My little nature boy

22 May

He loves his ant

He loves it not

boys and trees

spraying the ants on trees

I’m getting Rocco ready in the bathroom and Rockford walks in with an ant on his finger.

Rockford: “Look mom!”

Me: “Ugh!”

Rockford: “What’s wrong? It’s not a spider, it’s an ant and it’s beautiful and it tickles your hand.”

…Aww, I thought. He really appreciate nature and little creatures.

10 seconds later…

Me: “Where’s your ant?”

Rockford: “I killed it.”

So much for my previous thought, he’s a boy alright.

    I love your site here about your boys. I’m a retired Montessori teacher and a mother of five boys. They were the fun of my life but I’m happy to know them now as grown men. You might enjoy my book: Montessori – Living the Good Life or check out my website: It is unique.
