I'm a mother of 18 & 11 yr old young ladies...yeah 18! They come 1st. Everything else is a close or distant 2nd and YOU may have a chance to become 1.5. He should enjoy going out (with me), hanging with friends or staying in to watch football or basketball...yeah I can keep up with the best of 'em. I like a variety of all sports so don't get me wrong but those are my favorite. Don't be afraid if I know more than you. We can also lounge or snuggle on the couch watching a good movie. I may not be a social butterfly but I can hold my own. I want him to be able to make smile without saying a word or make me laugh at the little things. He should be CONFIDENT in all he do, and not be afraid of a strong willed womans opinion when asked.
