Put 'Em Up

The boys, Evan in particular, are fascinated with boxing. {Insert mommy groan here}. It all started with Wii Sports and then Daddy got a great deal at a tag sale for a real punching bag for the basement. Evan is desperately waiting for Daddy to buy him some boxing gloves to go with it. The whole thing seems counter-productive to our efforts of trying to get them to stop hitting each other, but maybe I'll be wrong and they will learn that it is only appropriate to hit the bag and not people. I'm chuckling inside at that thought too, no worries.

Keeping with the spirit, today while doing a little shopping for Maggie's birthday, Roman found an outdoor, water-spraying boxer. It's one of those toys that pops right back up when you knock it down. The boys LOVE it and it really is pretty funny to watch them try to knock it over. 

Oh to be a mom of boys. I'm so excited to see how different the interests will be as Maggie gets older. But with two older brothers, she may end up into boxing as well. But you better believe I will be doing everything I can to make sure that doesn't happen!
