y’all know that I am a mother to a sweet boy… 13 years ago he came into this world and changed my life forever. And although I felt ready to become a mama, I truly felt a wave of fear go through my body when I found out I was having a boy. Growing up with a sister and knowing nothing about boys, I just wasn’t sure if I could be a BOY MOM. But that fear quickly went away the minute I held that baby boy in my arms… that was the beginning of something beautiful.
there is just nothing like the bond between a mom and her son… you are his first love, his first friend, his first everything! You look at him and can’t help but feel this incredible connection. You hate when he hurts and you want to do everything in your power to protect him from anyone that could cause him pain. And in return he loves you with all his heart and thinks you are the most beautiful person in the world. He wants to make you happy and wants to protect you as much as he can. As a little boy he craves your attention and as he gets older… he still feels the need to have you close.
being a boy mom is something you don’t understand until you live it… and these mamas right here live it every single day just like I do. These little boys, including my son, will one day grow up to be sweet men and they will one day make room in their hearts to love someone else. But no matter where they are and who they are with, they will always have room in their hearts for their mama. And that is something us BOY MOMS can count on.
