Okay, I’ll just come right out with it.
I LOVE raising boys!
I never would have guessed when I started this motherhood journey that having sons would be so much fun.
Sure, they’re noisy (super-noisy!) and messy and energetic, but boys are awesome too.
And you know something? Now that our oldest “boy” is no longer a boy – but a young man of 21 years – I’m more convinced than ever that it is more than worth it.
The last time he was home for Christmas and he put his strong arms around my shoulder and told me he missed my hugs . . . . well, there’s nothing quite like it.
Maybe you’re a mom who is in the “thick” of raising a son and could use some encouragement? Some ideas on how to make the most of it? How to reach his heart?

I love raising boys, don’t you?
