Kris has recently been able to take the boys to the Build and Grow Saturday mornings at Lowes. They have enjoyed the projects, and especially getting to spend some time with Daddy. The latest project was a special one for Mother’s Day that arrived home shrouded in secrecy. My kids haven’t completely grasped the concept of keeping a secret, so I loved that they worked so hard to keep me from finding out what they had brought home.
A couple days before Mother’s Day, my eldest said to me “Mom, you’re lucky to have 4 boys. Some people don’t have any boys!” Haha! I immediately thought about the wrestling matches, and the dirt, and the conversations about underwear and bodily functions, and the fact that they are so LOUD! But then I thought about the hugs and kisses, and snuggles, and how they ask me to play catch with them, and the bonds of friendship I see forming between them. And after receiving my gifts, hand built and hand picked for their mama by this rambunctious bunch, I feel very blessed indeed to have a house full of boys…..
