“Three boys? That’s so sad!”

That’s what someone said to me last week, as she looked upon the smiling faces of my precious little guys.

But, my sweet boys, I want you to hear me when I say that she couldn’t have been more wrong.

It’s not sad.

Not at all.

Not even for one moment.

RELATED: God Gave Me Sons

It’s not sad when you randomly tell me I’m the most beautiful girl in the whole world.

It’s not sad when you climb up onto my lap and we snuggle together on the couch.

It’s not sad when you grab for my hand as we stroll along the path behind our house.

It’s not sad when you wrap your arms around my legs while I cook dinner.

It’s not sad when you tell that perfectly-timed joke that makes us both laugh until our cheeks hurt.

It’s not sad when you hold the door open for as many strangers as you can.

RELATED: There’s Sweetness Inside These Rowdy Boys, Too

It’s not sad when you let me wipe the tears from your face.

It’s not sad when you help me unload all the groceries.

It’s not sad when you want to tell me all about cars and sports and LEGOs and dinosaurs and rocks and bugs and riding your bike and the epic fort you built.

It’s not sad.

I’m not sad.

And I’m sorry I didn’t tell her that.

I’m sorry that I was so caught off guard that I couldn’t properly express to her how incredibly beautiful life is with the three of you.

So I just want you to know that my heart, it isn’t sad.

It’s overjoyed. Overflowing.

All thanks to my boys.

I am so in Love With Being a Boy Mom

In: Kids, Motherhood
3 young boys

I never finish a cup of coffee. I rarely sit down. I could buy stock in milk, bread, and chips. I vacuum a lot. All my white shorts have grass stains. My car is a mess. I find army guys everywhere. I dream of pooping alone. The bathroom is always wet. I get nervous about what I’ll find in the laundry pile My mascara is often used as a sword. All my blankets have become capes. I have boys. I belly laugh hourly. I get high fives for burping. I wake up excited for the adventures of the day. I...

Raising Boys Is The Sweetest Blessing I’ve Ever Known

In: Motherhood

Raising boys is not for the faint of heart. It’s stinky feet and dirty hands. Loud thuds from the other room and holding your breath for the split second between the crash and the giggle; praying they’re okay. A constant game of pocket roulette in the laundry room. A handful of dirt, a few rocks, or a living, breathing something or other—you never really know what you’ll find. Spontaneous kisses and the tightest bear hugs. Running too fast, jumping from too high, and throwing caution to the wind. Constant conversation about trucks, tractors, and all things that go VROOM. Sensitive...

So God Made a Boy Mom www.herviewfromhome.com

He knew you would need to be able to run wild and free and to have someone there who could handle your fearless nature even if she was a little bit scared. Someone who would be willing to pull over on the side of the road just to look at tractors and diggers and cement mixers.  So God made a boy mom. He knew you needed someone who would spend her time trying to find the balance between teaching you how to be strong and brave but also reminding you that you can be sensitive and kind, too. So God...
