I live with 3 boys, 1 man and 2 dogs (they're girls and probably the only ones in the house who understand me!).
I always said God would give me 3 boys and think it was soooooo funny. "Hey God, it's not funny!"
As a younger woman, I wanted to be surrounded by boys clamoring for my attention, but NONE of them were calling me "Mommy."
I used to think burping sounds were appalling. Now I burp as loud as the rest of them, but I'm always sure to blame the dogs or the kids and "lecture" them on how inappropriate that kind of behavior is. They're on to me though.
I am the House Mother.
