Butch Mom

I have
two tattoos
short messy hair
torn jeans
worn out melissa tapes
even older sex pistol ones
I like camping
and don't mind sweat, in fact I love it
I don't see myself as domestic
I don't see myself driving a volvo
or darning socks
there is no june cleaver here
and I detest pink, in all of it's forms
when my son was born my mother said
"it is probably good that you have a son"
not a daughter.
My fairy princess arrived 3 years ago today
and I will tell you this
I would do anything
to make her dreams come true
even make a 4 foot
pink dragonfly cake
and buy pink wings
and wave a magic wand
I would do anything
for her

Absolutely! Happy Belated birthday Torin! I am in SF and have a boy who is 27 months old. Your short note made me cry! Our children are very lucky indeed!

Happy Birthday! I am a "femme" mom in DC, with a son who is 100% "boy", and I would play with trains and rubber snakes and roll in the mud for him. I understand...and your words are beautiful.
