To a mother, a son is never a fully grown man;
and a son is never a fully grown man until he understands and accepts this about his mother.

I sometimes wish you were still small.
Not yet so big and strong and tall.
For when I think of yesterday.
I close my eyes and see you play.

I often miss that little boy.
Who pestered me to buy a toy.
Who filled my days with pure delight.
From early morn to late at night.

We watch our children change and grow.
As seasons come, then quickly go.
But our God has a perfect plan.
To shape a boy into a man.

Today, my son, I'm proud of you.
For all the thoughtful tihngs you do.
I'll love you till my days are done.
And i'm so grateful you're my son.

"Being a boy mama is dirty, messy, and extremely loud. It's a bit like raising a band of pirates. But there is absolutely nothing better than little boy cuddles and hearing "I love you, Mommy" from my sweet (and sometimes stinky) boys." - Shell, Things I Can't Say 


My own mum is always saying, "As long as you're happy, I'm happy".
And that makes me happy too 
