Life With Boyz - A Photo Montage

Please keep in mind that these were all taken on the same morning in the Trenches.

Exhibit A: Pen markings on my wooden table in the sunroom:

Exhibit B: Underwear tossed NEXT to the hamper, not in it:

Exhibit C: The omnipresent unflushed toilet:

And for the finale, I give you Exhibit D: A crispy dried booger oh-so-carefully placed on the ledge of a bed. I cannot WAIT until all 3 of them are teenagers. *sigh*

(Full disclosure: Upon first discovery, I immediately got a tissue and removed the offensive snot dropping and was just going to let you use your imagination. But then I thought it would be a shame for you all to not have the TRUE experience along with me, so I actually PUT THE BOOGER BACK and snapped the pic. The things I do for my readers!)

(You're welcome. Heh.)

Monnik said...

Ha! You put the booger back and snapped a picture of it.

I love that! The blogosphere is awesome.

My house is still no tiptoe through tulips...but it looks a little better now that I know mine is not the only house with "conserves water" (my kids' excuse for not flushing) and stray boogers!

Jenn@ The Crazies said...

NICE!!! And we have the unflushed toilet in the kids bathroom ALL the time!!

You seriously CRACK me up! I just love boys!

Lolly said...

BOYS ARE GROSS! I'm so grateful that I have a girl. I hope that she isn't a slob.

My girls are borderline disgusting (flushing, clothes, mystery food), so you can't just blame the "boy-thing." Although my oldest son was the only one to make a collection of boogers on the car window by his car seat. There were about ten petrified to the tint before I found it.

workout mommy said...

your post CRACKED me up until I realized this is a glimpse into my future.

and then I started to cry, lol!

Yaya said...

Ok, the booger is so gross!

Michele Renee said...

Wait, why is the booger red?
The ones in our house were green and smeared on the wall next to the sleeping boy. Yes, I say were, because thankfully that does not happen anymore. Now they take showers longer than I do, and wear shoes that cost a lot more than mine, and have math homework too complex for me.

Ms.Mama said...

oh, putting the booger back disclosure made me laugh out loud. real talk.

Thanks for that.

Stopped by from SITS only a few days late.

Check us out.

Are You There Mom? said...

Ok, I'm actually laughing outloud! Thanks for keepin it real!

La Belle Mere UK said...

There is nothing on that list that won't happen when they are teenagers!

Hang on in there - in my experience they will probably never be fully trained but once they are past a certain age you can hand them over to some other poor, unsuspecting girl to carry on your good work for you!!

Rebecca is Thrilled by the Thought said...

So selfless and generous! To put the booger back for our viewing pleasure! Thank you- from the bottom of my heart! =)

Heidi said...

I can always count on you to not "fluff" the trenches stories here. SO REAL!

I am totally doing what "workout mommy' said too... Laughing so hard...then crying bc that is in my future! (I have a 17 mo. old boy)

Surrounded By Boys said...

I can totally relate!!! Boys sure are disgusting! I sometimes feel like a total alien in my house!

p.s. At least the yellow water means they are aiming pretty well. I'd rather see that than a puddle on the floor!

Rita/Fighting Off Frumpy said...

Hey, when did you sneak into my house and take pictures? :)

DysFUNctional Mom said...

Seriously, stop looking in my windows and taking pictures. It's rude.
Thanks for putting the boogie back though!

Jodie said...

Better a booger on the bedpost than in the belly:)

Jen said...

LOL! Love this post b/c I live this post.

Patois said...

What has the world come to when we're using boogers as props?!

gaelikaa said...

I just ignore these nasty little details. And carry on...

Suzie said...

You could have taken those pictures in MY house, any morning. I have three boys (and a baby girl who does not yey offend my sensibilities as a person) so I feel your pain sister! And good for you for making the most of the photo op with that booger!

Carla said...

This is probably the G-rated version:)

Lance and Jewls said...

Nasty!! I hate when people wipe their boogers or stick their gum under a desk or in random places...and then you innocently brush your hand against it and GAG! Ugh...shudder..

Tuesday Girl said...

I just gagged with that last picture!

Maureen said...

It doesn't matter where you live, your nationality, religion, or race... little boys (and girls) are consistent.

Sarah said...

GAH! Three boys! I feel you. I feel you all the way. The toilet. The boogers. The poop in the undies. The mysterious marks all over things, furniture, clothes, body parts. And, to top it all, innumerable views of penises, each.and.every.day.

GAH!

Tiffany said...

This is awesome! I have two boys myself so I feel your pain! I will have them learn to flush the toilet if it's the last thing I do!! lol
