    Love this! My husband is one of four boys born in 1981, 82, 83 and 87. They are the closest siblings I know of and have loved their life together, as I’m sure your boys will too. They’ve gone on to have their own families where all the children are daughters!! So it’s a bit of a culture shock for them!

      Oh how lovely! I keep reminding my boys they will be best of friends when they are older when they are in the midst of their ‘play’ fights! 🙂 xxx

    Love this, I adore my boys, they are thoughtful caring and complete mummy’s boys, feel blessed x

    • Kerry Gibb says:

      Ah, what little cuties! As much as my four may drive me crazy they are all lovely and I wouldn’t change them for the world! xxx

  3. ahhhh, the football one gets thrown at me all the time. (Ali, mum of 3 boys)

    The football team got so boring, we just tell people that our four boys are enough to make a boy band. Job done.

    I have three boys and live in Germany, but the comments from strangers are the same.
    As for them being easier than girls, I am with you on your point. I don’t know any girls that get up to as much nonsense as my boys.

    Love this post. The thing about boys is that it’s boisterous play one minute and tender hugs with mummy the next. I love that. x

    • Kerry Gibb says:

      I was thinking exactly the same thing earlier today as my three youngest took it in turns to climb on my lap for cuddles whilst we watched their big brother do karate. I will always love their lovely hugs 🙂 x

    Ha ha ha as a mum of 4 boys (11,9,5,3) I can honestly say I have heard every one of these comments countless times! Why do people assume that the only reason you have 4 is because you were trying for a girl?!? Xxx

  8. Kerry Gibb says:

    WOW………….. what are the chances that we both have the same name and 4 sons hahaha, although my boys are all older now, so hug them while you can because there comes a day when they are all taller than you and they pull away making it difficult to grab them for a hug, before they run out the door 🙂

    • Kerry Gibb says:

      Wow, that is amazing! 🙂 I know what you mean, my 8 yr old is already showing signs of towering above me! I really will make the most of those hugs! I will miss them when they are few and far between. xx
