‪#‎TheMominator‬ 
It was a beautiful late August summer day, and I took my son to the park. He went running straight for a very tall climbing wall that seemed to be miles high for his chubby little hands and body. He barreled up to the playground climbing wall and immediately began to scramble up, and my heart skipped a beat, and I moved to pull him down, fearing he would fall and hurt himself.

But I stopped myself.

I wanted desperately to shield him from every bump, bruise and scrape he will ever endure to every loss, heart ache and heart break that one endures through life. Oh how my heart thundered in my ears, yet I knew I had to back away, only close enough to catch him if he fell, but far enough away so he did not know I was there. He confidently struggled to the top, hesitated, and turned around triumphantly to smile down at me before giggling and sliding down that terribly long slide.

I realized he had that brave youthfulness that has somehow over the years ebbed away from me, he wasn't scared of all the bumps and bruises and scars that one learns in this journey of life. I remember bold courage of youth, the innocence of not knowing to proceed with cautious optimism that comes with the crashes, bumps, scrapes and scars of life. If you are lucky, you learn to wear those scars with pride and not to hide them in shame. Either way, you become cautious, and lose the wonder of youth, when the world is a new horizon of infinite possibilities.

Here is the deal on being a mom: I would instantly offer myself to ancient Aztec Indians to rip open my chest and remove my still beating heart if it meant the existence and survival of my child. Yes, being a mom does that, you love something so much there is not a question you would sacrifice your own life for theirs, and at any given moment on any given day. Loving someone that deeply is scary, you want to shield and protect your child fiercely. There must be some sort of primal instinct, like momma bear or as I call it, #TheMominator instinct kicks in, #TheMominator makes ‪#‎TheTerminator‬ look like a cute puppy, and I would bet most moms agree. I want his life to be an easier, gentler life and know nothing but sheer joy. But one can never know great happiness without knowing equal sadness. After all, I owe it to him to put his life before my own selfish insecurities. It's my duty as a parent to see that he learns the tools and skills necessary to survive, endure and hopefully have a family of his own someday. In order to do that, a parent must stand back and let them scrape their knee, struggle to stand up, brush themselves off and move on, even if someday it's away from me. It's the absolute hardest thing I have ever endured, both beautiful yet heartbreaking at the same time. But that's the deal. That's being a parent, and I fully and completely signed up for this. If I want him to be the person I hope he will become, I cannot extinguish his brave curiosity, someday I won't be around to kiss away the hurt, and someday soon he won't want me to. I watched him make new friends today, laughing and playing tag with sheer JOY smeared across his face as I stood on the side, protectively watching over him like the helicopter mom I'm trying desperately not to be. I noticed his chubby hands and face are starting to thin and become more agile and muscular and he is growing, seemingly at the speed of light.

Later, as we leave the park, his hand in mine, I look up at the sky and am reminded that summer is fleeting, and my little boy is too. I will relish, cherish and remember each moment, I pray.
