My little boy — he thinks mama is the most awesome person in the world, who sees mama as his superhero. He is convinced he will spend the rest of his life following mama around. He doesn’t know yet that someday when he’s grown, I will stop being the center of his world.He doesn’t know this yet, but I do.
I know that someday he will stop following me around and wanting to be with me all the time. I know that eventually, he will crave for independence and possibly wish for a life away from me. Someday he will stop needing me this much and depend on me like this.
I also know that someday he will meet the girl of his dreams, the love of his life whom he will love with all his heart and make the center of his world.

Someday I would have to step aside and be in the background as he builds his own family.
I’m going to dance the ducky song and laugh out loud in public with him. I’m going to bake cookies and plant trees with him while he still likes hanging out with me. I’m going to listen to his endless stories while I’m still his best friend forever.
I’m going to enjoy his every kiss while he still thinks it’s not embarrassing to kiss mom in front of his friends. I’m going to hug him and comfort him for as long as he needs me.
Someday I will stop being the woman of his life and I will accept that. But for now, I will enjoy his promises, hugs, and kisses.
Hopefully, I will have more moments with him I can save as memories in my head before I someday stop being the center of his universe.
