Top Ten

Top Ten Reasons You Know You’re a Mother of Boys (Sad but true)

1. When you notice that your dining room chandelier has a GI Joe dangling from it.

2. When you find that the boat they’re using to float their playmobile men is actually an athletic cup.

3. When you can’t identify what is actually in your son’s pocket.

4. When you step on legos during the middle of the night on your way to the bathroom.

5. When you realize that soda was invented so that boys could have burping contests.

6. When you can’t find the “extra” taco shells and discover your son ate 22 tacos in one sitting.

7. When you explain to your child that showering once a week isn’t going to cut it.

8. When you find the kitchen “help” having a fencing match with steak knives.

9. When they can quote ERAs, Ks, BBs, and RBIs of their favorite major league baseball players from memory, but can’t remember where the hamper is.

10. When you walk into the kitchen and say to figure standing in front of the open refrigerator door, “You’re eating butter!?”


  1. Ha Ha Ha! Jacob and Matthew are so silly!

  2. What do you mean "Jacob and Matthew"? You took part in more then half of them.

    Ps. I can't quote ERAs, Ks, BBs, and RBIs of my favorite major league baseball player from memory

  3. Ha Ha Ha! You are still silly!

  4. We take the "Reason 1" to the next level by having the GI Joe Figures being scattered around the floor of the room in pieces along with the LEGO Bricks and having the chandelier threaten to fall by shaking rapidly whenever a boy decides to enter the room directly above it. (Which happens to be the BOYS Room.)

  5. I've enjoyed many things on your blog, but I related to this one the most! It makes me feel a little more secure knowing that the pastor's wife has army men dangling from things in her house too! (T. climbs up the door frames and hangs--err, suspends--men from that. He's not tried the chandelier; I won't show him the picture!)

    Thanks for a good laugh!

  6. Hmmm. Some of these I haven't done before...

  7. I thought I posted a comment here, oh well, maybe it didn't do it right. darn.

  8. Don't go getting any ideas, Duncan. You must be a role model for your younger sibblings.
