Did you know that I was brought up mostly surrounded by females? I lived with just my mom and sister after my parents got divorced. I was blessed with another sister when my dad got remarried. Almost all of my cousins are girls.
Did you know that boys and girls are VERY different? The present time has found me living surrounded by males, so I certainly know this now!
I prayed to God that my first child would be a boy. I had really wanted a brother growing up and never got this wish granted, (I wouldn't trade either of my sisters for a brother though! Love you Amy and Rachel!) so I really wanted our first child to be a boy. I guess God granted me my desire.....times 4!
I TOTALLY ADORE my boys! I am so blessed to have been given them and I thank God for them daily.
But, did you know that girls and boys are VERY DIFFERENT?!
I went from being surrounded by girls to being surround by this.
Did you know that boys continually goof off? Did you know that boys are very loud? Did you know that it's almost impossible to take a decent picture of 4 boys together?
Did you know that a rake can be used for raking leaves, but that it can also be used as a weapon?
Did you know that a peaceful hammock can be turned into a war zone?
Did you know that dinner time is actually comedy and debate hour? And, trips to the store are actually a trip to a wrestling match?
I had no idea, until I got married and had 4 boys!
Did you know that boys are full of energy, full of noises, full of bad ideas and full of pent-up excitability?
I recently read this comic and I thought to myself; "This is SO my life!"
***(click on comic to enlarge, to be able to read more clearly)***
It's never a dull moment with boys around! And, this is an understatement!
I LOVE MY BOYS!!!!!
But, this Momma sure could use a girl's weekend soon! (Can you tell that my husband is gone hunting for 5 days and I'm stuck at home with the boys, two of which are sick, and I'm losing my mind?!)
