My 5-year-old son, BooBoo is the most spirited and loving child around. Always has been. Whether he’s making fast friendships with strangers or weaseling out of trouble on account of those dimples, he’s always workin’ his magnetic mojo.
As his mother, I’d love to tell you that I’m immune to his charms, but even I’ve been known to weaken on occasion. So when BooBoo started breaking away from me about a year ago, it broke my heart probably more than it should have. While I discovered that he’d make his way back to me, I had to learn how to get comfortable with being there on his terms. Sure, my son still needs me, but I’m self-aware to realize that I may need him even more.
Whatever the cause or circumstance, BooBoo has recently rediscovered his adoration for me. Right now I’m the most beautiful, perfect, caring, comforting, intelligent woman in his life. I swear I’m more than a little hooked on this mama’s boy magic. If I could make this feeling last forever, you bet I would.
For now I’m savoring these moments for as long as they last because nothing this perfect can possibly last forever, and really, I suppose that’s all part of the magic.
Take a look at some of my favorite magic moments with BooBoo:
Am I crazy for feeling all weeps about this?
