I am a mom with only sons. They are all young now, but I worry that I will not be as close to them when they are adults as I am with my mom. My mom is my best friend and we talk all the time. In all the families I know the sons grow up and spend more time with their wife's family. I am afraid I won't have those special moments that a mom has with her daughter, ie, wedding planning, baby showers, birth of grandbabies.
Am I just being irrational? Is there anyone who has a good story of being close to your adult sons and being included in all of their special moments?
Please do not bash me, I am having a hard enough time with it already.
