Life with boys

 Brothers, Kids, Family, Fun, Childhood

Thirty years ago, our last child was born. A boy. Ten years younger than our first born girl, and seven than our middle son.

Having two boys was a challenge for me. I grew up without a father, and having no brothers, was totally clueless about the nature of the male species. So when these little boys came into our family, I had no idea what I was in for.

Things start our small. Like climbing and making mud pies in the sand box.

But before I knew it, things escalated.  

They go from this...

Water Fight, Children, Water, Play

My memory serves me when my middle son decided that he would take his Dad's golf clubs and hit a few. His one mean stroke sailed through the air, and went right through my bedroom window. 

Yes, boys. They are a breed of their own.

But life sure would be dull without them.

I have 2 sons, also. They are a little over 3 years apart in age. The oldest is still at home, but the youngest has given me 3 grandkids (one just 2 weeks old).

I am the mother of two boys and 6 grandsons. It is what I would choose were I given the choice. Boys are wonderful. When I taught school, I decided I really preferred boys to girls, though I tried hard not to show it. I still enjoy the boys so much and love seeing little boys out in the world. Mine are now in their 50s and they have made wonderful men. They have been a huge blessing in my life. Thanks for the wishes from a mother of boys! Carol in Texas
