Dirty Boy

A little soap & water never killed anybody...

My daughter was telling me the other day that Ewan doesn't like bath time. That's probably not that strange, little boys have an aversion to being clean I hear. I wouldn't really know since we had girls and they practically lived in the bathtub from the time they were babies! Bubble baths, giving their dolls a bath, shaving cream artwork, tea parties in the tub...all good reasons to get into a hot soapy tub.

I was thinking about all of the things we worry about raising our kids. From the very first we fret if they don't sleep through the night pretty quick. Then that stage finally solves itself and it's onto potty training. You think that is never going to end, you change a million diapers and then one day they just start using the toilet. You now have all that extra money to spend that had been earmarked for Huggies! Pacifier's are another worry, our oldest GRANDson was 4 when he gave his up. Since he doesn't read this I feel comfortable sharing that information. It might scar him if it got around high school now that paci was his bestest friend! My point is, they don't stay little for long. And in a relatively short time they are little adults that sleep through the night, don't pee their pants and move onto other bad habits that make the baby years seem like nuttin.'


  1. When my niece Sarah (the light of my life) was little I would always get on her for having her hair falling in her face all the time...finally it dawned on me...who cares??? Pick your battles and believe me this one was not worth it...I am proud to say she is in her 2nd year of law school and yes, her hair stills falls in her

  2. G'morn, Joy ~ Love the picture ... it soooo depicts a little boy! You have stated this so well ... boys, battles, habits ... cute write.

    Happy Valentine's
    Have a great week!
    Hugs, Marydon

  3. Truer words have never been written. After raising three boys of my own, I can relate and look back with fond memories. I also can look forward to making new memories with our soon to arrive grandson.

  4. Boy is that ever true! And, don't you know that boys don't take baths...they just dust off! Come say hi :D

  5. You're so right, Joycee! My son already 13 and still don't really like bathing. Every now and then, I have to remind him to take his shower. Good heaven!
