Training boys

Training boys

Ahoy there and hello again mates!

Today I am reading around and it seems we are all thinking about boys, men and the way they think and work. I gave up a long time ago trying to figure the male of our species out. All I got was a headache and more confusion. But I have come up with a short list of the most frustrating things my two dear darling knuckleheads do.

I live with two boys. The older one that I sleep with. (It’s my dear darling hubby you sick, twisted, perverted people.) The younger one, my dear darling son, I can’t exactly call my little one anymore because he’s taller than I am now. Collectively they are my dear darling knuckleheads and if I refer to that term of endearment, I have to answer the question of “Which one?”.

Here are just a couple of my constant battles with them.

Towels—-after a shower, they do NOT go on the floor, on the counter or across the closed toilet seat so you can sit and dry off whatever part of your anatomy it is you dry while there. (Really, I don’t want to know!)

Hangers—-dear darling son claims he doesn’t know how to put things on hangers despite my showing him more than once. Going into my own closet I discovered it is genetic, dear darling hubby attempted to hang up a t-shirt and had it completely off kilter. I have to give him credit for trying (shhh-don’t tell him said that!).

Aim—–when stumbling into the bathroom at night and not turning on the light, the last thing I want to do is step on a wet spot on the floor! I would rather step on a bug than a wet spot. Even in the daylight I will let out a stream of expletives that would make anyone blush. I have heard the knuckleheads ask each other “Who was the last one in there?” so they will know who the wrath is directed at. I know when they are outside they can spray and pray (thank goodness we live in the country) but not in the house!

Replacing things in fridge—-if someone takes the last bottle of water, etc out of the fridge, take some out of the pantry so they will get cold and don’t add them to the list until you check the pantry for reinforcements!

Dishwasher—-if you bring dirty dishes into the kitchen, check and see if the dishwasher has dirty dishes in it and if so put yours in. If the dishwasher has clean one’s, unload it and then put your dirty one’s in.

I have come to the conclusion that you can’t completely train them, you can only hope to manage them! Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go restock the fridge and unload the dishwasher!

    These things aren’t even in the top TWENTY most annoying things about my teenage son, but he’s guilty of these. My husband also leaves wet towels ON THE BED, but after punishment he’ll at least leave them on HIS side of the bed now. Progress?

    This was just stuff I observed in the past day or two!! Mine isn’t even technically a teenager yet so I still have a LONG way to go!! The one I forgot with the fridge is don’t leave one bite or one sip of something—FINISH IT already!! I’ve got more I was just pushed too far by things all at once! Maybe I’ll make a series out of it. I shouldn’t run out of topics in the next few years!!

    What? The most confusing thing is trying to figure women out! At least us men are simple. Not all that neat, but simple.

    Simple, yes! Trainable? I’ve had animals easier to train! The four legged variety as opposed to the two legged ones!! I think all males should have to live alone for a certain period of time to learn some of these basic skills. No maids, no dry cleaners, learn to fend for yourself!! I know this doesn’t apply to ALL men but really, is this too much to ask?
