Having boys is:
*having deer bones, cleaned and bleached, on the table outside on the deck for months, as they try to find enough to make a full skeleton
*finding dirt on the floors, kitchen counters and in the sink, as boys try to clean the mud off their shoes with water and butter knives
*going into your bathroom late at night to find a two-dixie-cup high tower on the vanity. As you get closer, you notice air-holes. And you don't panic. Instead you peek in, smile at the tiny worm in the dixie cup and restack them
*an ever-changing mountain of books containing football stats, baseball stats, Guinness World Record books and Ripley's Believe It or Not books.
