Everything finally makes sense…..boys can’t help but to be rude, heartbreaking, daredevils; their just born that way…..right?
Please for heaven’s sake tell me I’m right!!
My son will be one and a half next month and his personality is starting to shine bright like a diamond lol. I attribute his actions to his personality because I’ve seen little boys that are shy and quiet and reserved(much like myself). But that’s not my boy at all. I guess I assumed that he would either have my personality or his father’s but that doesn’t seem to be the case. He is just a big ball of excitement and in no way am I complaining. I’ll just say that I wasn’t prepared.
He’s into everything, very independent even though he obviously needs mommy’s help. His new found interests in the dishwasher, the toilet, vacuum, the curtains, under the bed, the steps, all doors and door knobs, my snacks ………(I’ll spare you all the details and just say Everything) just amazes me. He is so smart that he watches me interacting with all those things and then he goes after them himself just thinking he knows how they work. The crazy part is that most of the time he really does know how to use something after watching me. Or at least he pretends to know what he’s doing really well.
He comes back from ONE night and a day with grandma and he has new tricks up his sleeve. The pace that he is advancing makes me proud but it scares me silly. I won’t lie about it. I feel the overzealous, overbearing, overprotective mama bear growing inside me because I know that the more he learns the more I need to pay attention to his actions and direct him to learning from his interactions and not so much destroying things lol.
Now that he is undoubtedly receptive to direction I want to be sure to incorporate learning into his life. Enhancing his fundamentals like colors, shapes, letters and words. This experience just keeps getting better and better…..My point today? Motherhood is awesome. To witness this person growing into himself is the most amazing thing I have ever been apart of.
Do you have a little man in your life, what is he like? Am I alone in this energizer bunny baby war? Let me know in the comments down below
