Thoughts on Mommyality

It’s been a long time since I’ve written on Mommyality. In fact, I was worried I didn’t have anything left to offer. Peanut is now 11 and with his growing older, it means times are changing. I’ll be an empty nester in a little over six years when he goes off to college.

That’s a tough pill to swallow.

Being a mother has been the hardest yet most fulfilling job I’ve ever had, or ever will have. I love it with all my being.

As I work him up this morning, I took the rare opportunity to crawl in his bed and cuddle. Kiss on his cheeks without him pulling away and just breath in the scent of my little boy turning into a man. In case you’re wondering what the scent is, it’s a combo of Old Spice and Irish Spring bodywash.

All of this made me realize I have so much more to share. I have a whole lifetime of my own Mommyality. Mine isn’t about diapers, breastfeeding or potty training, but something that goes beyond that. I’m more worried about how I’m going to help him when his heart is broken for the first time, or how I’ll deal with the inevitable peer pressure he will face.

So, I do have a lot to offer here. Mommyality is just growing up, right along side Peanut.

I’ve never been happier.
