Five Little Boys Back to School Outfits
Being a boy-mom is the best thing that's ever happened to me. My boys are a constant reminder of how much fun it is to splash in puddles, get my fingers sticky and work my core in light saber battles. But having three boys is something that never, and I do mean, not ever, occurred to me prior to my first 18-week ultrasound.
Growing up, I'd always imagined myself having three girls. We'd have tea. Ballet lessons. We'd hide electrical cords under tiny oriental rugs in impeccably decorated dollhouses. There would be Easter dresses. And bows. And tights. And patent leather shoes.
