Daddy Steve:  The other day Rhoda came upon Mikko, Tyler, and Blake working out in their 'gym.'

Rhoda: What are you guys doing?
Tyler: >Ahem<  We're doing boy stuff.
Mikko: Yeah, boy stuff.

Rhoda: Dancing?
Mikko: No!  Boxing!  I'm practicing my footwork.  You know...'float like a butterfly, sting like a bee.'
Rhoda: You look more like a Junebug to me.

Tyler: Why don't you just run along now.
Rhoda: Those are cool-looking gloves.  Can I try them on?

Mikko:  Oh, alright.  But you know, these aren't the kind of gloves you wear to tea parties.

Mikko & Tyler: Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!

Tyler: Mikko! Are you okay?!
Mikko: Huh? Wha' happen?
Blake: You look like you're seeing stars; like in the cartoons.

Rhoda: Sorry about that.  I didn't mean to hit you so hard.
Mikko: Um, what?  No, I just lost my balance.  That's all.  I barely felt it.
Tyler: Yeah, he barely felt it.
Blake: Looked to me like he sure felt it.

Mikko: Ah, hey, Rhoda, ah, let's not tell any of the others about this, okay?
Rhoda: Sure thing.  And just for the record: I'm not the kind of girl who goes to tea parties.

Extra-special thanks (with cherry on top) to Marti Murphy for the boxing gloves!

wow, Rhoda has quite the right hook!! I guess that "boy stuff" and "girls stuff" won't be quite so black and white anymore!! lol!!

I think Rhoda's helped the boys realised that girls are not all 'sugar and spice' and it's best not to make judgments based on gender.
If I was those boys , I'd be getting on my side just in case she's ever needed in a rumble! ;)

Yes, a valuable lesson learned. I think in time Tyler, Mikko and Rhoda could easily become good friends and partners in crime, which will mean even more grey hairs for Daddy Steve!

Ha ha ha ha! Never underestimate a woman boys - I think that is the moral of the story! Great to see the gloves getting used...although perhaps more supervision might be needed... do they have a trainer? ;)

A great post with Rhoda realizing boxing is more fun than a tea party. I bet the boys keep an eye out for her now. You never know what will be coming next. 😊 xxx
