Monsters never go to sleep. Skeletons are wrapped only in bones.
A: Mom next time can we get a watermelon and paint it like a zombie and then bash one side so it looks like the brains?
A: I won’t get romantic eyes until I’m 16
L: I love you.
M: I love you more.
L: I love you most.
M: I love you mostist.
L: I love you Googleplex.
L: L starts with my name.
J: You don’t get to be thrown up if you haven’t eaten.
J: Don’t eat those carrots. You don’t get any more vegetables until you eat your meat.
Our Favorite comment from last Mom of Boys post was from Chastity of A Cowboy’s Life…
C: Where did you get your boobs mommy?
M: I was born with them because I’m a girl.
C: No! Where did you get them?
M: The Lord gave them to me.
C: No, you bought them at Walmart.
