It's amazing how boys and girls interact differently with their friends.

For the most part, girls love to talk and laugh with their girlfriends. And with girls, you either click or your don't.

Not boys though. There can be thirty of them in one room and nobody even has to talk. They can just be with each other without filling any voids.

However, with most boys, they love to be active (like as in wrestling).

And there are no hard feelings, it's just for fun!

Here's the proof to back up that fun fact!

Here you have some of the teenage boys after VBS last week (at our church). Just hangin' in the cafe. No big deal. They are all mellow and just chillin'.

All it takes is ONE person to mix it up!

And this time, one of my son's (Daniel) is one of them in the mix! Here he is wanting to wrestle one of "big boys."

What you'll notice in the pictures is how everyone in the background looks unfazed by everything that is happening right in front of them. Amazing!

Once Danny gets going, it's hard for him to stop!


What do you think? Future wrestler?

Down for the count?

Tired yet?


They're just getting started!

And just so you know, there was nobody hurt. They all love to "play" like this. Everyone who walked by didn't blink an eye because they are just being "boys!"

Be sure to visit 7 Clown Circus for Wordful Wednesday

Stacy said...

My boys wrestle ALL the time!!! Yep, boys will be boys:)

Erin said...

My boys are just starting to wrestle makes me know the saying, "It's all fun and games"

I wish they would wait until they are older to do the wrestling!

Stephanie said...

I have that rambunctous activity in my house day in and day out! It drives me insane most days - I tell them to take it ouside - all the while Allie will sit and watch a movie. Oh how sweet girls are :)

LOVE this post!!

Happy Wednesday, Alicia!

Denise said...

I love this, lol

Lorilynne said...

I totally agree, boys can be friends just due to the fact that they're all boys but with girls it takes so much more. Which kind of sucks for girls sometimes, especially if you're the one that nobody clicks with.
My son is just about 2 and he's already starting with all that wrestling and rambunctious must be in the dna, lol

Liz Mays said...

What is it with boys and their need to throw down?!! LOL

Michelle A'etonu said...

this is exactly why I wanted a boy in the first place :) he's so cute!

Sara said...

LOL.. I love this. Boys will be boys. That is so true! My little ones ALWAYS try to fight the big kids too! It's so funny, and just shows you that boys are just wired different than girls. I would NEVER try to jump a girl that was twice my size. Or any girl for that matter. But, boys. They love it, they are so much fun! P.S - I loved your comment yesterday on my blog. It means a lot coming from you, there supermom!

Oh my! That is the story of my life with only 2 boys...can't imagine any more! All the time they are like that! Great series of pictures to capture the fun they had!

2003beachbunch said...

Awesome! Can I send my nearly 2 year old to get in on the action :-)

Bibi @ Bibi's Culinary Journey said...

My 5 year old nephew will wrestle anyone at any time. Just mention the word wrestle and his eyes light up,lol.

Veronica Lee said...

Yeap. BOYS WILL BE BOYS!! Love the pics.

Happy WW, sweetie.

Brenda said...

I love the way boys do that. My husband is having hernia surgery Friday because he got hurt wrestling with the boys ;) Sometimes things happen!

Sarah said...

It really is amazing how different boys and girls can be. I wish I had half that energy.

Buckeroomama said...

Looks like they had a blast.

You're right, I'm beginning to realize that boys play very differently than girls. :)

Serendipityissweet said...

Too funny. Looks just like my boys...always ready to rumble...for fun, that is.

Amanda said...

My boys do the same thing... I think all boys do. This post is a good reminder for me though.. cause sometimes I feel like saying, "Cut out the roughhousing!!" But I agree... boys will be boys. :)

Great pics... and yours boys are so handsome. :)

Beth in NC said...

Ha! That is cute! Boys and girls are so different!

Nina said...

This must be so natural for boys. My oldest son loves to wrestle around with his friends. Looks like they were having fun.

He & Me + 3 said...

That is just crazy...but so true. Too funny. Stunt man will walk past hubs and take him down for no reason. Just wanting to mix it up. LOL

Colette S said...

That is so true about the difference between boys and girls.

I love that they get to just be boys! It's too prevalent these days to try and take away childlikeness from kids.

Julie said...

I just love uncomplicated!! ;)

Muthering Heights said...

LOL, either that, or he'll be on a UFC fight!

Unknown said...

lol...I agree boys just seem to click. Danny reminds me of my brothers when they always wrestle with their friends and each other.
Great pics!

I grew up in a house full of womem and ended up in a house full of men. I could never quite see the fun in the wrestling, but your photo brought back the smile to my face and the memories of all the noise!
