Okay, so I've been thinking about all the trouble we've had around here and I think I have figured out the problem!


I must be a MUTE! Except when it comes to food... they seem to understand me when I'm speaking about food.

So now, all I have to do is come up with an entire language based on food so that maybe I can explain the rules of the house and proper behavior for little boys... and they will understand what is expected of them.

It is probably more likely that all of your sons suffer from a chromosomal condition called "selective hearing". It is due to a defect in the Y chromosome and usually presents itself around the 5th-7th year of life. It will continue well into adulthood with strong resurgences in the teenage years, just after the 1st year of marriage and the retirement years.

No known cure at this time, but women across the world are working on the problem even as we speak!

Not that this helps, but I chuckled as I imagined you typing this post. I could just see and hear you exactly as you would say it out loud. Sounds like things are not going any better. I'll pray for your patience. :)

I laughed a bit, too. ;) And I agree, it MUST be that pesky Y chromosome. I cannot tell you how many people have come to me to ask if my boy needs to have his hearing tested. And when I did, it came back PERFECT. I am beginning to think that God gives mothers of boys special graces. If this is true, then He is really bestowing graces on you. (times three!) :) Hang in there!
