I love having boys! Here are my cute boys…being…well BOYS!
1. Enjoying being superheros
2. J excitedly about to pounce Caleb with his superhero powers
3. Caleb taking J on with his superhero powers
You may ask “does this usually end in tears at some point?” I would say, “why yes, yes it does.” But I allow it anyway. 🙂 Boys will be boys and you can only do so much to contain their instincts. (Granted, there usually is a “point” when we have to intervene, and have to throw “be careful!” and “ok, let him up!” out there occasionally. We surely don’t want to go to Scottish Rite regularly!)
I love them.
Usually, two seconds after their tears comes laughs and then a repeat scenario of above. There has to be something to learn from this sweet childhood, boy bliss. Maybe the lesson to learn is do what you love, even if it gets you hurt. Pick yourself up and keep doing it. Enjoy it. You will be better for it. You don’t want to miss the adventure of it. I don’t know if that’s a lesson, but it has me pondering and savoring every moment of this thing called being a ‘MOM’.
I love these boys! They teach me so much about life and love.
