Mom to Men

I always thought I'd have all boys...

I was a teacher before I had my girls and in the classroom, I was always drawn to the little boys...

It was a challenge for me to make sure that lessons, that often cater to little girls, would interest them...if that meant throwing a ball around the room while I read, or suddenly breaking out into jumping jacks and floor sprints...well, so be it!

I loved their energy...I loved their perspective on different units of study...it was always so unique and I valued their input...I also knew that if they got bored, I'd lose them...so they kept me on my toes...

Therefore, because I felt that I was always trying to make sure my little guy students were eagerly engaged...for sure, God would give me boys when I one day became a mom...

This was not to be...

EVER...

Nope...all girls...everytime, I asked the doctor to check again and make sure, cuz I was certain that I was supposed to have at least one boy in the mix...

I will now have to be content with my nephews and my future sons-in-law (who, no doubt will think their MIL is a bit looney....but, I just say, "welcome to the family, son!"

Anyway, It was lovely meeting this bunch...and I especially liked watching MOM!  

She adores her "boys" (who are now grown men)

And she has raised them well, because they love, respect and adore her in return!...ALL FOUR OF THEM!  It's a beautiful sight to see...

This mom of boys now has some "daughters" to add to her flock...even one little granddaughter too...and I'm sure that it brings her joy to interact with them all...

at the same time, no matter what, she wouldn't trade the cards she was dealt...

they were all Kings!!
