I have silly boys. They are funny and witty and artistic and creative and all the wonderful (and maddening) things that come along with that kind of personality. They surprise me with their creations. Sometimes I’m floored by the ingenuity. And then other times I just scratch my head and wonder. And then let out a raucous belly laugh. They are silly boys.
This one recently decided that he was going to make some super hero attire out of duct tape. He has made many things out of duct tape; shields, boots, helmets, swords to name a few. He decided this time that he needed some super hero undies, though I think ovies is a better name because super heroes have this strange habit of wearing their undies over their tights. Super heroes are gross. Here is the result.
Silly boy. Silly, silly boy.
I felt as though I had really “arrived” as a boy Mom when I consented to sewing a button onto this rubberized industrial super hero diaper. I’m convinced that only the deep and abiding love of a mother could compel someone to do such a task.
It’s the same kind of deep and abiding love that causes a Mom to consent to a Photoshop project like this one also.
For what mother could resist the request, “Mom, I bit a snowman into my apple. Can you make it look like a snow man in Photoshop?” What else are winter days for after all?
Lastly I have to share this years pictures of the boys and Grandpa. Last year it was the “Grandpa hats” on our front porch in Calgary. This year it was just our regular clothes on our front lawn in California. Crazy how different life is just one year later.
In other news, the information meeting about foster care last night was not very encouraging, to say the least, due to some discriminatory policies that were clearly stated against “evangelical” Christians. We were taken aback by the statements that were made and are saddened that we feel we are not welcome to help care for the children in our community in this way because of our religious beliefs but we are praying that God will make a way for us to do foster care at some point in his way and his timing.
