Aiden has a friend from school over this afternoon for a play date. And wow, are they EVER playing. Playing in the basement. Playing in the boys' room. Playing in the living room. Playing in the kitchen. Playing with the gamecube. Playing with lego. Playing with bakugan. Pretending to be storm troopers/superheroes/aliens/fighters.
Boys? They play differently than girls.
I? Am a girl.
In fact, I am VERY girlie.
Boys confuse me.
I have lived with Doug for almost 9 years. I have been the mother of sons for almost 7 years. And yet? They still confuse me.
Why can they not play any single activity for longer than 8 seconds? Why is farting funny? Why must every word be YELLED? Why must every game have at least a tinge of violence? Why must high places be jumped off of?
They are having fun and I am glad.
I am playing tea party with Olivia.
Now THAT I understand :)
