we I have been coming to terms with the fact that our boys are growing up. Not only do they want to move onto “big” boy things, they want Daddy more. I’m not hurt by this,. well maybe a little after all I am mom and have been there since, well, forever.
I know this is part of them learning to figure out who they are and what they want out of life, but are they ever really old enough for us?
When they wanted to play certain Wii games, we asked, are you sure you can play this, much to our amazement, they sure can. And they can kick our butts in it!
I want them to stay little! I want them to want Mommy for all their hurts, their happiness, their sorrow, but I can’t fill some of that and I’m learning to be okay with it.
ThingOne recently wanted to watch a movie I wasn’t sure he was old enough for. I then had to step back and realize, he has grown much further than I thought possible and yes he was mature enough to handle the movie. That is where my “hurt” lies. he is growing and maturing so fast and I want him to be my baby much longer. I know that I will always have a place in his heart, and he will still come to mommy when he’s hurt. But right now Daddy is where his heart lies and I am thankful that Daddy is treasuring that part of his life right now.
