I Am Surrounded by XY Chromosomes
And I am losing my perspective because of it! For the past 3 consecutive days I have been in high school gyms with several hundred wrestling boys and male coaches and dads and a rare mom. Testosterone is everywhere and I can't escape from it! Like last night, 4 of my boys were standing around the kitchen island eating pistachios. I didn't even notice that they were standing there only in their boxers until my daughter pointed this out to me. I don't even hear the constant references to bodily functions and odors. I expect if there is a ball anywhere someone will throw it. If there is a doorway with trim someone will try to jump to touch the top, if there is a cardio machine the boy will see what really happens at the very highest resistance level. Being back around my daughter made me realize what I am used to! I am happy I am going out tonight and wearing sparkles, make up and shiny nail polish! Happy New Year!
