Mama's Boy

If you could look up the phrase "Mama's Boy" in the dictionary, the description might read like this-

A boy that doesn't have any use for anyone but his Mother. Only his Mommy can hold him, comfort him, and tuck him in at night. If anyone else does anything for him, he yells at them. Even his Father can't get him juice. Only Mommy can pour juice right.

The boy's favorite phrase is, "NO! Mommy do it!" If anyone else comes in his room to get him after naps, he busts into tears. Only Mommy can read books, do sidewalk chalk, play trains, and kiss boo boos. Pretty much, the world only revolves around Mom.

And now if you were to see a picture in the dictionary that went along with this description, this would be it.

Yes, Will Webster is a classic example of a Mama's Boy. It is exhausting, but I love it. I don't necessarily want him to be like this at 32, but I'll take it in a heart beat from my 22 month old.

Oh, who am I kidding? I hope he's like this at 62. I love my little guy. And I love how much he loves me.

What a sweet, sweet boy. Mine is still pretty much like that at 2 1/2. Still only wants Mommy to put him down, get him up, and clearly I am the only one who can pour the juice "correctly"! However, when it comes to his Daddy's truck, he changes on a dime!! Lovin' some little boy!! And I love that sweet little Will :) Can't wait to see y'all this summer!

Jack is the same way. Not both my boys.....just Carter.

Blake teases me that I'll be living at the frat house with him as the "den mother" b/c Jack won't go away to college without me. :)

I wish I had the same attitude as you do Lauren with precious Joshua. Some days I really just want him to go to his daddy. Burt is beginning to think he doesn't like him. Sad :-( I know it isn't true since he does ask about him, but he always wants me to read to him, put him to bed, and runs to me when in trouble. Definitely my mama's boy and I love him to pieces, but it can be exhausting at times too.

It is a special to be needed so. It takes a special woman with a special strength to keep this in mind. I am so happy that WIll has you!!
