It’s time for the MOB Society’s Second Annual Boy Mom BlogHop! I participated last year and thought I’d do it again this year as it’s a great way to find other moms of boys in the blogosphere. If you’re here for the first time, welcome! I’m glad you stopped by!
These are my two little rascals. Landon is almost four and Brigham is two. They bring me more joy than I could have ever imagined. When I was a little girl I always said I wanted boys because I had three sisters, and well, that’s a lot of estrogen in one household.
Looks like I got my wish with my sons. I feel so blessed to have been given the job of raising two sons. I want to raise them up to be Godly men. We started going to church for the first time last fall. I wanted to give them a good foundation in Christianity. Landon goes to a pre-Sunday school and learns a little bit about God and Jesus. It’s amazing how he uses what little information he learns. One time it rained and Landon said, “God makes it rain so the flowers and grass and trees can grow.”
Brigham turned two in May and is exhibiting all normal behavior for a two-year-old. Running around like a chicken with his head cut off. I have trouble wrangling him as he has perfected his “get away” moves. His temper has reared it’s head the last two months. He wants it his way or he gets pretty upset. He is loud and silly and a bundle of energy. He likes to drive his brother crazy by taking toys away from him.
Landon is so smart. His thirst for knowledge astounds me. He asks so many questions a day and is always wondering why things are the way they are. He can count in Spanish and is beginning to sound out words in books. This is a recent development. He will grab a book and say he wants to read it himself. I realize that learning to read can’t be too far off. Each stage presents new highlights and challenges in my motherhood journey.
Even as my boys get older they still love cuddles from their mama. I get lots of kisses and hugs and “I love you-s” every day.
It is the light of my life that I get to see them grow and learn and seek right in front of my eyes.
