T-Shirt C/O : Ford and Wyatt
If you would have told me 10 years ago that by the time I was 30 I would have a 7-year-old, 5-year-old and a newborn I would have smiled and agreed. I have always wanted to start growing our family while we were ‘young’. If you would have told me that they would all be boys, I would have laughed. While I am not a “get your nails done makeup on fleek” type of girl, I am far from a tough hanging chic that in my mind would qualify me as a “boy mom”
But. Here I am. 3o years old and mother of 3 crazy little men I get to call my own.
If you follow me on snapchat (@TheThomeHome) you get a daily glimpse of the hilarious day-to-day shenanigans of raising boys.
Incase you don’t – jump on it.
Not a day goes by raising boys without the following:
Random boogers found smeared on walls.
Sports. Playing, watching, talking about sports.
Cleaning layers of pee off of the toilet.
Someone getting kicked in the nuts, it’s not me.
Laughing hysterically till it hurts.
Oh did I mention sports?
Peeing in a water bottle when stuck in the car pool lane.
So many hugs and kisses, my boys are awfully affectionate.
I think that is one thing I did not anticipate with having little boys. Just how raw and rugged they are with their emotions. The good and the bad. They can fight like cats and dogs. But in the same day they will not stop acknowledging how much they love dan and I. Randomly hugging and kissing us, and just saying “I love you”.
After finding out Max was indeed a boy, Dan and I both put to rest the idea of having a daughter. At first it was a little sad. And then this brilliant little boy came into our lives and we’ve spent the last 4 months just realizing how much we are meant to be parents to these boys.
I do my best to roll with the punches and take on this “boy mom” roll the best I can. I am not perfect, and gosh darn it do I love my girlie shows at night and reading a good book. But for now, I roll up my sleeves, dig in the dirt, keep scrubbing the ill-aimed pee and squeeze these amazing littles we were given.
Gosh, we are so lucky to be raising boys.
