What Are Little Boys Made Of?

“Snips and snails and puppy dog tails, that’s what little boys are made of…”

If you’ve ever wondered what it means to be classified as “All Boy”  here are a few of my requirements.

#1:  Magnet to mud. 



(Like Jaiden doesn’t like it just as much as him)


#2.  We do things like this:


…and this:


…and this:


and my mom knows it’s not an accident, because we wear a look like this:


#3.  We ride hard and we ride fast.  We tip our rocking horses over forward sometimes because it terrifies our mothers.  We also like to bulldog anything that happens by…like dogs. Or sisters.

#4.  We act innocent and look like this:


But my mama knows better. She knows that before she got this cute picture, I probably had my puppy in a full nelson or did a belly flop on her.

Still, she wouldn’t have it any other way.


I’m her little helper and I’m good at making her laugh.

Sweet pictures of your precious little boy...I think it's so neat that they get so interested in the things their dad's love at an early age. Bryan was an athlete and played many sports. Brooks loves them all and my house is full of balls, golf clubs, etc!! :)

I know all about those boys. Love 'em!!!

I have a picture of Tyler, when he was about that age, helping Dave out in the garden. He was filthy... that first pic of J reminded me of it.
