The Charm of Boys…


For all you moms raising boys, here are a few quotes to brighten your day:

From Calvin (of Calvin and Hobbes):

“I imagine bugs and girls have a dim perception that nature played a cruel trick on them, but they lack the intelligence to really comprehend the magnitude of it.”

“I like maxims that don’t encourage behavior modification.”

“You know, Hobbes, some days even my lucky rocket ship underpants don’t help.”

“As a math atheist, I should be excused from this for religious reasons.”

“I have a hammer! I can put things together! I can knock things apart! I can alter my environment at will and make an incredible din all the while! Ah, it’s great to be male!”

“The secret to good self-esteem is to lower your expectations to the point where they’re already met.”

“It’s only work if somebody makes you do it.”
