It occurs to me that you might be trying too hard. They are boys; ruff and
tumble, bug chasin', couch jumping, adventure craving boys. They
aren't satisfied to sit with their hands in their laps and quietly admire
the sunset and the bats for more than 10 minutes. When they turn 8 and you and
they go into Cub Scouts, you should see that the program is wired for boys that
way. The very definition of kinetic energy is a boy in a blue uniform......I raised 4 boys and have been a Scouter for a number of years. Boy
behavior is a science.....
I realize I shouldn't even be reading this article since it doesn't
apply to me, a 39 year old never married LDS woman who lives alone will probably
never have the opportunity to experience motherhood. Count your blessings
someone asked you out and proposed marriage to you. That you get a nine month
break from menstrual cramps. Maybe the grass is greener on the other side. I
should be grateful God wants me to spend the rest of my life picking marigolds
because I will never be important in the life of another person as far as
eternal families go.
