There’s Just Something About A Boy

Mothers of boys, what are the moments you treasure most?  Do you ever wish you could stop time and keep your son little forever?

You can’t.

But you can treasure each moment.
  • I wept when my son was born. 
  • I cried (hard!) at his first haircut. 
  • I trembled with fear his first day of kindergarten.
  • I cheered with pride when he slid into home plate.
  • No, I’m not yet ready for a teenager.
  • Don’t even talk to me about his first date!
Each stage comes with its own hopes, dreams, and fears.  And each stage is beautifully remembered and illustrated in There’s Just Something About A Boy, by Jenny Lee Sulpizio.

In this newly-released children’s book, Jenny Lee Sulpizio captures the hearts and minds of every mother who looks forward to watching her son grow, all the while wishing she could freeze time and keep him little forever.  From conception until adulthood, there’s something magical about watching a son get older – and reading about it along the way.  

There’s Just Something About A Boy is the perfect gift for new moms; it’s also a keepsake book for mothers and sons for years to come.  In fact, I’d love to send you a copy.  Just leave me a comment before Monday to enter a drawing!

Remember, he can’t stay little forever.

I asked the LORD to give me this boy, and he has granted my request. 1 Samuel 1:27 (NLT)

I'd love to be entered to win this book. You're right-there is just something about raising a boy. Trying at times, but so very worth it:)

You know THIS post is near and dear to this mom of four sons!

No, he can't stay little forever...but I'm here to tell you they're a joy as they grow, too!

Some days I am conflicted, not wanting them to grow up when they insist on holding my hand as we walk down the stairs or asking for a hug and a kiss at nap time or bed time, but wishing they were more mature when they throw tantrums, or have arguments over toys or an agreed upon end of play time.

I am ever thankful for them though as we learn and love and grow with each new day.

Sounds great Suz. Is the author a friend? From Columbus? I'll have to check it out!
FYI... Just shared your book with Doug and Maret. I think they'll both enjoy it for different reasons :)

I would love to win a copy of this. I'm the mom of 2 boys, the youngest of which just turned 1, and I couldn't be happier.

Ok, as a mom of girls, I don't need this book for me, but I have a friend who is getting ready to have her first boy. It looks super sweet.

Sooo, pick me, pick me, pick me (do yo see my hand flying around in the air?)

I am late for the give away but my boy keepsakes are my memories. I have two and I have written a couple of posts on what it is like to have them growing out from under my wings. One is about the last time I picked up Luke from school because he started to drive himself and the other was about rearranging my nest with my older son off in college. I love my daughter as well but there is nothing like your son asking to marry you when he is six. :)
