Having Boys

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.

Eww...not sure I could handle the bugs/worms inside the house. I think I know just about everything I can about the Mario Brothers and sharks. Boys keep us on our toes and make for some good times :)

They are great aren't they? Now if only mine would clean their shoes with a butter knife. They just tromp around with the mud caked on.
