[BOY MOMS] Kate from The Sokolewicz Family

Tuesday, January 14, 2014

Hey, y'all! I'm Kate, and I blog over at The Sokolewicz Family. Thanks Elizabeth for letting me guest post today and contribute to this awesome BOY MOM series!!

I'll start off by saying that I absolutely love being a BOY MOM and pray that we have all boys. 3 to be exact. They are just so much fun! The energy and enthusiasm they have every second of every day is unbelievable and infectious!

When I found out I was pregnant, I knew it was a boy. As most moms do, I just had a hunch. And when the ultrasound confirmed it, I think I literally jumped for joy! It's everything we'd ever hoped and prayed for.

On June 5, 2012, Jacob was born and our lives changed forever. What a complete joy he is! He's brought so much laughter and happiness to our home. He's so smart and curious, yet cautious and shy. Just when I think he couldn't be more fearless, he runs from the vacuum. To say he keeps us on our toes, would be an understatement!

I love the look on his face when he discovers something new or when he hears his daddy come home. I love watching them play together and can imagine, in years to come, all my boys running around the backyard together. I love his belly laughs, and how much he loves his dogs. I love his dancing, and his excitement over a chocolate chip cookie. I love how compassionate he is, and his random bear hugs.

The trucks and cars, balls and bats, dirt and sticks, snails, slugs, fearless acrobatics, and so much more. I certainly didn't play with these things growing up, but I'm learning how to now, and I love it! And I know he does too.

I can't wait to teach him how to swim, how to shoot hoops, how to play catch and hit a ball, how to ride a bike, and how to mow the lawn. But also how to cook and bake, how to fold laundry, and to open doors for women. Because raising a son, to me, is more than the rough and tough, it's my duty to raise a gentleman and a man of God. And one day, I hope his wife thanks me (as I did to my MIL).

But most of all, I want him to feel loved. Every single moment of the day. That, is my ultimate goal as a mom.

Thanks again Elizabeth for letting me share a little bit about why I love being a BOY MOM. I cannot wait to hear all the other stories coming this week, and throughout this series!

  1. What a cutie! I love that she wants to teach him how to cook, fold laundry and open doors for girls. It's so important we teach our boys to be well rounded and to act as gentlemen!

    1. I know! So sweet, right? I completely agree too. We need to teach our boys to be well rounded... in fact my husband is the one that does the cooking for us! I hope he can pass his skills on to our son!
