There’s so much I have learned from my boys like how to make a weapon out of a paper towel holder, skills needed to become a real Jedi, and the importance of checking pockets before doing wash!
I think there is something very special about being a mom of boys and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
I polled my Facebook community to get their feedback on ways they know they are a mom of boys. Every answer I read, I giggled to myself because I can totally relate.
I decided to break it up into two parts since there were so many awesome responses!
