Boys vs Girls

Well, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to prove boys and girls are extreme different. I love experiencing both worlds. As most of you know, I am one of three girls. Josh has one older brother. Neither of us “got” each other quite like someone who comes from a mix of boy and girl siblings. To witness the stark differences day in and day out is fun! And eye-opening.

The girls at this very moment are at a sleepover with two older girls who are discipling them. It started as an hour get together; they said they needed more time, and then they called to see if the girls could stay until 8:00, and then the call came for them to please just stay the night. So very sweet! And if there is anyone I’m more than happy to have influence my girls, it’s the girls they are staying with tonight! It feels weird without them here, but Mack is keeping me busy! First of all, he has talked just about non-stop. I’ve had to “guess what” about 5,237 times.

I was putting up lights in the girls room and tying tulle around the lights. Mack decided he would be ninja man and blow need darts at me. He told me everything I was supposed to pretend to be doing or saying. Cracked me up. 20130917-221154.jpg

The room turned out beautiful despite the darts that were thrown at me. 20130917-221244.jpg
He got the ninja hood and gun at the Dollar Store. He told Josh all about it on the phone and sort of told on me with, “Yeah, Dad, I got my ninja stuff at a new Dollar Store!! It’s the one next to Hobby Lobby!!”
Great. Thanks for that, Mack.

We ate a good meal together and had cookies and milk for dessert.

He told me he was making ME out of the cookies, but he couldn’t finish because he didn’t have enough cookies to make my hair.

He watched Bonanza while I cleaned up the girls activity room.

And earlier in the day we went hunting for bugs.
Never a dull ( or quiet!) moment with Mack.

So when I get the girls back tomorrow I’ll actually take some pictures of them doing their own girly things—you know, reading and coloring and fixing their hair.
I love both worlds!
