Little Prepster

How adorable is this little prepster tear? I am dying over the accessories and now I'm on a mission to get some of this swag for my kids.  However, there is a high chance that they'd stand all but five minutes wearing either the aviator sunglasses or scarves.

Lately, I have been feeling the chaotic effects of having small boys.  The house seems to always be cluttered with toy cars, trains and balls and we call it a good day when the Hubs avoids stepping/tripping on any of them.  Second of all, there is no such thing as walking.  Running is the average pace to get from room to room, and on many occasions, one of them becomes each other's roadkill.   Lastly, there's always a lot of rough and very little gentle.  Ok, I am over exaggerating, but it does seem like there are far more bumps than kisses.  Whether it comes to banging toys on the floor, wrestling, or taking down mom (obviously, no complaints on showing mom some love), but as they grow taller and bigger, they don't seem to realize the aftermath of their uncanny strength.

All of these quirks come along with the boy territory, and frankly, I wouldn't change my family dynamic for the world.  But I tend to wonder what it would be like if the house were full of girls. Would it be any different? Would the house be any tidier or quieter?  Would chasing and rough housing even occur? Or perhaps this isn't even a question of a boy vs. girl could simply be the fact that kids will be kids.
