Things I’ve learned

Here are just a few things that I’ve learned as a mom of boys:

– I can name almost any type of construction truck out there.  If you aren’t sure if it’s a front loader or an excavator, you now know who to ask.

– The same goes for tractors.  Having a dad who works for John Deere helps.

– Spider-Man holds his hand a specific way when shooting his web.  And you must make the sound effects at the same time.

– If you have no idea what they’re talking about, it probably pertains to a video game. 

– Aiming is harder than you think.

– At some point they will come outside naked, put their hands on their head and pee like a sprinkler.  In front of your friends. 

– Cute clothes can be hard to find.  Everything either has sports equipment or a truck on it.

– Tackling can occur at any moment in time, even at church.

– Even strong tacklers need kisses from their mom.

– Finally, as rough and tough as they can be, they still need to cuddle with their parents (thank goodness).

  1. So cute and so true! Don’t you just love being the mommy to boys? (total seriousness, not sarcasm this time!)

  2. I laughed hard at the pee like a sprinkler thing.

  3. love this post! and i’m impressed with your knowledge of all things trucks/tractors. that’s never been a huge attraction around here, so i’d be clueless.

    however, i can talk star wars with the best of them. :)
