Boys Rock

I've got three of these boy-model children:

Dan's First Lawn Mowing (today)

I may never pick up anything heavy ever again.

They really ought to put this information in the boy-baby marketing packet. 

Who needs American Girl dolls?

Not I. 

Not I.

  3. We have to keep the idea going that men and boys mow lawns. My husband would not teach me to use the riding lawn mower and now one of his friends mows our lawns. I am still a wannabe gardener.

    Well I am now ahead of my brilliant brothers in Wordscraper on Facebook. Only, something is wrong with the keyboard now and I am using a little notebook computer to post. I can't get to Scrabble Solver on this thing to cheat in playing this game with my brothers.

    Do you sons compete?

    1. A lady on Facebook fixed my computer. She told me what to do--unplug the keyboard and plug it back in. I maintain my lead with my brothers.

    2. Glad you're up & running! The only game I play is poker...and look out! Bring your piggy bank to Chicago soon.

  4. I am working with the girl child on laundry switching! I am trying to lure both sexes into cooking (eventhough my son once asked where the boil button was when getting ready to cook pasta...I still have hope)

    1. The "boil" button! HA! That sh*t is awesome. Write it down. Oh wait, you just did.

      Tell me more about this "cooking" concept?

  5. *sigh* The Kid still insists on making me mow half of the lawn... we make it a game to see who mows faster but I'm just waiting for the day when I don't have to do it anymore..

  6. Can you send one of your boys to the north burbs to cut MY grass?

    1. Only if you send your People magazine, chocolate, and Kleenex buying husband my way!

  7. You are lucky. I live in a house with all girls, so we have to outsource all our heavy work to my brother in law. But he is such a champion, he comes and does it all with a smile on his face.

  8. Isn't it nice? They do yard work and there is so much less drama than with girls. Usually. ;) Oh, and my blog thing was actually pretty easy. I bought an instant download template from etsy ($30). Then you just go into your blogger dashboard and click on template. Up in the right hand corner you'll see a backup/restore button. Click on that and you can upload the template you just bought and your blog magically transforms. I had to rearrange the sidebar items and what not, but that's about it. Oh, and I needed Photoshop Elements to put my own name in the header that came with the download (but if you don't have that, the etsy folk will do it for you--unfortunately it's NOT one of the jobs you can outsource to boys).

    1. You lost me at "instant download template." It's a miracle I actually have a blog given my ability to destroy technology by simply looking at it. But thank you! I'm hoping one of my boys goes into IT one day!

  9. Nice, just hope boy attitude doesn't start coming with it. And no one needs American Girl dolls, but they all want them. I hid them from my daughter til my ex forced her to start public school, then I didn't stand a chance.

    1. Damn American Girl dolls ruin everything. The boy attitude has always been here, but I'm willing to overlook it to a certain extent for free lawncare.

    1. Yes yes yes!! If I had a girl, the poor thing would be begging for princess crap while I shoved Bey Blades at her.

  11. What a sweet boy! Is 19 months too early to start mine on yard work?

    1. It's never too early! Go tell him to start picking all the dandelions!

  12. Cannot wait until my son is old enough to mow the lawn!!! Of course, he's only 2, so I have a ways to go.

    1. I think 2 is good! Or at least get him started on unloading the dishwasher!

  13. My husband can't wait for the day that he gets to hand off the lawn mowing responsibilities to the boys!
