Three "warriors-in-training" and one princess who thinks she is.

I recently read a post by Vicki Courtney at Virtue Alert. Her title is Warrior or Wimp: How not to raise a Momma's Boy. If you have a son, you must go read her post! She has photo and video evidence that her sons aren't momma's boys.

I couldn't help laughing as I read. I'm pretty sure my guys AREN'T momma's boys! If you've viewed my photos over this summer you will probably agree with me.

I made Joel listen to the post and watch the video. I asked if he thought our guys would do the things hers are doing one day. He laughed and said he'd do it now! And then he listed his two partners in crime - Andy and Mike - who would participate in the mayhem with him.

I think I'm married to a warrior and he is training two (soon-to-be three!) "warriorlets!" It's no wonder my guys act like they do!

Vicki's sons are currently teenagers which got me figuring the ages of my own troup. When Sam turns 13 in October 2021 their ages will be 18, 16, 15, 13. Four teenagers in one house. Lord, have mercy!!

In the meantime, could someone please explain to my Baby Girl that she's a "princess-in-training" and NOT a "warrior-in-training?" She seems to think she needs to do everything her brothers do.

That was a GREAT post! I can definitely see Mike, Joel & Andy doing that - without a doubt!

Tell Joel that I am ready to go when he is! I know a few hills in Providence that would be ideal! I will be wearing a shirt, though, I know ya'll will appreciate that...maybe a helmet also.

Hey, what can I say? I'm still a big kid sometimes.

She's a little monkey isn't she! Good for her though for being adventurous...as long as she doesn't give Mommy a heart attack in the process though!
