Because I Have Boys...

If injuries, blood, scabs or infection make you may not want to read on.

Boys like to document monumental moments in their when they leave half their knee on an asphalt driveway while visiting friends in town.  As a mom of five boys, I've learned that certain things boys find cool can actually be quite disgusting.

Like huge scabs.  That smile was nowhere to be seen on the day of the injury...but now, the battle scar is something to be proud of.  Watching the changing colors of liquid oozing out of the scab has become a new form of entertainment for Scribe and his brother.  Hearing the excitement in their voices when they pour hydrogen peroxide on the wound and watch it foam out of control baffles me.  Boys.  Gotta love 'em.  (But I don't think I'll ever understand them.)

  1. The girls here are just as bad...they love comparing cuts and bruises during basketball season and they are pretty proud of every one of them too!


I love to hear what you have to say.
