Each day I feel like I am learning what it means to be a mom of a boy. Like letting Judah play with dirt and sticks yet being sensitive to his little heart when he is sad that his favorite tree fell after last weeks storm. He kept saying "I sad, bye bye tree" every time we walked out of the house, I taught him to say "night night tree" and told him the tree is taking a nap.
Being able to give him some space and allow him to try to skate his tech deck skateboards at the skatepark.
Watching him watch an older kid skateboard and knowing that one day it will be me watching Judah. Also praying that Judah wears a helmet unlike this kid.
His smile brightens my day and I can't get enough of his laughter. I'm still trying to find that perfect balance of "making him wear his gloves because I think its to cold" and "allowing him to take them off for a few minutes so he can grab his trucks or mini skateboards". I dont want to be like that mom from the Christmas Story.
Learning that although Judah can be a pretty tough boy who likes to run run run and jump jump jump he also needs some cuddles and his beloved pillows. Especially after a nap.
I love my sweet boys little heart and I love learning how to be his mom.
