♥ The Girl — 19 Comments

  1. Dropping in from SITS. I love this post! what a lucky girl your future daughter-in-law is to have a m-i-l who actually loves her. (I’m lucky in that way too, and hope to treat my d-i-l the same way in 20 years or so).
    Congratulations on gaining a daughter too. 🙂

  2. 5 sons?! You are my idol! And, one getting married? I am so not ready to think about mine even going on a date. I probably won’t even be invited to the wedding b/c I will be a blubbery, crying, snotty mess. Have fun:) And, thanks for visiting my happy spot!

  3. I’ll have to remember all of this good advice for when my boys start bringing home girls.

    5 boys!! They sound awesome!
    Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

    I’ll be back to get more tips about raising boys. I have two. But sometimes it feels like there are twelve of them!!:)

  4. What a great read and an insightful thought. I wish _______and _______ the best! I only wish I could be there to witness the union, but my thoughts and prayers will be with them as I am in North Dakota for the summer serving as a summer missionary. Best wishes – Katie Lewis

  5. I love your cute little corner of cyberspace over here! 5 sons? Holy Cow! How do you do it my friend? I especially loved this post though because it has so much heart and passion and family value all tied into it. What a nice read. Congrats to you, your son and his new wife! May they have a lifetime of love and happiness!!

  6. Thank you for stopping by my blog!
    I think it’s awesome you have FIVE sons! I have two and I can’t imagine what it would be like to have a little girl…and trust me…I’ve started some potty humor things that I shouldn’t have too! It just comes with the territory! I’m still trying to get my 3 year old to stop saying certain things in public… : )

  7. This post is so sweet, and so true. I have 5, but 3 girls and 2 boys. If you can’t handle potty humor your just not going to make it!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  8. So thankful you stopped by my blog so that I in turn found yours. How fascinating to read a blog written by a mother of five sons. Since I had three daughters imagine what I can learn from you. I will be back.

  9. First off, I absolutely love the picture in your header!!!

    Secondly, I wish my MIL had the same sweetness in her heart that you have. Your future DIL is very lucky to have such an accepting MIL!

    5 boys?? Wow! I could probably learn a lot from you. I have 3 boys and I’m already hearing the potty talk at the dinner table and enduring burping contests. UGH!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  13. Oh thank you for posting this. Good stuff. It is so nice to see that others have similar approaches to dating. I had a similar realization about my son’s girlfriend when they started dating. I don’t know if she is the one but if it ends I want her to remember that we loved her while she was part of the family. A year later I am fairly certain she isn’t the one, she doesn’t seem as in love with the family as my son. Not passing the family endurance test. But I am still loving her while praying my son sees the truth soon.
