Let’s talk about what is real and relevant…to me. Thank you for indulging me.
I am just days away from giving birth to a baby boy. I have 3 girls, and thus, only girl raising experience here. Growing up, I always imagined myself a mom to boys, so the 3 girls was a bit different from my life plan, but life is usually different than we plan.
As I go about my “nesting” I have a lot of time to think. I am realizing that I really don’t know much about raising boys. Granted I was the third oldest of eleven kids and the last 5 were all boys, so I have had my fair share of diaper changing and baby sitting and comforting, but only the way a sister can give.
Being a Mom to a boy I would assume is different. I could go and get all the guru books on how to raise a boy, etc… but why? I can ask you my readers and friends the same question and get some awesome, real-life practical advice on this new adventure. So please…SHARE! What do I and my husband need to know about raising a boy? What is your sage wisdom on this topic that is so new to me? I don’t expect there to be a golden key, but I am open to learning from all your successes and even failures, if you are willing to share.
So, leave a comment and teach me, I am all ears!
