Boys are like Puppies

Clogyrnach, an Awdl. That is the poetry form this week, courtesy C.R. Ward. It is ancient Welsh. So that's where they get all those Word Verification words!

Hush little puppies, please be good.
Stop your wrestling, wish you would
Get along for now.
It's easy. Here's how:
Bow wow wow.
Understood?


And if you know any little boys, you know they come up with crazy names for the things they do to each other (like an "indian burn," when we were kids). Ask them about "five star" and "corn dog."

I have two little boys who wrestle constantly. The day is not complete unless I've said "someone's going to get hurt" at least twenty times. They are totally like puppies, I swear.
