I always thought I’d be a girl mom, but when my 3 sons were born, God allowed me to see a little slice of heaven! Boys are wonderfully playful, smart, kind, and so much fun to be pals with! Over the years I’ve tried to think of ways for my sons and I to have one on one mom and son dates doing fun things. I try to spend intentional time with each of them when time allows. Here is a list I’ve compiled of 101 fun dates for mom and son. I’ve broken it down into groups of cost for you to check out!
