My boys are only 19 months apart from eachother. They already like to wear dedorant and be clean. So hopefully they wont get into the stinky boy stage.... On the other hand my oldest who is going to be 6 this month already likes girls. I am in trouble with that one

I can testify...........My 3 boys are 27, 31, and 33. My husband and I say we lost several dozen I.Q points from the time the boys were 15-25 years old. Somehow, magically, we got smarter again after they turned 25. You are always a parent, and life isn't always smooth, but you will appear intelligent and wise again one day! emoticon Whewwwwww!

I try to hold fast to the truth that a full and thankful heart cannot entertain great conceits. When brimming with gratitude, one's heartbeat must surely result in outgoing love, the finest emotion that we can ever know. AS BILL SEES IT

I agree about better than having a drama mutant girl, lol, and my step-daughter is 20. I think it just depends on when they reach that "point" where they stop being so self centered. I think I was a brat until I was 25, but my little brother is 15 and is much better.

Ha!
You will WISH you had stinky boy back... once he discovers girls and cleans up his act. Then there is all sorts of different drama and issues!

If my brother's any indication, they do get much better!

It is hard to stay on the right path when there is a teenage mutant stinky boy in the house. Tell me he'll get nicer! Lie if you must!
