These boys don't care that dad isn't sitting playing a game! They love that this dad lets them 'GET' into his business! They want to be part of dad's world. Dirt, grime and all!
Yes, our Saturdays are anything but relaxing. But we will do what needs to be done with the kids in tow! We divide, conquer, and get some little one on one time as we do the normal daily routine of keeping a household of 10 running. Trading off kids to go on an adventure of a store here, return there, or the task of changing the oil on the car.
I am quite sure the boys enjoy the ride with dad a little more than me. Call me crazy but the discussions of fogging someone (apparently that is code word for fart), bathroom talk, and burps are not my thing. We discuss that what they get to do with mom and what they get to do with dad will be vastly different. What can be laughed at and discussed with boys MUST change when girls are present. We still don't allow unwholesome conversations. But I haven't met a boy yet, young or old, that doesn't laugh at the humor that only BOYS can enjoy!
