Enjoy the cuddles and let him be himself.

FWIW my dh prefers pants/briefs to boxers. As do my 16yo and my 10yo ds. Nothing to do with growing up. And all three kiss and hug me, too.

I know what you mean, mom. We want our kids to be perfectly "normal" because we know life tends to be easier when we fall within the "norm". I don't know if your son does or doesn't fall within the "norm". It's probably a little too early to worry though.

My advice for you is -- try to keep your concerns to yourself! Don't ever let him have cause to think that who he is is not "good enough" for you.
