Boys Will Be Boys
I don't have any boys yet, but when I saw this post I sighed a big sigh and thought, I want my boys to be like that. How fantastic are those first two pictures? I do consider myself a feminist (although most people misunderstand the word), and I just love the way those boys do not seem to adhere to any of the rules about what boys are supposed to be like. They are both energetic and artsy. They care about farming and reading. Hauling in the firewood, helping dad with the chores, and baking and drawing and writing. Yes, I've determined all this from a mama's blog. I'm pretty sure they're not perfect, but they do inspire me to let my boys be boys in whichever way they want.
