Bad Words

Dad- Talmadge why are you putting soap in your mouth?

Talmadge- Because I'm saying bad words.

Mom- What bad words are you saying and why?

Talmadge- "I'm downstairs with Zoie and I keep saying bad words"

Mom- Why?

Talmadge- In frustration "I can't stop saying them, I think something is wrong with me."

What an honorable boy I have. Maybe I need to change the soap flavor.....although it seems to be working.

Raising little boys

So the last few weeks I have been studying and trying to learn as much as I can about little BOYS. They are so different and to say that Talmadge is a handful is a huge understatement. I am up for any books or ideas on teaching and learning about how to raise boys. They are both such a delight to me in two totally different ways, and I'm so grateful to be their mother even though it is extremely challenging at times. I'm learning to pray and search the scriptures for patience and help, but I need all the help I can get, so give me ideas :"}
