20 Things to Tell my Sons

I have seen this posted on Pinterest and Facebook and really liked it. I am BLESSED to be a boymom and I will definitely tell my boys these things. 

20 Things a Mother Should Tell Her Son

1. Play a sport.  It will teach you how to win honorably, lose gracefully, respect
 authority, work with others, manage your time and stay out of trouble.  And
maybe even throw or catch.

2. You will set the tone for the sexual relationship, so don't take something away
 from her that you can't give back.

3. Use careful aim when you pee.  Somebody's got to clean that up, you know.

4. Save money when you're young because you're going to need it some day.

5. Allow me to introduce you to the dishwasher, oven, washing machine, iron,
vacuum, mop and broom.  Now please go use them.

6. Pray and be a spiritual leader.

7. Don't ever be a bully and don't ever start a fight, but if some idiot clocks you,
please defend yourself.

8. Your knowledge and education is something that nobody can take away from you.

9. Treat women kindly.  Forever is a long time to live alone and it's even longer to
 live with somebody who hates your guts.

10. Take pride in your appearance.

11. Be strong and tender at the same time.

12. A woman can do everything that you can do.  This includes her having a
 successful career and you changing diapers at 3 A.M.  Mutual respect is the
 key to a good relationship.

13. "Yes ma'am" and "yes sir" still go a long way.

14. The reason that they're called "private parts" is because they're "private".
 Please do not scratch them in public.

15. Peer pressure is a scary thing.  Be a good leader and others will follow.

16. Bringing her flowers for no reason is always a good idea.

17. Be patriotic.

18. Potty humor isn't the only thing that's humorous.

19. Please choose your spouse wisely.  My daughter-in-law will be the gatekeeper
 for me spending time with you and my grandchildren.

20. Remember to call your mother because I might be missing you.

SO TRUE!!!!!!

Perfect!! I love it :)
I may even steal a couple of these and hang them up in Ryan's bedroom lol
What a great idea (and isn't it scary to think of a future spouse not liking you?)
