How many millions of brothers have grown up playing football against each other in their backyards? It’s impossible to know, really—but if you had brothers or are raising boys, you’ve probably seen a few of those pick-up games yourself. 

Sometimes, the little boys tossing around the pigskin grow up to realize the dream of playing in the NFL. In Donna Kelce’s case, that dream became a reality times two: son Jason Kelce plays center for the Philadelphia Eagles, and son Travis Kelce is a tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs.

And in two weeks time, those two teams—and Donna’s two boys—will face off in the NFL’s biggest game

Talk about splitting a mother’s heart right down the middle! 

RELATED: Being a Boy Mom is Everything

It’s the first time in NFL history brothers will face off against each other for the Lombardi Trophy. That makes Donna the first mother to have to sit in the stands of the Super Bowl and genuinely be split on who to cheer for.

“It’s elation but also someone’s going to come out a loser, and that’s going to be rough,” Donna told sports reporter Omar Ruiz in an interview. “But there won’t be any fisticuffs!” 

The internet is delighting in the added family element to the upcoming game, because who wouldn’t? 

We’ll have to wait a couple of weeks to find out which brother gets to claim bragging rights and hoist the trophy with his team as Super Bowl champs.

No matter the final score, one thing’s for sure: 

“My mom can’t lose,” Travis Kelce quipped after his Chiefs became AFC Champions on Sunday. 

And it’s safe to say we’ll all be cheering everyone’s favorite proud mom as she realizes that really cool boy mom dream alongside her sons.

Good luck to both teams!

A Mama’s Heart Sees the Beauty Between Those Growth Chart Marks

In: Kids, Motherhood
Mom measuring child on wall

A homemade oversized ruler hangs at one end of our hallway. It is covered with carefully placed blue and white marks, along with some permanent marker scribbles left behind by my then sneaky, 3-year-old. Every six months, growing feet are pressed back against the wall, eyes gaze forward, and otherwise wiggly bodies are held still as I carefully measure how much each of my boys has grown. As they huddle near each other examining the brand-new marks, my eyes always shift to the top of the ruler, and I wonder just how high the marks will eventually reach. It’s always...

A Boy Needs His Mama

In: Motherhood

Oh, how a boy needs his mama. And that need goes much deeper than cooking, cleaning, and laundry. Oh yes. The need is far greater. A boy needs the prayers of his mama. Needs the respect of his momma. Needs the support of his mama. So often I catch myself feeling that I am only needed for simple survival. For clean clothes or a fresh supper. Sometimes I feel like all I’m needed for is to drive him around or to make sure he goes to bed on time. RELATED: I Thank God Every Day For Choosing Me To Be...

Dear Son, I’m Yours Forever

In: Motherhood
Son and mother touching noses

Dear son, I am your mother. I am your vessel until you enter this world. I am your nurturer. I am your voice when you haven’t quite found yours. I am your shoulder to cry on in the middle of the night when the monsters under the bed won’t go away. I am your makeshift nurse with a bandaid for every scraped knee and ointment for every bug bite. I am whatever your imagination wants me to be–a knight defending the fortress, a race car driver racing to the finish line, a Broadway singer singing show tunes. I am your...
