Life - You got it wrong Professor Higgins

Higgins old chap, ask not "why can't a woman be more like a man but why can't a boy be more like a girl?" Having just survived nine days, unmitigated by any other adult presence, with my grandsons, eight and twelve, I'm shell shocked!

Tell me why a boy prefers standing on the back of a couch shouting "wiener butt" over a quiet game of Scrabble. Tell me why a boy prefers dragging his brother feet first down the stairs to create rug burns over his body to baking cookies. Dear Professor Higgins, just tell me why I am so exhausted by all this budding testosterone that I fall into bed at 8:00 p.m., huddle under the duvet and whimper in my sleep!

And this morning, explain why when I woke at 6:00 a.m. to a house devoid of boy sounds and smells it all felt so empty.
