Girl in a Boy World

You Know You Live in a Boy World If...
5. You reach for the "hair tie" that is on the floor, hoping to pull back your sassy locks only to find that it is really a rubber LEGO tractor tire.
4. You become so accustomed to the toilet seat being left up and having to put it down when you go potty that you catch yourself putting it back up when you're done .
3. Where some people's small drawers and baskets contain little girl's hair bows, ribbons, bands, purses, shoes for every occasion and nail polish, your drawers contain: the capes that attach to superhero PJs, misc. LEGO pieces, car parts and the broken helicopter blade that your son is inexplicably attached to.
2. You know more than you ever wanted to know about The Flash, Green Lantern, Spiderman, The Hulk, Wonder Woman, and a dozen other super heroes.
1. You see a random mud puddle at the corner of a sidewalk & driveway- you know the kind with shiny, squishy mud and no rocks- and you think, "man that would be perfect to squish my toes in."

WHat a cute post! I love the one aabout the toilet seat! I only live with ONE boy and still fall in every once in a while in the middle of the night. I guess with 4 in the house, putting up the seat after you use it is necessary!

Elijah on urination: Pee is like horses galloping out of the gate. Once they get started you just can't stop them.
Elijah: If school were a human I'd give it a wedgie.
Elijah: I am like a hot rod and I just want to be a plain old Ford
Elijah on the fruits of the spirit: I've got them all covered except self-control. Its like a tiny green tomato and the rest are all big ripe ones. Especially love. Its like the biggest tomato we saw in the garden tonight.
