Show Us Your Life: Mom Of Boys

Mother Karen has seven sons, seven sons has Mother Karen...

Welcome to you who are visiting from Kelly's Korner!  I am Karen and I am mom to 10 living children total! Seven which happen to be boys!

Today Kelly is having a link up on Mom's of Boys. I think I qualify since I have seven! I just happen to have three girls as well!

Let me introduce you to my sons.

Jeremy is our oldest at 25

Tim is second at 23. He has been married to Naomi since January 2010.

Being a mom to boys can be challenging, but it is also a joy! It is fun to see life from their perspective. It is also so sweet how much they love their Mom! I wouldn't trade that for anything in the world!

Oh I just love your love for your BOYS! I am a mom to many boys also What a blessing. I can not imagine having a grown man for a son , but then again I could never imagine having a teenage son either. Now I love that smelly fourteen year old LOL. Your Family is simply beautiful!!!

I loved reading this post and seeing the great pictures!! I have six boys!!! To be brutally honest, I never wanted any boys!! I had one sister and my husband had one sister -- so we really had no experience with boys!

I started off my motherhood journey with two girls (now 26 and 24), and just couldn't imagine myself with boys! LOL! But baby #3 was a big old whopper of a boy!! (9 lbs 6 oz) He is now almost 22 and 6'8" and nearly 300 pounds! He is a BIG guy!

He was the first of 4 boys in a row, and my second son is, just like yours, 20, named Josh and engaged! :) His wedding is in 3 weeks!!!!

Then, I have an 18 year old son and a 16 year old son. Then, we were blessed with another daughter, who is 15, followed by two more boys (13 and 9) and the caboose is a sweet little lady named Bethany (age 7). OK, I've got to be honest -- actually Bethany is a Fiesty, Tough, bossy, determined little tomboy!!!!!! ;) (Such is life when you are the youngest and have six older brothers!!!!!)

Sorry for the book! :)

I'm so jealous you have so many boys. I only had one (along with six daughters) My son desperately wanted a brother and we tried but it didn't happen. Looks like you're raising some fine young men.
