When life knocks you down, calmly get back up, smile, and say. "You hit like a bitch."

Boyhood daze.


The boys have a friend, she’s a girl, but no-one’s girlfriend. I’ve noticed some patterns with this friendship. When they want to see one another it’s all on her terms. They’ll sms and ask if she can come out to meet them on the oval, and she’ll say “Nah, not nw, am bizzy” (sms language) Then an hour or two will go by and she’ll sms and say “Ok, can com nw, meet me outside” then the boys leave WHATEVER they’re doing and dash out the door! I spoke to my sister about this and my BIL asked if I’m just figuring this out now. Figure what out? “That women hold all the power.” He told me that guys do whatever women want them to do! Ha! Was my first reaction, that’s SO not true! Then Pete put me in the picture, and I had to concede he was right. Doesn’t happen very often this being right thing!

My poor boys! I’m feeling a bit protective of them now that the female of the species yield so much power over them. I like being the female of the species, I really do, it’s so much fun. But I don’t like my boys being on the receiving end. Not so nice then. We had a good chuckle at my new found epiphany. The only thing is, how do I teach the boys to retain some power? They get all gaga over girls, and although I know it’s the natural order of things, it’s hard being the Mom who has to stand on the sidelines and watch this whole thing unfold before my very eyes. I think they need some tactics in dealing with this. I know I definitely do!!

  1. hey special wonderful lady, i understand the fragility of letting our special little bouts DESIRE other ‘women’. it is a fragile moment when we realise that WE have the POWER to set them FREE….We need to guard their little hearts (oh I love boys – they are so naive)..but we need to let them FLY!!! They are the future generation – let them be decisive and let them follow their hearts…LET THEM HAVE HEARTS – how many men have no hearts – I dont want my little (not) boy NOT to have a heart and just have goals …no, no, no – he needs to be real and WHOLE.
    And as for Pete – seems like all the boys in your family are flying….well you need to be the safe nest from which to let them spring off and arrive back on when they need to –
    Well done I am proud of you…lov you lots chick…..

  2. HEY!!!!! well i’ve actually spent time with said female ( girl) and at first she seemed very nice…but after awhile i found her to be ..um..how do i put this…a little controlling.she wanted all the “games” to be played her way.Now i was her age not tooooooo long ago..ok long but not LONG LONG…anywho..i dont ever remember being that in control…i was never the kind of girl that pushed anyone or ” bossed” people around.( we called them bossy boots). i was tought to play fair and ASK when my friends could come play!!!And if my mom or the other parents said NO it stayed NO!!!!! but that are just my humble opinion!
