Encouraging Heroes. You can be one too.

So, I’m in the middle of reading a blog post or two while the boys get their books out for afternoon lessons. TechnoBoy and The Mercenary have decided for some reason to work on their physical humor. This includes pretending to hit a post and falling to the floor, pretending to hit one another, and (my personal favorite) making vomit noises.

Being the only female in the house, I’ve been forced to mention many times that while certain males may appreciate rude noises and gestures, females do not. It’s a monologue they’re quite familiar with.

When the vomit noises started, I looked up and said something along the lines of, “The vomit noises…come on guys.”

That’s when TechnoBoy asked innocently, “What, they don’t sound real enough??”
