A few months ago my friend Sara over at Mom Endeavors had a brand new, beautiful baby boy… He joined his two big brothers over at the Mom Endeavors family. Knowing that I had a bit of experience with boys, Sara asked me to write up a little something about them. I shared this over at her blog while she was still recuperating. (Do you ever fully recuperate from childbirth…? I don’t know that you do. You’re certainly never quite the same.)
Anyhow, this is what I thought Sara needed to know:
People will say really dumb things to you when they hear you have all boys. It is usually along the lines of Oh, you are the Queen of the Castle! Let me tell you something:
- No Queen in history has ever had the words “OK! Who peed on the wall?!” come out of her mouth.
- No Queen in history has ever had to give people a lecture about toilet seats, or explain why it’s important to aim for the water, as opposed to just the general target of the toilet itself.
- No Queen in history has ever encountered a real lizard while doing laundry. (True Story)
- No Queen in history has ever had to issue a decree that there will be no stories, jokes or songs about bodily functions at the dinner table.
|Lizard. In my washing machine. Not sure whose pocket he was in.|
