Boys will be boys. or girls.

While mommy's working, you can sit on the floor behind her and play with tractors.
Very boy-ish.
John Deere are the only kind that'll do.
They must be green or they don't count.
Very boy-ish.


You make grunting and growling tractor sounds.
Very boy-ish.
All while being naked.
Because, well... that's what boys do!

And then you start into some naked crafting.

And figure out that red Sharpie marker can make your toenails look just like mommy's.
Not so boy-ish.


The polka dots down the legs? Just for fun.


You can't figure out why mom is laughing so hard and taking pictures.
But whatever mom.
It's back to tractor time.
Very boy-ish.


By the way, Sharpie on toenails will last at least 2 weeks.
Through swimming pools, playing, bathing.

Boys will be boys. Or girls.

That's hilarious. You'll have to save those pics for blackmail later. :)
I love the pics I have of my boys as they're in that delightful stage of not caring if things look boyish or girlish. They grow out of it much too soon.

Do you put the dots on your legs when you do your toenails, too?

Oh my gosh he is too cute ( course you already know I could just squeeze him and bring him home with me
: )). well, he may grow out of the toe polish phase but the naked boy stage... hmm probably not : )
Have a great day!

oh my goodness...he is so sweet & silly. Has he perhaps seen a kid with chicken pox...or bug bites on their legs?

BeckyKay said...

The polka dots really set off the toenails. I may try that next time I give myself a pedicure...

The Fifth Street Mama said...

Oh how sweet! My boy refuses to have his toenails colored but will happily play dolls with his sister with out a thought to whether it's a boy thing of a girl thing:)

Sooo so true! My boy LOVES tractors! I've posted about it a few times on my own blog. And yes, they have to be green or it doesn't "count". I'm not even sure if boy ever outgrow their love for tractors either... my lovely husband still "plays" with them. Fun photos!
