“So, what is it like?”
People often ask me this question. Immediately after I disclose that I’m Mother to four children. And that they are all boys.
When they were very small, my answer was, “Busy. Very busy.” And that was true then.
Now that they range in age from five to twelve, my go-to answer is, “Busy. Loud. And smelly.” And this is true now.
If I really stop to put into words what it’s like to have four boys, I’d say it’s different from what I had imagined.
It’s less of some things and more of others…
