I am surrounded by testosterone, humor at bodily functions, dirty dishes, and smelly, smelly, smelly dirty clothes. I feel like most days I fight a losing battle to instill a modicum of civility. "Mama Tried" will be chiseled in my tombstone. It might even be "Mama Failed."
Luckily, my two boys have some outstanding male role-models in their lives, and it is not just up to me to craft good, strong, decent men out of the baby boys with whom I was blessed. My dad, my father-in-law, and my husband are wonderful.
Happy Father's Day!
