You are worried about seeing him spend his early years in doing nothing. What! Is it nothing to be happy? Nothing to skip, play, and run around all day long? Never in his life will he be so busy again. ~Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Emile, 1762
Boy, n.: a noise with dirt on it. ~Not Your Average Dictionary
There comes a time in every rightly constructed boy's life when he has a raging desire to go somewhere and dig for hidden treasure. ~ Mark Twain
Of all the animals, the boy is the most unmanageable
Boys are beyond the range of anybody's sure understanding, at least when they are between the ages of 18 months and 90 years. ~ James Thurber
Boys are found everywhere -- on top of, underneath, inside of, climbing on, swinging from, running around or jumping to. Mothers love them, little girls hate them, older sisters and brothers tolerate them, adults ignore them and Heaven protects them. A boy is Truth with dirt on its face, Beauty with a cut on its finger, Wisdom with bubble gum in its hair and the Hope of the future with a frog in its pocket.
~Alan Marshall Beck
I am so thankful that I am blessed to be the mother of 3 girls....
and a boy!
