Being the mom of a teen boy is both the most fulfilling and difficult thing in the world. They can love us so fiercely and yet they also can treat us like we don’t exist. They are often quiet and private and leave us wondering what is going on in that head of theirs, but sometimes we truly are glad we have no clue.

It’s a bitter sweet time as we say goodbye to days when we were the center of their universe and instead watch in awe as these teens sons of our prepare to go out into the world on their own. Oh, how they make us proud and we know they are growing into fine young men, but that doesn’t make us miss our little boys any less.
