peepaw's wisdom

>> Tuesday, May 5, 2009

My maternal grandfather was an Arkansas rice and cotton farmer who raised 12 kids. Ten girls and two boys.

He may not have been a flashy man of the world, but he had old-fashioned common sense in spades.

PeePaw used to say:
"One boy is a boy,
Two boys is half a boy, and
Three boys is no boy at all!"

You know, I said just about the same thing on Friday night. My 16 year old son had a "group" physics project to do. At the boys house where they were working, there were no parents, so I stayed. When one of the boys offered that I could leave, I just smiled sweetly & said no. He then asked if I didn't trust them. I told him that while I was sure they were all, individually, intelligent, responsible young men that together they have the combined common sense of a brussel sprout.
This mama is no idiot.
