My youngest son just turned 8 and he is going through a very observant stage. You really can’t get anything by him these days.
Since we got Dexter, ET has been following him around and studying canine behaviour. This weekend he came to a conclusion…
“I wish I was a dog. They don’t have to go to school, they get lots of treats…”
He paused, then added in a loud whisper,
“…and they can lick their penis!”
Ahhh, the good life.

I know none of these are exclusive to a house with boys but, as a whole, I think the gender of our children is pretty clear.
1) Random toy collections litter every surface of our home.
2) There is a high-tide line in our bathtub.
3) “Wash your hands before you touch anything!” is a standing order.
4) We have a mysterious “trail-mix” factory in our car.
5) We are grateful everytime the puddle on the bathroom floor is only water.
6) We know the excruciating pain of stepping barefoot on Lego.
7) The only “F word” in our house is fart.
8) We have a “no bugs/rocks/sticks in the house” rule.
9) We can’t make plans until we check the kids’ hockey schedule.
10) The laundry never ends.
11) Our house had a stinky dog odor before we even got a dog!
Do you have boys, girls or a mixture? Does your house have a particular gender flavour?
This morning the 9-year-old was overheard sharing some wisdom with his friends…
“Note to self: when parents say “maybe” they usually mean no.”

Before bed, there was a pause in the 7-year-old’s toothbrushing so that he could yell a question downstairs to his brother…
“CJ, what did you name the freckle on my butt?”
The 9-year-old hollered back,
Ahhh… Of course.

The other day, I became disgusted while eating lunch with the 6-year-old. Like most kids his age, he still chews with his mouth open. Deciding it was a good moment to teach better table manners, I asked him to try chewing with his mouth closed.
He watched me demonstrate and then gave it a shot. After a couple of attempts, he sighed and rejected the new method.
“Nope. My teeth can’t open as much… it’s not very efficient.”
The kid is too smart for his own good!
