I am Boymom, mom of 2 boys. That's who I've been for 16 years now. I eat, drink and sleep boy stuff, then write about some of it. Sometimes Pre-Boymom makes an appearance and reminds me that I'm a Girl, then I write about that too.
I'm the worst with giving practical gifts. I think I am too stingy with my money to buy things that are just fun or kind. Ben knows it too because I've only been given flowers once or twice for any occassion because I always tell them they are just going to die in a few days anyway. I don't think it was such a bad thing. Would he have liked flowers? I think no.
And...Happy Birthday. The FB gods did not make this known to me so I'm glad I saw your post.
