Our Life

Boy imagination station

It’s amazing how different boys think compared to girls.This morning as we were getting in our full dose of sun, my 7 year old got to thinking;
“Mama, the sun feels like an invisible bath.”

“It’s nice and warm and it’s really cozy all over my body.”

“Maybe we could do this instead of a real bath.”

At this point I am giving my boy the mama side eye look. Why am I so surprised that a little almost 8 year old boy would want to completely skip baths and just opt for sun bathing Instead?…. Hmm; well I am guessing because he is a boy!

Wow….This little guy is trying to play with my mind. Of course if he had to choose between being soaked in real water and sun bathing, my guess would be sun bathing which obviously comes with no splash of water.

It’s amazing how detailed kids think. I mean, my little guy has a perfect plan ready to literally blow my mind away. 

Maybe I will give in to this idea one day when that one sense of smell stops working too well.

But for now, I think this mama will stick to the original plan….A real water bath๐Ÿค”.

All in all, I love my little guy, he brightens my days, he is literally sunshine into my days and I must say I am one lucky mama.

    1. Ohhhh yea. I always remind him that I have once played his kind of tricks. I think kids tend to think that as parents, we have never been kids? ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  1. What a gorgeous clever little boy you have – and such a cheeky smile!! Also, how poetic – ‘the sun is like an invisible bath’ – very impressive simile for such a little man!

      1. Knowing the danger of not taking a bath has never stopped a boy from skipping one, haha. However, it will grow on him, surely. Maybe even by 15. Good luck.

  2. So cute๐Ÿค— Both of my boys tried to negotiate baths. It does seem to be a boy thing, unless you get a “tomboy” as I did, and then they all come up with reasons that they dont “need” a bath. Eventually, mine just started to accept the fate of a daily bath๐Ÿ˜†

  3. Aren’t there two sides to this picture? Doesn’t the same boy who opts for a sun bath go wild in a tub full of water, especially if there is something or someone in the room that should absolutely not get wet???? Just wonderin’.

    1. Thank-you sis. Raising children is a real life story in itself. I am amazed at how children get to thinking that we as parents are not aware when we are being tricked ๐Ÿ˜‚. They probably think we are too old to see through their tricks ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿค”

    1. Ohhhhh. He is supper smart at sweet talking me when he is trying to get his way๐Ÿค“. I always have my spy glasses ready to read between lines ๐Ÿ˜‚

  4. hehe..in our day we’d just race with mama around the house till she’d decide to use her wit and just wait for us to return for supper…but ur boy here? hehehe..is shaaarrrpppp..u should get him icecream for such thinking

    1. Lol. Absolutely. I have 3 little brothers that were exactly like that. We always knew that the smell of a good supper would lead them right back to us๐Ÿ˜‚. Good memories…. Ofcourse they are grown men now ๐Ÿ˜

    1. Yes!. Our little girl is Michele with a single L. It’s amazing how many times we are asked it’s a single or two Ls. I thought I had them figured out with my little brothers, but I am quickly realizing that infact I am in for a ride.๐Ÿ˜

      1. I know about the two “LLs” Most of the time people spell my name with two. On raising boys, I think you are in for a fun ride! Girls have so much drama, but boys are just boys.

      2. Hahaha. You are right about that. We have one of each and we can already tell. However, there’s beauty in either and I am thankful for that.

  5. Delightful! (Both your post – whole idea of invisible bath- and that smile coming from atop the car) Thanks for stopping by StepsAndPauses to lead me here.

  6. “Maybe I will give in to this idea one day when that one sense of smell stops working too well.”

    That made me laugh out loud! Thank you for that, Rhythm!

  7. Aww what an adorable kid! You are such a beautiful mama. Thank you for this post. Made me smile (and I was just thinking about how men and women think differently, so this is perfect โค ) Blessings to you and your family –Debbie

    1. Thank-you Debbie. You are so kind. Definitely boys think differently when it comes to little things like showers… Atleast I have been blessed to see this in my own son compared to our little girl.
