On My Way to the Party...

Saturday April 2, 2011
This is a new experience for me, but I'm on my way to a party -- the Ultimate Blog Party 2011! Let me go read the directions again...

Okay, I'm back. The directions say I'm supposed to write a little about what my blog is about. See that verse up there at the top? That's my goal -- to encourage moms and get them united in love. And if you get some inspiration and a smile (and a well-placed tear or two) along the way, well, I've done my job.

So, if you're new here, I say, "Welcome!" I'm a boy mom, I have a page of posts just for you, and I've written a book about mothering boys. You'll see that in the sidebar. My hope is to bring encouragement to all moms -- whether your children are infants, toddlers, teens, or even out of the nest. Because I figure, once a mom, always a mom. There's also a search bar you can use to look for posts that might encourage you.

I'd love to hear from you! If you want to join in the party, just click on the badge below or visit Five Minutes for Mom here.

Stopping from the UBP! I have a little boy. I really need to learn more about raising him to be all he can be.

saying hi from UBP! I love your site and what you blog about. check out my blog when you get a chance! :) www.megansutliff.blogspot.com

Nikki said...

Another boy mom here, I have one son (almost 6). Funny thing is, I was convinced I would have a girl. All the old wives tales pointed to it, and even my grandmother thought I was having a girl (and she was never wrong before). Now that I have a boy, I wouldn't know what to do with a little girl!

I would love to read your book. I am a mom to two boys under two. I can use all the help i can get! :)


It is nice to meet you, Laura, through ubp. I am a mother of girls who are already raised. Love love having adult kids. When they come to visit it always feels like Christmas morning.

Blessing on you, your family and your blog.

Karen said...

Well, I have to say, I've read Laura's book and I wish it was written when my kids were little. But I can use it for my grandkids. It's perfect for boys or girls and VERY practical!

Hi Laura,

Here from the UBP. Wonderful to see you encouraging mothers through your own experience of raising boys. I have 5 sons (and 1 daughter) and it's an incredible journey!



Amy Sullivan said...

Hey Laura,
You are the one who actually told me about this party. I wasn't going to blog this weekend. Then read your post, and got sucked in (in a good way of course!).

Oh, and they call me Amy Lauren. Who cares about legal documents, right? Ha!

I'm a SAHM to 2, one is definitely all boy! It cracks me up how different they are, especially since he isn't even 2 yet! I bet I can learn a lot here, so I'm going to follow you!
So glad I got to meet you at the party... I'd love it if you could stop by some time! http://theresjustonemommy.com

Just checking back to read any postings you may have written.

I’ve been following and enjoying your blog for a while now and would like to invite you to visit and perhaps follow me back. Sorry I took so long for the invitation.

Catherine said...

I thought I'd also say hi from UBP11. I'm already a follower, but can we ever get too much comment love? I think not! I'm looking forward to summer, your book is on reading list.

C (Kid Things) said...

I'm a boy mom, too. I have 2 boys, but I also have 1 little girl. I'd like to say it balances things, but she seems to think she's a boy, too. Nice to meet you through the UBP!

Jade Clark said...

Another boy mom here as well, I've got two (so far). Your site is inspiring!

knblawson said...
