Boys Are Weird


Tonight, as I was giving Cam his routine, "pre-bedtime" bath, something happened.

My soapy little man was slippin' and slidin' in the tub, merrily laughing at the yellow duckies that were gliding through the bubbles.  After I had lathered and rinsed his hair (I know you're thinking, "What hair?") with lavender-smelling shampoo, I briefly turned my back on him to return a damp towel to the towel rack.  When I turned back around, I saw him do something so ridiculously stereotypical of his gender it made me freeze in my tracks.

He stood up, took a whiz in the tub, and happily exclaimed, "OH WOW!"

(I saw his face, people!  He was focused on the "range," he was admiring "the splash value."  He was...proud???  And fascinated??  And IMPRESSED?!)

Sometimes, being the mother of a boy freaks me out!

So tonight--before some much-needed beauty rest--I'm going to "cope" by doing something ultra girly.  Like tweeze my eyebrows...and watch Pride and Prejudice...while I paint my toenails...and apply a mud mask.

Sheesh!  Boys are weird.

  4. ha! Did James strut around the house the rest of the night with his chest puffed out saying "That's my boy!"
    there's more where that came from, I would guess. Some of your best stories happen in the bathroom.... HA!

  6. Oh my goodness, this is too funny! I have two little guys and can fully relate. I also think boys are gross. :-P I am amazed nearly everyday at the gross things they come up with and do.

  10. As a mommy to a little Mr....I totally get what you are saying. The first time my little Liam became aware of his..."man parts" I was freaked out!

  17. That is funny. I said when I had my son that God has a sense of humor. I hadn't a clue what to do with a boy. It all turned out well though. New follower from Wonder Wednesday hop. I hope you will take a moment to stop by my blog and check out my kind of fashion (hair jewelry). I saw your post about accessories so I hope my blog interests you. I'm not just trying to gain followers with hopping, I'm trying to spread the word about a product I love. Here's my url http://talesfrommyjournal.blogspot.com I have listed a facebook page on the hop too which is www.facebook.com/DeniseMartin.LillaRose I hope you can stop by there as well. It's the fastest way to hear about specials.

    Boys sure are way different compared to girls... as a mom of an 8, and 4 year old girls... when we had my son who is not 2 it was a whole nother thing.. from having to watch out when changing them... but still fun and exciting to watch grow up.
