… and call your mother

Slugs and snails, And puppy-dogs’ tails …

Yes, raising boys is certainly an adventure of the good and the grimy.

I have two boys, each more different than the other while being so much the same. Chalk and cheese. Very much so.

Thankfully I don’t have to learn the best way to plait hair each morning, but I do have to know how to kick a football.

And along the way we deal out lessons in respect and sportsmanship, on friendships and manners.

I love the simple lessons in this ~ 20 things a mother should tell her son ~ which I came across via Facebook.

Some are for now, some will be put away for later.

This week though, they should remember this:

Use careful aim when you pee.  Somebody’s got to clean that up, you know.

And I hope they never forget this:

Remember to call your mother because I might be missing you.
