A few things that would not be, were I not the mother of boys

1. I would not scour the thrift-shop aisles for super-hero T-shirts.

2. I would not be enlisted to tie shoelaces into nooses so that my sons can lynch their stuffed animals.

3. I would not be singing the Spider-Man theme song while folding laundry.

4. I would not be searching for and printing out tank coloring pages.

5. I would not ever, ever knit with camouflage yarn.

    Have you seen the K'nex simple machines materials from Timberdoodle?? SOOOO boy-I don't think anyone here has figured out they are educational yet! They are spendier than a lot but soo worth it--the bridges that come with are pure GRAVY!

  3. I hear ya! Superhero shirts (thrifted), action figures (from garage sales, mostly), and their theme songs are a big part of my life, too!

  4. Dandelionmom, I'd never heard of K'nex, but boy-oh-boy do they ever look like what I imagine Sebastian's insides to look like! He would love that stuff. Yes, it's pricey, but maybe I can find some on eBay sometime. I also worry about all the small bits...I keep busy enough trying to keep Dominic from sucking on his siblings' marbles and such...
