You know your a mom of boys when...

I love having two boys. It's chaotic somedays, they are all about making messes (even the thirty year old), and you always have to expect the unexpected!!!! As I walked into the kitchen the other day, I looked up from doing the dishes to see this.  I just chuckled to myself and realized I have my own little Bo & Luke Duke! And that this scene is only something minor compared to what's to come!!!!
You know you are the mother of boys when you see the General Lee hanging from the cords of your kitchen blind. You know you are a super busy, mom of boys, when you leave it hanging there for a week!  The only reason it came down is because we had company coming for a visit. Couldn't let them see that the General was a part of my decorating theme.  Oddly enough, I couldn't show it to our house guests, but I can show it to the entire blogging world. The General isn't the only thing that hangs from the blinds.  So does SpiderMan, you know the one that McDonald's was passing out back during the Summer. Well, guess what... he's in Carter's room wrapped up in the blind cords and you've got it... he's still hanging there!  Heck, he's SpiderMan, that's what he's supposed to do right?  Maybe one day I'll free SpiderMan from his tangled web.  As for the General Lee, well he's back in the yard where he belongs, covered in black dirt! 

So you don't have boys? If you have little princesses running around your house, if you find Barbie hanging from the blinds, or my little pony, or strawberry shortcake.... you might find a reason for concern.  Or maybe you won't. Just do like me, leave it hanging you've got more important things to do!

Thanks for following my blog Jennifer! Great to meet you. This post cracks me up! In our house Woody and Jessie (Toy Story and Toy Story 2) hang from the family room blinds as well as Luke Skywalker. They have been known to hang out awhile. So funny to read that yours do the same thing. I look forward to keeping up with your blog!

I am the only female in a house of boys. The things I find around the house sometimes...a lego man zipline from the top bunk to the dresser was my favorite!
