Open letter to my sons

I love you, you know that. I also happen to know even if sometimes you dislike each other, you love your brothers very much. So please explain to me, dear hearts, why it is that your hands and feet seem to enjoy connecting at regular intervals with various parts of various brothers’ anatomy? You all speak wonderfully well and have enormous vocabularies – why can you not use words to ask your brother(s) to move? Why do you have to shove? And why do you then have to shove back?

Signed, your exasperated mother who wishes her sons could be more gentle yet still keep their masculinity apparent….

PS I am totally enjoying the hugs and squishes that I am getting throughout the day now that school is out, d’you think you could hug and squish each other lovingly too?

    Men are all behaimos, that is why Hashem gave them so many mitzvos, to tame the wild beast in them. Us women are soooo much better 😉

    Why won’t you wrap them in wrapping paper till camp starts?

  3. C’mon! You never heard of a “love tap”?

  4. Pushing and hitting each other is a form of male bonding.
    It’s stupid and exasperating, yes, but it’s normal.
