About a year ago, 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. And now I have one more boy to add to the mix, though he won’t be saying much at first so you won’t see him show up here for a while. If you missed our first Mom of Boys posts be sure to go back!
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.
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
M: That man is shaving his head while he drives. That’s the weirdest thing I’ve ever seen.
A: Not weirder than a pirate turning into a monkey singing a little silly song.
L: Why are we going this way?
M: Because we need to take some money to the boy who mows the lawn so we’re driving through the neighborhood.
L: A hood is a hat.
M: You’re right.
L: Aiden, my undies are cooler than yours.
A: No, mine are dragon.
L: Well dragons are a bit cool.
A: Well daddy likes dragons and he doesn’t like lightning McQueen that much.
A: How come the only place nectarines are having a party is in my stomach?
