Luvely- nightmares go both ways and stereotypically girls have the worse rep 😊

That being said I love love love my son! They are definitely pro Mom, my son is considerate and kind. And as my son is 12 (where did the time go!?) he isn’t nearly the hellion that is his sister lol. It’s surreal to me that my baby will grow to be a man.

I have a 4 month old and literally he is the cutest thing I’ve ever laid my eyes on. I love dressing him as a little gentleman and he gives me butterflies when he smiles at me. I couldn’t imagine loving another creature more. I cry  thinking about our mother son dance at his wedding and get goosebumps just knowing I’m raising the perfect gentleman.

I honestly can wait to see the strong handsome confident man I know he’ll grow into.

happytobemrsg :  I have an almost 5 year old, he turns 5 end of Sept!  I love when he snuggles with me. I love his smiles/his giggles/his laughter.  I love that he tends to want to do most of the things with his mommy.  I love when he comes up to me and tells me he loves me for no reason what so ever.

People say males are less talkative than females. I’m not sure when or where they lose these words because neither my son nor his father have gotten the memo. I love the energy and openness that my son has- he’s always happy to meet new people and he’s certain they’re happy to meet him as well. I have zero interest in cars (as long as mine gets me where I’m going I’m good)- my son LOVES vehicles and has done since he was very small- I’ve learned a greater appreciation for them because of him.

He’s also very sweet and I’ve had people remark on his gentleness with children younger than him. He makes me aware how much of men’s bullshit and violence is patriarchy and societal training which gives me hope. If boys are being taught to be destructive, they can also be taught that rape culture harms all of us and to use their male privilege to dismantle it.

happytobemrsg :  boys in general are so much easier. Easier to please, less expensive, typically less drama.

Specifically I love my 16 year old for all that he is. Smart, witty, funny. Even when he rambles (ALL THE TIME) about sports I just nod and say uh huh to hear how excited he gets about these things. He teaches me much more than I would’ve ever known without him (new mommies will understand in time) & he made me the best thing I’d ever be in my entire life, a mom.

Edit: I’ve lost two boys in 2 years at 6 months and (even though I’d be heartbroken either way) when I think about what might have been the longing for the joy that my son has always brought me again is very great. I love my daughters and life with them is amazing too, but there’s just that bond with a mom and her son.

I grew up with two sisters and three brothers and my brothers are my best friends so I was beyond happy when I had a sin since my sisters and cousins all have girls. My son is like the light on a dark day. He can be so difficult but when I’m feeling down he comes and gives me a hug and a kiss and it just reminds me of how much my brothers mean to me.

I have two boys, both under 3. 

My 3 year old comes out with the funniest stuff sometimes. I feel proud when he comes across to be helpful, kind and sensitive, feels like I must be raising him ok. Hopefully he can  continue those traits for the rest of his life. 

I’m also lazy, so not having to do hair etc makes me happy haha.

The household is ridiculously noisy. But he loves his baby brother so much – always giving him kisses and toys.

picturemeurs :  I too get emotional thinking of their weddings. When I go out and see a mom with her teenage son walking around, taller than mom now, it makes me tear up thinking mine will be that way sooner than I think. It’s quite special. I always wanted sons and I was blessed with two. I’m so thankful for the joy they’ve brought to my life.

My son is 17 months old and he’s the most amazing person. I’m tearing up thinking about it. He’s got the funniest little personality and he’s so silly. He loves to cuddle with me. He’s always climbing up on the couch to snuggle into me. He loves to help me clean and it’s so cute. When he puts something away or does something new he’ll look at me for praise and when I say good job! He looks so proud and happy. He’s just the sweetest little guy. I love dressing him in little man outfits. I’ve always seen myself with all boys and after having him, I’d be perfectly okay with that 🙂
