A while ago my cousin Gretchen came over
with her 3 boys.
That makes 6 boys ages 7 and under.
We managed to squeeze in a bit of chatting
and a cup of tea.
And a lot of referree-ing of car play, sharing toys,
and yelling out,
"Be careful!" and "Don't stab at each other!" and
"I don't care if it's a light saber!"
Things like that.
Lots of testosterone with 6 little boys.
Every once in a while we need an estrogen fix.
That's why we drink tea and buy hair clips.
And Gretch, being the fantastic cousin that she is,
brought me a special treat.
Lip gloss. Shiny. Pearly. Girly.
And it tastes like mint.
It actually freshens your breath
so you feel sassy and like you have good dental hygiene,
all at the same time.
It's a win-win gloss.
We're thankful God gave us our boys.
We love our boys.
We love them so much we could eat them up with a spoon.
But we do like being girls.
And nothing makes you feel more feminine than shimmery lips.
So on extra-testosterone-laden-alpha-dog-male-dominated-days,
we're thankful for minty lip gloss, too.
