have a son? then read this...

I cry a lot.  Songs, commercials, movies, you name it, I am a sap.  So when I found this post over at Team Studer, of course I cried.  The post titled "25 rules for Mothers of Sons", is perfect for any one that has a little (or big) guy in their life. 

For example Rule # 25
25. Be home base
You are home to him.  When he learns to walk, he will wobble a few feet away from you and then come back, then wobble away a little farther and then come back.  When he tries something new, he will look for your proud smile.  When he learns to read, he will repeat the same book to you twenty times in a row, because you're the only one who will listen that many times.  When he plays his sport, he will search for your face in the stands.  When he is sick, he will call you.  When he really messes up, he will call you.  When he is grown and strong and tough and big and he feels like crying, he will come to you; because a man can cry in front of his mother without feeling self-conscious.  Even when he grows up and has a new woman in his life and gets a new home, you are still his mother; home base, the ever constant, like the sun.  Know that in your heart and everything else will fall into place.

They are things we should all remember as we raise these little guys to be amazing, caring big guys.  

I hope you check it out, and I hope you are having a great weekend.
