I‘m sure you’ve heard the saying that goes – What screws us up the most is that image we have in our heads of how we think it all should go. Being solely a boy mom wouldn’t be what I’d pick at 23 but thank goodness because I couldn’t imagine life without Tuck and our soon to come Wesley James. Truth be told I’m giddy thinking about two boys running around my house creating havoc. A smile as big as texas is across my face just picturing it. I think we can all thank God for not giving us exactly what we’ve wanted at certain times all the time, because for one, I wouldn’t trade knowing this sweet angel boy for the world. In no way am I saying one is better than the other… but this is what I’ve discovered about having a boy. or a tuck. because they are all so different, i know.
– they are literally the sweetest beings on earth. my child kisses me at every turn. literally takes my face in his hand and cups my chin and plants a wet one. It’s just so unexpectedly sweet to me. I didn’t think a boy would be like this. But again – I know nothing. God knows everything.
-tuck will go to bed with his truckies. I know not all boys are like this but it cracks me up nightly.
-my son likes to go in our “woods” which are basically shrubs and pretend like he’s in a jungle. it’s the best to watch. boys are little explorers.
-boys seem to be a thousand times messier. like no thought to being a complete ragamuffin at every turn. this has taught me more humility (I needed it). It’s also taught me – who the heck cares? life is short. get messy.
– it’s true what they say – boys LOVE their mamas. My son prefers me to everyone- even his dad, which is saying a lot, because everyone prefers his dad. He’s doing a lot for my confidence that boy. lol.
Obviously your boy may be totally different or your girl may be just like my little Tuck. But the point is – aren’t all our kids amazing? Boy or girl- whatever you get blessed with, is the best. And if you’re currently pregnant worrying if you’re going to connect with your baby boy – don’t. You will. Beyond anything you thought imaginable. And that relationship will be perfect. That little boy is going to change your life in the best way. I promise.
