Oh Boys

I've written before about being the mom of boys. It's an adventure. Every.Single.Day. :) I love it and I find it challenging. Our boys are good friends which can work against us as they defend one another, cover for each other, and...well, you get the idea.


Yesterday morning, Titus was out of our sight for just a minute or two and in that minute or two, he emerged with a bald spot on top of his head. Yes, his hair was cut. We are unclear on the details - both of his older brothers initially denied having any part in the hair while Titus took full blame for cutting his own hair. His hands will reach that far (we checked). The more we pried, the more one denied and then finally the other admitted to cutting it. He is, however, the one who would tell us he did something even if he didn't and even if it would get him in trouble. So, in reality, we still don't really know what happened. We do know that Titus has a bald spot on top of his head and it looks awful. [Side note: I tried to take a picture of his head but he would have none of it. Sigh. These pictures are from before the incident.]

Oh my active, busy little boys. It's hard to get anything done because it really isn't safe to let them out of my sight. :) God certainly had a sense of humor when He gave me boys. But I wouldn't trade it for the world. It's amazing and they are such cute little protectors of their mom. :)

I certainly know what you mean about having boys, I have 2 boys, 2 1/2 yrs and 3 1/2yrs old and what one doesn't think of the other one will. They keep me on my toes all the time! They definitely try my patience at times but I would not trade it for anything, my boys are my world, words alone cannot express how much I love them!

I think the expressions in the top picture say it all- you have your hands full! Sometimes it's so hard to get to the bottom of these "mysteries".

Oh that is too funny! Boys are great and fun but it is true, you cannot let them out of your sight for a minute! I love that first picture.

Been there. Done that one. A few times ;) Any mother of boys will immediately know what happened upon spotting the bald spot!

those faces look incredibly mischievous, but oh so adorable.:) that bald spot may not be Titus's best look, but it is an amusing story for sure.:)

Hahahahaha! That is so funny! Josh cut his hair at school. What is it with hair! You are right, boys sure keep us on our toes!

I'm sorry about the hair situation, but boy (pun intended) is it funny. Wait a few weeks and ask again and you may get a whole different story. Sigh.
