All boys!

I am a mother of 3 boys ages 11, 9 and 2 1/2. If anyone has 3 boys you will understand that sometimes you feel like you want to rip your hair out as well as theirs!!!!!! I love them all very much and wouldn't change it for the world. Each one of them are wonderful, precious, and have a special place in my heart. They do drive me crazy and I know I am getting paid back for what I did as a child and I feel terrible for my parents. You think growing up you know everything and your parents are stupid and they know nothing. Well my two older kids have already hit that stage in life and it's very frustrating. They think they know everything and when I try to tell them they don't, they just stand there and argue with me. I tell them to zip it and they just continue to argue. Now I don't know about you, but I would push my luck a bit with my parents, but I always knew when I was pushing too far and would zip it. All my parents had to do was give "the look" and I knew, as did my brother and sister, that if we didn't stop we were in trouble. I give my kids the same look that terrified me and my kids just stare at me like I'm twitching or something. What is that about? I mean really they know how to wear you down so you just want to crawl in a hole because you have no energy to even get to them. Oh for the day my children have kids and come to me and say "mom, you are not going to believe what they are doing..." I am just going to laugh, laugh, laugh! Anyone else feel that way?

Hi Jen,
I'm coming over from Leah's blog. I too have 3 boys, whom 1 is a step son. He is 19, then I have an 8 year old, and a 6 year old.

Oh yes, my 8 year old thinks he knows it all too and will argue with me. ARG! I love boys though. They can be so fun!

I'm looking forward to learning more about you and your family. A 3 lb. 12 oz baby is a miracle!

Nice to meet you.
