Connie at Smockity Frocks has linked to a wonderful discussion about boys. Read through her post but also the different links to Cindy at Dominion Family.
Raising sons is such a great blessing but also comes with such great responsibility. As their mother I try to be mindful of the goal of raising men even when they are still such young boys.
Just the other day we had a fabulous discussion about bugs and bringing them to a timely demise and with some level of bravery (even if it involves one of his boots and a paper towel). I have given him the ultimate authority over unwelcome critters and reminded him that we (his sisters & I) are in need of his services. He is our little man after all ;)
I love reading through the discussions in the comment section, so don't miss those. Not having friends nearby with older boys it is encouraging to hear the advice of the momma's who are raising sons and it helps to be reminded that it is a "good" thing for my boy to HI-YA! his way through life.
