RMMB: "Let's hear it for the boys"

Anyone else finding the holidays are well under way, which means something going on every night plus twice as many errands during the day? I really want to enjoy the season rather than survive the season so you may find my posts a bit more random than usual. Someone's got to play Santa around here!

Because it's Monday and because there's snow on the ground I'm feeling the need to snuggle a bit more with my little ones today, so today's post is what I consider a cheater post: the mention of a post I've written somewhere else. But that's all you're going to get today. If you have an issue with it you can take it up with the little elves running amuck in the house. Over on Rocky Mountain Moms Blog you'll find my latest post:


Excerpt:
Wherever you find girls, you find drama. I learned this for myself in elementary school when I pretended to not be friends with one girl so another girl wouldn't get mad at me. My girls are learning this now. I believe it was the second grade when one daughter was invited to a New Year's Eve party only to be told she was there because another girl couldn't make it. ... The point is, girls are a crazy, emotional, nutty bunch no matter the age. I've heard about drama in kindergarten but it seems to hit critical mass during the pre-teen, teen and college years. That's a good 12 to 15 years of glares, gossip and grudges. My solution? Steer clear of girls and make friends with boys. {click here to read the full post}

My first child was a boy and my second, a very hoped for girl. I am enjoying their individuality and yet have to laugh at how much I yearned for a girl, because man, that yummy, delightful, charming girl is COMPLICATED. (not that I know anything about that)

It's true that girls are more drama, but I have to note that when my girls are gone during the summer I get very lonely. The boys don't come and talk about their hair or a cute shirt they saw. They really don't talk much at all. The silence around the house is too much for me and I find myself needing to spend time with any female I can find or going to the salon to get my nails done. Anything girly to fill the void I feel with them gone.
