But sometimes? The testosterone can be a bit overwhelming.
Take yesterday for instance. I was summoned outside by Madison shouting, "Come quick, Mom! You've got to see this!" And, as I've noted before, those are words every mother dreads. It can mean something very, very good, or something very, VERY bad.
If any of you have boys, I am sure you could just let your imagination run wild considering what Madison could possibly be so excited about. Instead of me telling you though, I think you can only truly appreciate this heart-stopping moment by seeing what I saw.
|It's a bird. It's a plane. It's a ... tree???|
Something about seeing my first-born son dangling 12 feet in the air just makes me a little uncomfortable. Can you say HEART ATTACK??? Needless to say, I demanded he come down immediately. (But Mooooom, why do you always have to go and spoil our fun?) These boys are going to do me in! Testosterone, I tell you!
|The harrowing descent|
Wait a minute. How did he get in that tree to begin with?
|Aha! Caught red-handed!|
But Moooom, it was just a little afternoon workout!
|Hey Mom, check out the gun show going on over here!|
|BOOM! BANG! FIRE POWER!!!|
|Wait a minute!|
children a reward from him.
So, is it all worth it? The loud burps, the stinky feet, the pure wildness, the testosterone-filled days?
|You tell me.|
