Raising Boys, a look at our past

Boys and girls are definitely two entirely different creatures.  You already know this if you have a boy and a girl.  You know it doubly so if you have at least two of each.  We have boy (11 year-old David), girl (7 year-old Mary), boy (5 year-year-old Peter), and girl (2 year-old Emma).  It’s amazing to watch the alliances line up and then crumble from one minute to the next.

Are boys all “snips and snails and puppy dog tails,” and girls all “sugar and spice and everything nice”?  Ha ha!  Far from it.  They are  individuals, each of them, with their own strengths and weaknesses, but we do have some definite all boy moments around here and I’d like to share some of those quick glimpses from the past. 

I don’t normally do “best of” posts…remember around mid-season on TV when they would always run an episode that was basically snippets of other episodes tied together by some ridiculous plot?  I always hated that. {smile}  But I think these will make you smile and nod your head, especially if you have boys. {wink}

  1. Sweet Spring blessings to you!
    Cute post about your family. Brings back alot of great memories. It's neat that you are writing these down to read.

    Wish I had while my children were at home. Will start jotting down memories that come to mind so my kids and I can relive some of their childhood!!!

    God bless,
