The day I found out that I was going to have three sons, my friend found out she was going to have a son, too. She looked at me with such an awed expression, pointing out that we were getting our chance to raise men who could be amazing husbands and fathers. I’ve carried that sentiment around with me consciously in the nine years I’ve been raising these little men. So it was with double pleasure that I opened my laptop this morning to find this note from one of my sweet boys. This makes me feel good as the mommy who is receiving this praise from her son, and as the mommy who is raising her son to be loving to his spouse and children one day. What a fabulous surprise.
