They’ve created a racetrack through and around the kitchen and lounge room, which means our furniture is constantly pushed up against the walls as they speed their scramblers through the house!
Despite their very obvious ‘boyness’ I’m constantly taken aback by my sons’ sensitivity and empathy for others — the sweetest moments are when they comfort each other when sad, disappointed, or hurt.
Raising boys is a balancing act. I’m trying to embrace their energy and teach resilience, but I also want them to know that I value their emotions and what they have to say about the world around them.
How have your boys surprised you?. Join the discussion: @beyondthebobbin_
