Living with tween boys!

Life with tween boys can be challenging. It’s definitely not for the faint hearted that is for sure! Here is a list of why and some tips on helping you through it πŸ™‚

  1. Their bedroom’s smell of linx, yet somehow they always manage to smell of B.O
  2. They are deaf! Seriously they don’t hear anything. I find the best way to get their attention is to dangle food in their faces. Very similar to the horse and the carrot.
  3. They struggle to live in houses. Their natural habitats are more dumps, tips, building sites. You will often find them
  4. Ever read the tiger who came to tea? Yes? Well the tween is the tiger! They eat all of your food and drink all of your drink, then disappear and never return (until you stocked up again)
  5. They need to be approached with caution. They are very lady back creatures (lazy) but they can also snap at the slightest of noises.
  6. They are magic! If you watch closely you can see them growing into young men, but a snap of your fingers and poof! They are 3 year old’s again.
  7. They can speak parceltongue. Yes really! They have an amazing way with words. If you are unfamiliar with the language parceltongue, it’s very similar to…. bullshit!
  8. They have special skin. It’s unlike anyone else’s. They can wear the same dirty clothes for days (weeks) and they never need to wash.

As you can see tween boys are amazing animalsΒ Β people but they are not the easiest to live with. If you have just given birth or have a toddler boy, enjoy while you can and don’t forget to pray every night (every little helps) because this is what will happen…..

    This really made me laugh, the linx comment reminded me of school! My brother was like this, I have no idea what Ethan will be as a teenager but I must admit you have made me a little scared ;0) #WeekendBlogHop

    hahaha! This made me laugh out loud! I thought a tween girl was bad….Nothing compared to boys….lol x

  3. Lol! This makes me glad I have a little girl – I girls come with their own list of difficulties, but at least body odour isn’t generally on that list. πŸ™‚

  4. I’m there – boys of 11 and 12 …. but I have absolutely BANNED Lynx from this house. I’d rather have the BO!!

  5. Mellissa Williams says:

    Ha ha I can relate to this. The old fashioned Lynx is just a deo but the new ones do have an perspirant too. It can still be a struggle to get my 17 year old to change his socks lol

  6. Rachel says:

    Ha I now feel sorry for my sister who had just given birth to twin boys and already has a soon to be 9 year old boy x

    If you think tweens eat a lot wait until they are teens! I have a tween who is very similar to yours but my tween girl is a million times worse. She’s a cross between a firecracker and a hormone. Great post, made me smile x

  14. Mina Joshi says:

    I only have one son but he sounds so much like your twins!! His bedroom looks like a war zone but he comes out looking immaculate every morning. Not sure how he finds everything!!

  15. VaiChin says:

    And I have all this to look forward to! Thanks for the heads up πŸ˜€

  16. I may have to freeze my son if this is what I am going to have to put up with!

  17. Really funny post. Thanks for the heads up – I’m especially looking forward to the scent of Lynx wafting through the house. Will definitely give my 3-year-old an extra big cuddle tonight.

  18. Haha this made me laugh especially the first one, then I felt a slight dread that I have all this to come and I’m going to have no idea how to cope with it. Talk about parenting being a learning curve! x
