Let's hear it for the boys!!

A friend was bemoaning the fact that they were expecting “yet another grandson!” She wanted a little girl to dress in those “cute” girly clothes not just “bland boy stuff.” “Bland?” Has she checked out all the wonderful, creative and CUTE clothes for boys available from the many talented, artistic crafters out there in the world?

First thing I did was congratulate her on the new life she would soon be cuddling and cooing over. In all fairness, she was genuinely happy to announce a new baby was on its way but she had , momentarily, given in to her desire for a little girl to fuss over.

Next thing I did was point her in the direction of my shop, and showed her just some of the great CUTE little boy items I sell. (These are just a few of what I offer for both boys and girls!) Want to see more? Click the etsy mini on the left and you’ll be whisked off to my online shop.

Finally, I put together a collection of quotes and sayings reminding her how captivating that little guy will be once she gets her Granny-hands on him! Thought I’d share a few with you, too.
Let’s start with a true definition: "A boy is a noise with dirt on it." - Author: Unknown

Then, where can we find little boys?

“Boys are found everywhere -- on top of, underneath, inside of, climbing on, swinging from, running around or jumping to. Mothers love them, little girls hate them, older sisters and brothers tolerate them, adults ignore them and Heaven protects them. A boy is Truth with dirt on its face, Beauty with a cut on its finger, Wisdom with bubble gum in its hair and the Hope of the future with a frog in its pocket." -- Author: Alan Marshall Beck

What can we expect from little boys?

Erma Bombeck, mom to two boys, once wrote, “With boys, you always know where you stand. Right in the path of a hurricane.”

"Blue jeans and trucks,
Scrapes on his knees,
Running in the dirt
Being a tease
Making a face
Build and destroy
There’s nothing like
Just being a boy!"
Author: unknown

my personal favorite:

"Boys are God's way of telling you that your house is too neat."

So, to all you Moms (and Grannies) to boys (and girls!), take some time to do something creative before the kids get home today!!
