- Boys are born obsessed with their penis. I thought this started when boys were older but it actually happens as soon as they exit the womb. For some reason boys are convinced that a penis snatcher exists and they must frequently check to make sure their penis is still attached to their body!
- The ability to make truck sounds and gun noises is not learned it is genetically engineered into their very beings. My boy has never heard a gun shot and has never seen a video or me open fire on a field of animals or people. However, he can now use blocks as guns. He also one day just began to make truck sounds out of the blue. This must be implanted in them and then just appears around 18 months of age.
- Again I always thought that as boys got older the selective hearing began. But no this also begins as soon as they enter the world. There are many times throughout the day that I could use a bullhorn to call my child back to me or ask him to pick up something and you would think that he was deaf. But no his ears work wonderfully well when he wants them too.
- I also firmly believe that boys are born with an adoration of their mothers. There is something about a boy hug that just melts your very being. I think it is the fact that they can be in the middle of using their fake guns to slaughter all of their little people animals and then they catch a glimpse of you and soften long enough to pat you gently or hug you tightly. They can be non listening penis players with weapons but they also are such kind and gentle souls. They are just amazing little beings!
So that's the truth about boys as I know it. Like I said I can't imagine my house with my noisy, destructive, rough housing, loving, wild, funny, silly, wonderful boy!
