The Boy has been a bit more assertive, a bit more physical, a bit more…manly.  I think he is in transition from being a mama’s boy to being mama’s boy.  So far, it’s frustrating because he’s challenging my authority more and pushing limits a little more than usual.  I want to encourage Noah’s journey from under my wing and out of his sister’s shadow, but I don’t want to encourage disrespect or arrogance.   Aside from my insatiable baby fever,I’m loving the kid’s more advanced years. But the more advanced years are calling for more advanced parenting.

Any of you moms of boys have any tips, stories or words of wisdom for this stage of boyhood?
