My Boys

I am the mom to three incredible boys.  I love my boys and these three boys lighten my life every single day.  I have three boys and I would not have it any other way!
But if I am being totally honest, I always wanted to have a daughter.  I always thought I would be a girl mom {boy was I wrong}.  And if I am being honest, there are times that I wish I could buy a cute little dress and big hair bows for my daughter.  I always imagined taking my daughter to the American Girl store.  I pictured helping my daughter plan her wedding and being there when she delivered her first baby.
When I found out I was having a son, what I was most sad about was the relationship I would have with him.  I thought there was no way a son and a mom could have a relationship like I have with my mom.  I think my boys are proving me wrong and I am so glad.
My boys have opened my eyes to so many things.  I was never a huge hockey or soccer fan, but now I love it.  Not only do enjoy watching my boys play, I like to watch it on TV, too.  I have learned that my home will never be quiet.  I love the conversations I have with my boys and seeing perspectives through their eyes.  I love who they are and love watching who they are becoming.
Although having three boys was not my master plan, I am so glad it is my reality.  Some of the dreams I have had may never be fulfilled, but so many things that I could not have even dreamed have come true.  I am truly blessed with these three amazing, funny, wild, boys!

Coming from Kelly's. I too was scared of the mother/son relationship. I always thought what will I do with an 8 or 10 year old boy? But as you have learned boys are awesome! I should know I have 5!! Yes 5 boys and one girl and the relationship with my boys is amazing. I know I will always be taken care of. Thanks for sharing. You have a beautiful family!

Thanks for your comment and stopping by my blog! I can relate to a LOT of what you said. And since a 3rd boy is a very real possiblity for me, I'm encouraged by everything you said too. I'll definitely have to stop by again!
