"Sounds beautiful.  I wear my mother's engagement ring (1942) on my right hand and treasure it.  Older rings usually have smaller stones, so if she wants a rock that might be problematic.  However, the settings are more exquisite…"

Your favorite things about raising a boy

So today my wife and I found out that we are having a boy. This is our first child, so we are still experiencing everything for the first time, and it's a wild ride. We're very excited. I thought that since we're having a boy, I'd ask all you fathers of boys what your favorite parts of raising boys are. What do you enjoy most? On the other hand, what do you enjoy least?
