A couple of years back I stumbled across Sarah Tucker and her gorgeous blog, Sarah Tucker Styles. I was hooked instantly. This mama sure knows how to captivate her audience and relate to her readers. It is evident that she is adored by many. I am so honored to have Sarah here today sharing a little bit about what she has learned from Motherhood and being a mama to boys has impacted her life! Sarah is mama to Tuck and soon to be Wesley James next April! Sarah, thank you so much for sharing your heart!
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.
