There’s Boys in My House


There are boys in my house – and scuffed up shoes
And 200 papers in various blues.
There’s Bob (he’s a builder) and Thomas the Train,
There’s a fireman coat to wear in the rain.

They have cars on their shirts and frogs on their hats
There’s a glove and a ball and a red plastic bat.
There’s dirt on a face and a smudge on a nose;
Grass stains on knees and sand between toes.

There’s bathtime at night with bodies to scrub,
And when we’re all done there is dirt in the tub!
There’s band aids and bruises and curious bumps,
There’s smiles and laughter and sometimes there’s grumps.

There’s odors most icky; there’s boogers so green
There’s more yucky things than I’ll ever get clean.
There’s piles of laundry; there’s stories at night;
There’s bedtime and bathtime and dinnertime fights.

There’s cars and there’s trains and there’s books about trucks
There’s Scoop, Lofty, Dizzy, and Travis, and Muck.
Sometimes there are bugs, and sometimes there are frogs;
Sometimes they are lions, or dinos, or dogs.

There are cute little vests and darling neckties
Dragged right through the mud – oh what a surprise!
There’s running and climbing and jumping and falling
And laughing and crying and hugging and brawling.

And rolling and losing and finding and creeping
And whining and stealing and sometimes there’s sleeping.
There’s tantrums and time outs and extra loud noise –
There’s love in my house shaped like three little boys.
Thanks Aunt June for the cute wagon!! We loved it. Rylen was having so much fun. Until it came time to get all 3 on one picture! And then he was done. Jevan was the hardest, but I was pleased with what I got. I had my camera on the wrong setting, again, so it took lots of editing to get them to look nice. But now I’ve got my Christmas pictures done. And that makes me happy!!
