Day by day, I am bombarded with my new reality, that now – I am a mom of 2 boys! I can’t complain for my life is good. It’s just that … when I was young and dreaming of how my life could be, sure I dreamt of being married to a loving husband, but I just never really imagined to be a mom, much less a mom of 2 boys,.. that sometimes this reality is hard to believe.

Reality 1: Overwhelming Blues
It is hard enough to find nice clothes for boys, while the pink dresses are plentiful in wider aisles. But when you can actually find nice clothes for boys, why do they always have to be blue.
Reality 2: Boy Toys Overload
Car toys, robots, tractors, action figures, Hot wheels, … need I say more!
Reality 3: Boys are messy
Ever since Matthew was potty trained, I’ve taught him over and over to lift up the toilet seat when he goes. When he forgets, and I forget that he just recently used the bathroom when I use the bathroom, guess what I will be sitting on. Grrr! I know… I have to check each time… or I better get me my own bathroom!
And while diaper changing Baby Mark, I have to remind myself to cover him up. Little boys have the ability to spray it all over. I have to catch the wetness a lot of times just so not to get it all over… me.
I look forward to all the fun we are going to have. I look forward to confirming that raising boys in the long run is easier than raising girls … a lot more fun and less drama.
I love my boys!
