A Boy's Life.

I often wonder what exactly I am in for as a mother of three boys, and last week, I got a glimpse. Here are a few of my experiences:

The other morning, this is what I woke up to:

“Now, Sloan, you’re going to have to hold on REAL tight.”

Intrigued, I lift my head and squint toward the door, where I see Ethan gripping the edge of a laundry basket that is perched precariously at the top of the stairs. After grabbing my glasses for a clearer look, I see Sloan. INSIDE said basket, preparing himself for the launch. I guess sleeping in isn’t as good of an idea as I once thought…


Sitting in the living room, watching a movie with my children, I hear a ruckus and look over to examine the situation.

Sloan has his finger outstretched in front of Ethan’s mouth, which he has shut tightly. I was curious what had happened until I heard these words out of my baby’s mouth:

“Lick IT!” pinning his brother down with his left arm, “Lick it!”


Not many people can see into the future. Apparently, I can. Lucky me.


  1. i think that might have just made my day... i wish you the best of luck! That is so funny. i hope everyone stays safe. monica

  2. I see these things happening in my near future. Thanks for the insight I'm not so sure I wanted to have. :)
