30 things I want my son to know

30 things I want my son to know

I’m mom to a very smart and special little boy.  When I found out that I was having a boy, there was a part of me that felt a little disappointed for a while; I’m a girl after all, and I don’t like mud and bugs, getting my hands all icky, making lots of mess, loud noises…..all of the so-called “boy” things they like to do.  I wondered how was I going to relate to this little bundle of “BOY” I was having.  My mom said that it was meant to be, God knew what he was doing and to leave it at that, and I did.  Deep down, I knew she was right.  And the instant that he was born, I fell in love, and it healed all my brokenness.
