My Kids Were Here: Hunting for bears and chasing bad guys

by Melody on May 16, 2013


Each week I will be sharing a different photo, something that throws me right back into the little moments of joy that my kids create.  Something that reminds me.  My kids were here.

If you don’t know, I have two boys ages 2 and 4.  Their favorite activities are wrestling, fighting, wrestling and fighting, yelling, screaming, spitting, playing “bad guys”, hunting for bears (yes, you read that right) and chasing dinosaurs.  Everything at our house is loud and busy and smelly and sometimes a little rambunctious.

They created a game called “Underwear”, where the only rules are that they have to punch each other and yell Underwear! as loud as possible.  They also created a game called “Snatcher and Catcher”, but I have yet to figure out the rules to that one.  There is a lot of pushing.

However, even outlaws and “bad guys” have to take potty breaks.  It only makes sense to take the gun with you, just in case things get a little out of control.

Question of the Day: Is this just a boy thing?  Are they born with the need to get all sweaty and crazy and violent?  What are your kids favorite games to play together?

If you have a photo you would like to share, go ahead and send the photo to me at beautifulfrugallife {at} gmail {dot} com with the subject title “My Kids Were Here”.  Please include a paragraph or two letting us know what the photo means to you or what moment it represents.

My boys are now 10 and 8.
They still do all of this.
Yes, it’s all boy, and all normal.
I LOVE that you are wise enough to just appreciate and enjoy! I don’t think I did nearly enough of that.
