I often get the bug eyed look from people when they see we have four boys and two more on the way.
But that doesn't really phase me.
It doesn't really feel hard or feel like I have my hands full
It just feels like our family.
And in the spirit of keepin it real you should know there are of course days that I just want to escape the vast sea of testosterone that I am surrounded by and curl up in my comfy bed with some estrogen in the form of an Anne of Green Gables marathon.
But I digress.
Anyhoo, what people don't know is that you just must have the basics in place to have a successful daily life with a few boys running around your house.
1. Love for the Lord.
2. Respect for others.
4. Sporting Equipment.
Now I know there are a kajillion books on raising boys, I think between John and I we have read half a kajillion. We are well versed in this area, but I'm tellin ya. It comes right on down to these top four things. Ok and maybe a few more hundred things. But these seem to be our top 4. :)
Around this time of year #3 undoubtedly becomes the topic of much discussion.
Case in point.
Here is what I found on the computer when I sat down yesterday to check my email for the 300th time just in case there was any news on our Article 5. (Which there wasn't. Boo.)
So I hereby give you
WHAT TO HAVE IN A THANKSGIVING DINNER
2. pumpkin pie (gotta have lots of it)
4. mashed potatoes
7. cranberry sauce (BLEC!! but if u want to go ahead)
8. Sparkling drinks :)
WHAT NOT TO HAVE IN A THANKSGIVING DINNER
4. chicken (that is just a disaster)
And I was soooo going to serve chicken with a side of pizza and a glass of milk on Thanksgiving.
Now I don't know what on earth I am going to do.....
I guess raising boys is harder than I thought.
Back to the drawing......errrr cutting board.
