25 Rules for Mothers of Sons I am not a mother of boys but am a teacher of boys and know these things to be very true... brought a tear to my eyes and I'm not even their mother! To all you moms of sons, I applaud you. It's no easy task, but so important and so worth it.
How true this is! I should put this on my fridge in order to keep my sanity when specific people out there act so cruel and heartless and selfish. As my mother always says, "Be the better person." Sometimes that is really, really hard to do!
Hard to believe of myself, but just keeping my kids alive, and cleaning up things like snot and vomit and diarrhea without gagging, and being able to help them smile when they're sad, and being strong when they're hurting - this makes me a superhero.
