Boys!

Today I am linking up with Kelly's Korner because it is Show Us Your Life Friday. Today's topic just happens to be "Mom to All Boys". I generally don't link up but when I saw the title I knew I had to link up this week. For those of you from Kelly's Korner...welcome!

I am a mom to Callum (14), Kobe (9), and Samuel (4). Being a mom to these boys means:

* Always having baby wipes and band aids on hand

* Making our schedule around whatever current sport is being played

* Hearing stories about eating worms

* Coming outside to a pile of rubble in the yard and getting this response when you ask what is going on: We are trying to make a fire with brush and two sticks like on Man, Woman, Wild

* Finding two little boys under a tree with apple juice boxes and spoons and apples off of the apple tree and when asked what is going on they say: Well, we want two apple trees in our yard instead of one so we are planting apples (digging the holes with a spoon) and watering them with apple juice so they will grow quicker

* Never being caught off guard when a little "wrestling" session begins...even if it is behind you at the grocery store!

* Being entertainment when they tie rubber bands around the dish sink hose and when you turn on the water it sprays you down or tying a spider to the milk jug with fishing line so that when you slip your hand through the handle ...the spider falls out!

* Having sweet help from little boys who love their mom

* Finding action figures and hot wheels in every pocket in your car and purse

* Having dirty little hand prints on your clothes (but you don't mind because you got a great hug!)

* Having your little boys "protect" you from things (bugs, etc.)

* Being challenged to eat a chocolate covered cricket...and doing it for the "cool" points

* Getting to snuggle with sweet little boys each night!

These are some of the things that make my life worth living!

As you can see... even professional picture day can't keep brothers from wanting to wrestle...notice Samuel's arms tightly around Kobe and Callum's necks!

  1. You have a lovely family! My boys are spaced out almost like your - 9,6 and 5 months.
