Do You Speak "BOY"?


Life with boys requires a mom to make certain adaptations in communication that may not come naturally.

Take Valentine's sentiments for example. Scoops of chocolate in toy loaders is "BOY" for I love you.

We also have to remember not to hug them in public (at least the older ones). Public displays of Mom Love are "not cool" and mean you don't really care about them...or you wouldn't have embarrassed the life out of them.

They'd much prefer a batch of cookies.

Cookies speak to them. (I spoke volumes with my Peanut Butter Pops yesterday!)

But little boys . . . now, they can challenge the whiskers off my chin to no end.
Take this morning for example.

Out of the clear blue--over his bowl of Fruit Loops, my four year old says to me, "Can you squeeze a chicken's neck?"

It took some some time, but I finally connected the dots.

Take yesterdays hug where I had to choke out, "Don't s-q-u-e-e-z-e my neck so hard!" plus the recent episode of Dirty Jobs at the Chicken Pluck'in Plant, and you get (drum roll, please), "Can you squeeze a chicken's neck?"

Just another typical day, trying to speak "BOY". LOL!

LOL. I love this post!
I have a 2-year-old daughter and an 8-month-old son. I'm so looking forward to getting to know them and their individual "languages." :-)
