Being a Mummy to Boys…

I always wanted to be a Mummy to boys, I had this vision in my mind of four sons who loved their sweet, little Mummy. Who would be always covered in mud, eating me out of house and home and bring home the most beautiful young women once they were older.

When Grayson was born I could not believe how beautiful he was, when out and about I would not get 100 yards without being stopped, he is going to be a lady-killer they would say.


When we were told that Grayson’s problems whatever they are would probably only manifest in boys I sobbed hard, silly I know but that dream I had been taken away, I couldn’t see how we could ever have another child.


Deacon changed my world when he was born and seemed ok, this little boy who much like his brother was just beautiful, as he started to develop my love for him was so strong, the feeling of knowing he was ok.

I wish I had another son, I would never be without Addison, she very much is my special girl and our relationship I pray is strong for life, but there is something as special about being a Mummy to my boys, the terrors they both are.

It has not been an easy week for my boys, but they are both strong and soldier on, like their Daddo in that way and let me take the most beautiful photos of them to remember that even though times maybe hard they keep smiling.

  • Being a mum to boys is the best. I never knew what it would be like to be a mum to boys and always thought I’d have a girl as I had nothing to compare it to. I worried I wouldn’t be able to interact or know what to do, but I love it and wouldn’t swap it for the world. You have two amazing boys with the most gorgeous eyes x

  • I love having a boy too. while I’d have loved to have had a girl to remove the expectation of them being a farmer, N is just a star. Your boys have such gorgeous eyes.

  • You Baby Me Mummy

    Gorgeous boys! I always wanted a girl, so can relate in the opposite way if that makes sense! x

    • It does, I totally get that, I must say I would never be without Addison, she brought something to my life I was never expecting and we are the best of friends xx

  • They really are gorgeous boys, and it’s so refreshing to hear someone speak so positively about being a ‘boy mum’. So many people are all about the girls, where as I love having Freddie (and Sasha too of course) and I couldn’t imagine NOT having a boy, he really rocks my world! x

    • Yippee, I agree it seems something that is a little of a topic we should not mention, but there is something so special about having a boy xxx

  • Donna Wishart

    You really do have beautiful boys – and they are the most beautiful photos. I do think the relationship with boys and girls is so different x

  • They are so beautiful, I have 2 boys and people say you should not generalise but they are typical boys, and that is how they have grown and evolved. And do you know what I embrace that their own personalities are so unque and I too so love being a Mum to boys, not that I would have loved girls any less x
