Being a mother to three boys:
....can smell chocolate. They have bloodhound-like noses which can detect candy, even well hidden candy on the top shelf of the cabinet.
....think that if the cabinet does not have cookies, chips or Pop Tarts, they will starve.
....at the age of 13, revert back to infancy when they must be fed every 2 hours.
....can clean out the average pantry in half a day.
....give them a hose, and they will "water" every plant in the county.
....will gladly roll in a mud puddle right as you are about to go somewhere, making you late when they must re-shower and change. (they did that once when we were getting ready for church. I had to change all 3 of them, throw them in the bath, put clean clothes on them and get to church. We were 10 min. late. after that, the front door was always locked and they had to sit on the sofa until I was ready)
....develops a fondness for spaghetti-o's.
....are always hungry if you stop at McD's, even if you just have to use the restroom or getting a Coke.
....if you buy something for one kid, you have to buy something for all of them. (or else feel bad)
