I have three boys and my middle son is my wild man. He's three and a half but says he's six. He sits in the wrong direction in his seat at dinner. When he grows up he wants to be a bank robber. Last year he told me that "reading is disgusting". He's usually carefree and doesn't worry about what others think. However, recently he shared something that broke my heart.
My house could easily be overrun by my kids. My three sons are 5 years, 3 years, and 8 months and we live in a 1600 sq ft house. Like many American children they have more toys than they need and they also like to play with all of their toys at once. They generate a constant river of adorable artwork and classwork. For these reasons, my house has kid-free zones.
