I know that my birthday is two months away and I know that I usually don’t for anything, but this year I think I need a Leatherman for my purse.

Raising boys requires different tools that raising girls. Little girls you make sure that you have bandaids, nail clippers, and chapstick. Boys? Bandaids, wet wipes and a Leatherman. I have thought to myself on two different occasions this week, “Man, a multipurpose tool would come in handy right about now.”

I have been having a grand time with these two rascals today.  It reminds me of the days when Grace and Lydia were little.  They would play for hours together and hardly ever fight.  Jack and Max only had a few scuffles but then they were strapped in the cart at Home Depot  and little boys do much better if they can’t touch each other.
