Gender Bending

I was putting on my makeup, and thought I'd scare up some fun. My 13 year-old was in the room, and I asked him if I could put some makeup on him. He didn't even dignify my request with a response. He just gave me 'the look'. The "there's no chance of that. Are you crazy, woman?" look. I called the middle boys in and asked them. "Sure!" they chirped, bouncing up and down.They enjoyed it a little too much.

When the younger one said "I wanna wear a bikini!" I decided it was time to put an end to all their fun.
I told them it was time to take it off, and they begged to be able to go prancing around the neighborhood first. We took some pictures and then we washed off what their oldest brother called the "desecration". They'll always have the memory though.

It's disturbing how beautiful your boys are. Their uncle (my spousal unit) would bow his head in shame and definitely agree with your oldest. (o:

Wow, so there's still hope for me to have girlie time with the kids even though I have all boys too? I think I would have to draw the line with cross dressing past a certain age too. Although I have thought about buying a few little NB dresses just to see what it would be like.

Oh, and since we probably won't have our annual bumping-into-each-other on this special day, "Happy Birthday!" I know it's not today but I know it's very close!

Your boys are REALLY pretty. Good thing they are so secure in their masculinity.

They are a desecration to the family name
