10 Things I've Learned from My Boys

I grew up in a house full of girls. Now that I am raising two little boys, I have found that I am learning a lot about the differences between girls and boys.

1. Everyone should have a best friend.

2. Boys' eyelashes will ALWAYS be longer than girls... and no, it's not fair.

3. Vehicles of any kind are WAY more interesting than dolls. You should know the name of ALL different types of vehicles and where it fits on the "Look Mommy!" hierarchy.
Emergency Vehicles
Large Transport Vehicles
Construction Equipment
Farm Equipment
*this list subject to change at any time*

4. Boy + playing outside = dirty boy

5. You can never have to many CARS (or trucks, planes, etc... see #3)

6. Can we build it? YES WE CAN!
Can we clean it? Huh? You talking to me?

7. Work hard, play hard!

8. It's OK to take a Nap.

9. Always weigh yourself when naked. You'll feel better afterward.

10. Regardless of what the scale says, Enjoy your food!


  1. Ok too cute! I LOVE the weighing one, it should be a poster!

  2. LOVE it! Such cute pictures too! Thanks for participating!

  3. Hi there. Doing some random reading from "The Mom Blogs".

    #6 is so true! My girl is more eager to clean up then my boy.

  4. This is adorable! I grew up in a house full of girls, too, and there certainly are differences!

  5. You'd be surprised at how many of these are still applicable when you boy is 5!!

  6. #9 is the cutest picture I've seen yet of Jonah and Eli is so cute when he's asleep. He has such a cute smile too.

  7. LOL So cute! There's something about being naked and getting dirty that little boys love.

  8. Too Cute! My boys are so different from my girls. My sons (even husband) still love the vehicles. They build Thomas the Tank and surround him with Star Wars action figures. Boys will be boys. Thanks for visiting my blog!

  9. I love your list! #1 and #2 are soo true! But you forgot to add that yo can NEVER leave without said friend or endure the wrath of Kan!! ha ha

  10. Your pics are so cute! Adorable! :) Thanks for sharing!

  11. I love #6. My boys are the same way. I whisper "cookie" and they hear me from the farthest reaches of the house. I say "clean up time" and they are suddnely stone deaf. Interesting.

  12. OMG, No. 6 was HILARIOUS! I also liked the eyelash one -- it's so true. Cute pics, too. (I also grew up with all girls and now have a boy. I was the oldest and my youngest sister is 13 years younger than me, so I definitely remember when she was a baby.)

    Thanks so much for commenting on my blog -- I love hearing from other moms!
