The Thing About Boys

I turned up a neat quote today on what it’s like to have sons:

“A boy is a magical creature. You can lock him out of your workshop, but you can’t lock him out of your heart. You can get him out of your study, but you can’t get him out of your mind. Might as well give up; he is your captor, your jailer, your boss and your master, a freckled-faced, pint-sized, cat-chasing bundle of noise. But when you come home at night with only the shattered pieces of your hopes and dreams, he can mend them like new with two magic words: ‘Hi, Dad!'”

– Alan Marshall Beck

Yeah, that about sums it up.
