The Secret Life of Boys
Let's start with a confession. . .
I am a girl.
Not just your ordinary girl - but a total girly-girl. I love pink, and love songs and ruffles. I was voted class flirt in High School AND college.
I now live with 3 boys (technically 2 boys and a man). I am the only girl (unless you include the cat).
Suddenly I have noticed an increase in body sounds around here. . .you know, passing gas and burping. . .mostly followed by giggles rather than a polite "excuse me". Don't let their big blue eyes and adorable smiles fool you.
What is a girly-girl to do?? I know it is all part of growing up - a rite of passage if you will. . .but still.
Sometimes i don't understand this secret life of boys - the firetrucks, the construction vehicles, the loud noises, the wars and battles. . .but i am always here on the sideline - cheering them on - helping to teach them to become wonderful men like their daddy.
Are you a mom (or dad) to a boy or boys? What amazes you?
catch you soon -
