lol You've got a ladies' man already! It's nice that Mom got the beautiful flowers! My daughter hangs out with six other girls and one guy. He's the coolest kid.

With 4 little boys and 1 big boy in the house she is vastly outnumbered, so I make sure the boys know that Mom is NOT just one of the guys and that she likes to be treated to "girly" things. They are always bringing her flowers they find, or we go to the flower shop to pick out. I think I have the only 4 boys in Aroostook County that actually ASK to go into the Bath and Body shop when I take them to the mall in Presque Isle because they want to get something pretty for Mom. I couldn't be prouder of them.

This mom of daughters thanks you!
Your boys will turn out to be wonderful partners someday since you taught them to treat a female with respect.
Good job- wish more dads would take the time you have taken.

Scott we talked about what a great Dad you are at lunch today ("we" being Maine Writer, Peachie, Corgis, and I) We mentioned that one of the very best things is that with the boys being brought up this way they will treat their girlfriends, wives, and daughters with the same thoughtfulness....and teach their sons what they have learned. They are very blessed to have you for a Dad

You have done an AMAZING JOB as a FATHER!!!KUDOS TO YOU!

Your boys sound like such a BLESSING!!If I had daughters, I would want

them to meet your boys!! But I do have other relatives that are being

brought up the same way! And I PRAY that one day they will meet a boy

I wish that more PARENTS, would do what you & your wife have done with

your sons, because it is so HARD to find men that are like your little boys!

They seem so THOUGHTFUL, CARING, KIND! The only times I have

come across someone like your boys, I have been related to them

(as in my Father, Uncles, Cousins, Brothers,Grand Father etc.)

KUDOS TO YOU & YOUR WIFE FOR BRINGING THEM UP THE RIGHT WAY!

You are doing them a GREAT FAVORYOU ARE ALSO HELPING OUT THEIR

FUTURE WIVES GIRLFRIENDSTHEY WILL BENEFIT FROM HEALTHY

& HAPPY RELATIONSHIPS IN THE FUTURE!!!

I am HAPPY to read that there are some boys being brought up

in such an AMAZING way!!KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!!

YOU HAVE TAUGHT THEM WELL!YOU HAVE TAUGHT THEM TO REALLY

LOVE, RESPECT, CARE ABOUT WOMEN!!! GREAT JOB!!

I am really touched by reading about your boys, it gives me some HOPE!!

It really is. Your "raising good men to be." That's what our world needs.
Very nice.

On this end of Maine, my DH is surrounded by little women.
He except his fresh picked flowers and dandylion chain necklace with a thankful praise.
Live among the hair clips and body sprays, and in return our girls can check their oil and change a tire.
