A few things I've been known to
"Don't forget you're a boy!"
(This is in reference to using the bathroom. I'm telling you, it's hard when NO one else has to take the extra second to put the seat up -- and back down -- SOFTLY! Hard!)
"He's not hitting you! He's touching you! He's a boy. Boys touch differently than girls touch!"
(This is in reference to the hundreds of times a day I'm told by one of the girls that they've been hit by their brother.)
Things are certainly different with a boy around.
But, we are all learning to live and love in spite of (and often because of) our differences!
I also must say, I'm enjoying that mysterious connection between a momma and her boy. Not saying that I was missing something before . . . just saying that I'm enjoying it now!
