... about being a mom to boys?
I really loved reading this blog post: Why I Love Being a Mom to Boys
What do you love about being mom to boys?
God blessed us with a boy and girl. I loved the Lego things, Rescue Hero's, I cracked smiles at the fart noises. I love talks about girls, school, and computers. I love going to band concerts and cheering him on in his sports!
Ramona Mom to 2 great kids and wife to one wonderful hubby since 1990!
SO many things... so I'll name just a few today and will add more as I think of them.
Crazy as it sounds, I love grass stains and the ring around the bathtub. It lets me know they've played hard and have had a good day.
I love cheering them on at baseball games.
As much as I cringe, I love their silly potty humor. Who knew farts were so amusing?
I love how much they love their mama. I have mama boys for sure!
I think what I love most about being a mom to boys is the foreignness of it; the being pushed outside of my comfort zone and introduced to things I otherwise wouldn't have experienced. I did not get to go see Les Mis, but I have seen every Batman and Star Trek movie, and I found to my surprise that I actually sort of enjoyed them. I have also loved watching my boys grow into the kind of young men I would want my daughters to date had I been a mother to girls. And I have loved watching the male bonding that has taken place between my boys and their dad, their grandpas, their uncles, even knowing that I will always be outside of that to some degree. And I love that at the end of the day, these young men who put on a stoic face to the rest of the world will come to me with their worries and their weaknesses and be able to relax and be themselves.
