There is an old saying that goes like this,
Right now, I have two beautiful, wonderful little boys that think I am the best thing since sliced bread. They (mostly) want to sit beside me. They ride in my car. They sleep in my bed. They hold my hand. They steal my drink. They tell me everything.
Will this probably change? Yes. Do I already see the evidence in my tall 7 and 1/2 year old little boy? Yes. Does he need me a little less all the time? Yes.
Being a mother is the best. Being the eventual mother-in-law to sons? Probably is going to suck just a little. My boys will grow up and (hopefully) find a partner to share their lives. I will help plan weddings but only if the future spouse lets me. I’ll learn to pin a boutonniere. I’ll try and keep my mouth closed. I’ll be just the mother-in-law.
But I’ll always be a mother to three wonderful, beautiful babies.
And this beautiful baby…
