I’m a #boymom and I am exhausted, but I have also discovered adventure and play like never before. My boys bring out the child I never got to be. They bring out the freedom I never had. They bring out the play that was inhibited in my own early years.
And here is what I have realized: it’s a beautiful thing to be a kid again.
So bang those pots and pans.
Dance without hesitation in your living room.
Pretend to be all the imaginary things.
Laugh and giggle and be free.
Run and run and run.
Make all the car and animal noises…make them up if you have to.
Learn new things every single day.
Be surprised by the joy of these little things.
And embrace ALL motherhood has to offer.
Motherhood has reignited a childlike innocence in me that I am not sure I ever had. It has given me the freedom to truly be who I am…loud and proud. Motherhood has offered me more than just 2 beautiful boys, it has gifted me with the freedom of finding and loving myself. And that is something I can definitely embrace.
