Boys will be boys

As you all know by now I have 4 male offspring! I am frequently (and often rudely) asked if I would have liked a girl...well yes I would! For reasons such as, being able to have pink clothes, hair bobbles, ballet shoes, a pink bedroom, and for having an adult daughter/mother relationship- i would happily have foregone the teenage one ...yikes!!!
And the noise....surely little girls are quieter?? My ears ring sometimes with the racket!

And the running....the only one who doesn't run through the house is the baby...and thats cos he can't yet lol!!

And the toilet humour...everything is about poo...my 3yr old has been taught alternative words to mama mia by abba (!), which is delightful, and baa baa black sheep have you any poo anybody???!!

But would I swap any one of my grotty boys for anything in the world? Not ever! Even though they reduce me to tears sometimes....take the other day, the big boys have been away with granny for nearly a fortnight...the day after they came home they went for a swim and on their return, they presented me with this...

My 2 lovely boys had gone into the local florist on their way home, chosen an individual gerbera for me, paid for it with their own pocket money, got it all wrapped up in pretty paper and brought it for me...why? Because 'you are the best mum in the world' (from 10yr old) and ' cos, felt like it dint I' (from 13yr old!!). Cue snot and tears from mummy!! I realised then what fabulous thoughtful boys I have, and without getting too emotional about it, how truly blessed I am to have them, all in good health.

My family is complete now and I don't feel something is missing with no daughter, so there will be no more 'trys' for that elusive pink one!!!

That was such a great read!
I only have a boy, who`s 6 years old and still goes on about poo this, poo that...
And he is so much noisy that his two sisters and very boystrous, always climbing and jumping up and down, but, he is so very loving and cuddly... I love him to bits!
Oh, by the way...
C.O.N.G.R.A.T.U.L.A.T.I.O.N.S!
