Broken Pickets

There is a hole in the fence. A big gaping hole, where an Ethan-7yr sized child strangely decided to RAM his bike repeatedly. He has no explanation. He does have remorse, and that’s something. Later I was wondering what could have possibly caused this unexplained act of destruction. I had an uh oh sinking sort of feeling in my stomach, then quickly dismissed it. There is just no way that it could be related to the car ride home from school, just before the fence ramming session. During that car ride, I might have been singing Styx’s “Babe” in an especially obnoxious manner that the children found offensive. Followed by Linda Ronstadt’s “A Long Long Time” which of course required shaky voice, near meltdown type drama. Then my personal corny favorite, “Please Don’t Look So Pretty” by Dwight Yoakum. Well. I really don’t think that had anything to do with it.

Take it from me, BOYS WILL BE BOYS. Of course you already knew this, being married to a grown-up version with three mini’s, but just to rub it in a mite.

P.S. I would have done far worse to the fence should I have had to listen to such music at the tender age of 7.

I have not heard that song in a while…Styx. Babe. I like it.

Your boys are very cute. Very smart. And very funny!

I just found your blog looking for total transformation reviews. I love your writing and now my house is still a mess.So my question is what type of school is your daughter in ? There is a lot of controversy about WWASPS affiliated schools .Have you heard of them? Sorry if you have already mentioned it. If I read too much more of your wonderful blog I won’t get anything done today. Thanks for any insight you might have.
In Christ. Cindy

I just found this site and have never done the blog thing. I have 9 kids and somehow it seems like the people on this site are pretty real to life. I have several that have behavioral issues from a pre adoption life and have made TONS of progress but have a long way to go.
