After having four boys, I’ve learned to accept the fact that this life will be crazy…and…awesome…and a bit more crazy. Raising boys can be an incredible experience and one thing that I’ve learned is that boys absolutely love their mama!

My boys adore me and that is the best feeling ever. Of course, the fact that they love their mom isn’t the only great thing about raising a boy.   I asked my Moms of Boys Community to share what they think the best thing about raising a boy is and I love their answers!
