Having raised two boys, this makes me smile wide and deep. Oh, the memories.
Just thank your lucky stars they haven't experimented with spit wads cemented to the ceiling. My two discovered that small pieces of toilet paper (thank God..clean toilet paper) mixed with a drop of two of water, produced an almost concrete like product when dry. It was nearly impossible to remove.

Don't you just love having boys? Mine make me laugh so much. We were really lucky with Tom's drumkit which we got for £25. It isn't brilliant but he's gradually upgrading it. Make sure you get silencers!

Lesley

I need to take a leaf out of your book. I seem to have spent the whole weekend drifting along but really need to get out there and just do!

Excellent Nerf target :o)

If you are looking for ways to really keep your boys occupied on a soggy afternoon (or throughout the entire Summer) nip on over to www.cainesarcade.com Inspiration aplenty there.

Boys are such boys aren't they?! I'm breathing a sigh of relief that we don't have a nerf gun. Juliex

Monica

puberty boy. Classic.

We have "uh do you have to wear so much LYNX! it doesn't make you cool"

Cruel.

I like the target... does it really stop nerf bullets from being everywhere?

(I'm waiting too... fancy meeting and waiting together soon?)

Ali

thanks for the nerf target idea, I too am fed up of being shot at or finding them in all manner of strange places! Will show to son and get him making asap :)

I nearly choked from laughing so much at 'puberty boy'. Seriously, there are tears in my eyes. But I think it's partly from recognition - my 13.5yr old definitely needs a 'puberty boy' t-shirt to wear. Wouldn't mind so much, but I have two toddlers with their own specialised form of tantrums too. It's like the three of them are crafty velociraptors, attacking me from all angles. Oh well. First bit of quiet of the day, I'm off to plan some sewing (whether I get the chance to do it is another thing!).

Oh, boys... it says it all! Sometimes one just has to go with the flow - I just bought something very expensive on impulse because it will represent the jubilee for someone who isn't even born yet but is due this year. Real rush of blood to the head but if I'd waited they would have sold out. It's a bit of an act of faith and totally out of character but it seems a lot of people are in limbo at the moment.

boys......
love the flowers. x

I get that feeling all the time. Doing something, anything, seems to be the only way to deal with it, if I ever do deal with it.

Oh, and that face. Priceless.

Amanda

And don't siblings know just which buttons to press to get the biggest reaction!

I'll swap you for a puberty girl if you like!!
And a drum kit, dear lord the recorder put me off them learning an instrument even though I made them practice in the garden. Well, not when it was raining!

Laura

You're very good at putting tricky moods into words. I think I'm waiting for some child free time to get on with things which is silly really as they're not going any where any time soon! I should just get on with stuff really.
Love the 'puberty boy' insult. I remember chanting 'bikini bosoms' at my older sister when she hit puberty haha!

Jo Carter

'Puberty boy' did make me chuckle.
I have two boys so it's nice to know what's in store for the future. I've filed the Nerf target away in my memory bank for a year or twos time!

The Coffee Lady

You don't need to tell ME about feeling unproductive.

I just clicked over from another site and figured I should take a look around. Like what I see so now I'm following you. Look forward to checking out your some of your posts again.
