Ek deel myne…kom deel joune!

Hats off to all the boy mommies!

Boys are the Best!

I am a normal mom to three boys. (Yip, that means I live with four men 😉  boys…and no, I wasn’t prepared for this! So I read a lot

( I  shout and shake my head in disbelief often too!….but…it was obvious! I needed help !!!!  And urgently!)

(I take no credit for the following lists: It comes from Dr. James Dobson’s: Bringing up Boysa species I do not pretend to understand…but I can now say, as if I am an expert:

“ Yes, boys will be boys!”


What is the point of a super large snowball?

What is the point of a super large snowball?


(the lists were compiled by American nine yr. olds)

Boys are better tractor drivers than girls.

Boys can take pain better than girls.

Boys are way more cooler.

Boys have less fits.

Boys don’t waste their life at the mall.

Boys aren’t afraid of reptiles.

Boys shave more than girls.

Boys don’t do all those ‘wiggaly movements’ when they walk.

Boys don’t scratch.

Boys get to blow up more stuff.

Without boys there would be no babies. (Now there is a new thought).

Boys eat with a lot of heart.

A nine year old girl called Elizabeth put down the following as some of the reasons why she thought girls are  better than boys:

I am ever so slightly biased (most of the time) that indeed boys ARE FAR MORE BETTER than girls!!!!

 Tell me: What do you think? (My friends always say boys  are easier than girls. I DON’T KNOW if I agree? (and I don’t have any girls!)

    Wanneer een van my seuns in die huis ingekom het, het dit gevoel tien kinders kom saam in….. maar seuns maak definitief makliker groot as dogters. En mens jy gaan nie daardie bekommernis van ‘n haelgeweer tyd hê nie.

    Hi Loli, It’s Wendy Gill down & over in the US, Texas to be specific. I laughed reading the list of different opinions boys & girls have of each other. I’m also a mom of two boys, three if I count my husband & I like it! I don’t know if boys are easier to raise than girls, but my guess would probably be yes. I say this based on the fact that I’m the youngest of four daughters & I had no brothers. That may not be enough to justify my opinion, but it works for me. Entering into adulthood, I began to pray for who my future husband would be & the family we’d have, I only ask God to give me what He knew I could handle & take care of best. That may sound crazy to some, but I believe in Gods word when he said he hears our prayers & will give us the desires of our heart. With that, I believe this is truly why God has blessed me with two silly & wonderful sons, blessing I count each day!

      Hi Wendy! What a nice surprise. Thanks for stopping by this African girl’s site!!!! I have definitely made peace with the fact that I was meant to be a boy mommy. Recently , as my eldest is going through his 13th year, I have started feeling a bit sorry for myself? (Sho, the testosterone in my home is getting a bit out of sync with my feminine heart!!!!!) and yes….It is like living with four boys!!!!!!! So, I am a Christian and believe the Lord’s grace is sufficient,but today it’s me asking you….please pray for me these summer holidays (our school year starts in Jan) that I may RELAX and enjoy the men in my life..before I ..uhm….someone 😡
      Stop by again sometime, I am trying to do a few more English posts x

    Ek was vir 7 jaar ‘n seuntjie-ma toe maak ‘n krulkopdogtertjie haar verskyning.Sy het my vroulikheid weer na vore laat kom.
    Seuns is Heerlik!!! Dogters is Heerlik!
    Wat vir my lekker is van die seuns, was dat as hulle die troppe maats huis toe gebring het, ek nie hoef te worry oor waar almal slaap nie…. net, WAT GEE EK OM TE EET????? En hulle is so maklik met die etery! Niks fancy kosse nie! Nee! Brood, Hot Dogs, Vleis, Eiers….. maklik!!

      Kyk, ek sien uit om skoondogters te hê? Hoop hulle eet nie fancy kosse nie 😉

Jolyt gerus saam !
