Boy toys can be fun!

I am a girly girl.

I love the fact that I have 3 daughters.

I can not imagine my life if I had 3 boys.

When I walk through the boys' section of clothes or toys, I get completely bored.
seriously bored, within seconds.

I am so sorry if that sounds so rude to all you Mother's of boys.

I just love girly stuff.

My whole house would be pink if I didn't have a husband.
seriously pink.

We were at Mcdonalds the other day.
Yes, my kids eat there.

I ordered 2 happy meals. They usually ask if I need a girl or a boy toy to go with that.
They didn't ask this time.

As the girls ate on the way home.
Yes, my kids eat in the car.

One of them asked what the toy was. I casually looked over at the bag and said,
" Oh I don't know some ugly gray and black thing!"

"ewwe." one of them replied.
"Yeah, ewe." I agreed.

When we got home daughter #3 took the toys out of the bag and went and found her sister to open it up and see what it was.

Next thing I knew I heard laughing and running and jumping coming from their room.
As I went up to investigate, I was attacked!

Turns out the ugly gray and black thing was a nerf gun of some sort.

Turns out it was the best toy Mcdonalds has ever given!

It has been 6 days and this thing has been played with non stop.

Either boy toys can be fun or my daughters are having a little too much fun trying to kill eachother!

I don't believe folks who say they don't eat fast food. :) Every mother on the planet was saved at least once by a Mcmeal.

That is too funny. I was terrified when I found out we were having a boy. I didn't know what I would do with one, but now -- more than four years later -- I actually like the boy toys better! I love putting together train tracks and playing baseball outside. Oh, I still love the tea parties and the dress-up, but the boy stuff is way more fun than I ever expected.

On another note, we could never eat at McDonald's because of Zach's food allergies. When he outgrew them last summer, I decided to take the kids there. It was hysterical. In the midst of this crowded restaurant, Ellie wraps her arms around my neck and emphatically declares "THANK YOU, Mommy! Thank you for bringing us here!! It's just so ... so WONDERFUL!" :) I'm sure the people around us thought me un-American. My kids were 5 and almost 4 and had never been to McDonald's!! LOL.

Yes, boy toys can be fun!
And having boys can be fun, too. *grin* Loud and chaotic. But fun.

Honestly, one of the best things is seeing my husband return to boy-hood momentarily when he plays with our boys. I remember looking out the window when he was setting up some little explosive thing to show them. I thought, He's just like them! He's a little boy in a man's body!
It was fun. *grin*
