About this blog

Of all the animals, the boy is the most unmanageable”


Have you ever noticed that the word “boys” rhymes with the word “noise?”  How about the fact that the word “boisterous” [pronounced BOY-sterous] means “loud, noisy and lacking in restraint or discipline?”  If you ask me, these are not simply etymological coincidences.  Nor is the fact that I am mother to 3 sons a coincidence.  The big MAN upstairs knew what he was doing and didn’t throw me into this without training.  In fact, He prepped me by having me grow up in a family where I was the only girl, raised by my dad, and sharing a house with my three older brothers.  So my entire life has been about Three Boys.

This blog is written to make light of my life as an exhausted mother of 3 rambunctious sons… I love each fiercely, and fiercely is how they love me back:  Hugs and kisses are full contact sports at my house, and interactions with my sons are often prefaced with one of them approaching me with outstretched arms, saying: “Mom, tell me if this hurts…”

People often ask me if the incidents I write about were funny at the time they actually happened.  The answer is more often than not a resounding: “NO!”  But if I didn’t choose to laugh it off, I would be curled up in the fetal position somewhere, babbling incoherently about boogers, burps and bruises…

    Really great blog. Very needed!!! I thought I was the only one that forgot the tooth fairy repeatedly and does the dollar in the hand trick. So many things hit me right where I live with my three amazing, totally crazy, wild sons!
