They look cute but can they hear?

Is it a boy thing or is it just my kids? I am not sure if they don't hear or they just don't listen but they are driving me crazy! Last night, I handed them each a freshly laundered and pressed uniform shirt and said, "Put these out to wear to school tomorrow." When I went into their rooms to say good night, the shirts were nowhere to be seen. BOTH of them had put the clean shirts in the dirty clothes hamper! Now, if I could only get them to put the clothes that are actually dirty in there! UGH!

Thank you for all of your sweet comments, prayers and e-mails. I still do not feel great but slowly I am feeling better. I did not eat a meal for week! I managed some soup and banannas but not much else. My stomach was really bad. I am still waiting on some test results so I would still appreciate some prayers.

  1. I think it is a boy thing, I have a son who suffers from the same problem! Selective hearing is what I call it! Glad you are on the mend, good thing Thanksgiving is on the horizon, we need to "fatten" you up! Ha Ha!

  2. I am not sure it is just a boy thing and know the exasperation that can cause.

    Lindy can hear stuff three counties over but when it comes to executing directions---aarrgghh...

    You know I'm praying for you!!! Can you tolerate Ensure or Boost?

    Take care of yourself!

    Love,
    Lisa

  4. I will continue to keep you in my prayers. I had some issues after my first trip to Guatmeala so I know a little of what you are going through. ugh. Its so hard to be strong to take care of busy children if you feel bad.

    The shirt episode sounds like something Ryan would do. Alot of times for Jacob I will say look at my eyes and pay attention when telling him to do something like this so he doesn't mess up. It is a boy thing I think.


    Praying for you...

  6. Girls do the same thing. I am just glad to hear that it's not just me. I will be praying for faster healing and helpful test results. We have a saying in our house when things don't go as planned, "It is a good thing your cute!" This applies to hubby as well.:)

  10. They are true BOYS! I had a mountain of laundry yesterday, and some of it was clothes that really wasn't dirty. They just don't want to hang it up -- it's easier to just throw it in the laundry basket! ;) Glad you're feeling a little better. I'll continue to pray for good health.

  11. The jury is still out on my boys, but I don't think they can hear.

    Glad your feeling better.

  12. Boys need help. You are such a good mom. I was thinking about having a stackable waher dryer installed in my daughter's closet so that she could do her own laundry.

  13. So glad you are feeling a little better.
    Your boys are soooo handsome even if they cant hear. :)
    My son is the same way. I am glad mine is not the only one who doesn't do what is asked.

  14. Boys don't hear and neither do men in my opinion! They have a disease called "selective hearing". If I were to whisper the words "anyone want some ice cream " in one room, Cody would hear it as if I had used a bull horn to announce it. However, if I had said loud and clear "do your homework", I would have gotten a "huh? I never heard you tell me to do that."

    Still praying for you to feel better!

  15. Yes, it is a boy thing. I actually had my oldest son's hearing re checked at one point and they said it was fine...just that selective male hearing gene! As far as the laundry goes, half of what is dirty, they put back in their drawers and half of what is in the hamper is clean...I just chuckle and pray their wives can tolerate it one day!
    A friend has suggested that I let them start doing their own clothes...I am not sure that I am ready to give up control in that area!!

  16. I love this picture! Your boys are so handsome! I do believe boys, or men in general, have selective hearing or at least they do at my house!

  17. Hi Kimber! You brighten many of my days and I would be honored to continue praying for you! Hope you are better soon! Your boys are so handsome!

  18. Oh my word! My boys do the same thing. It drives me nuts to find clean folded laundry in their hampers. They sure are cute though.

  19. I think all children have selective hearing. :)

    Will be praying you feel better soon and find out what's causing this.

  20. Kim,

    You know I'm praying. I am glad you posted an update. I am sure everyone has been very worried.

    You also know how wonderful I think your boys are. Maybe they misunderstood? Not really sure what they were thinking there.

    At least they don't steal your mouse and close your computer like some other cute little peanut we all know and love. ;)

    So glad you're feeling better. I will talk to you soon. Got the TB's today, so I'll let you know how they work out.

    Love,

    Danielle
