Boys on the Brain

This just in:  Scientists have discovered that the majority of human female brains contain genetic material that is found only on the Y chromosome.  This material is not there when the female is born.  Somehow it arrives later, and the assumption is that this occurs when the female is pregnant with a male fetus.

Once again, science explains what I knew all along.

When each of my sons was born I thought about the fact that my job was to separate from them, first physically and then psychologically.  I knew, however, that I would not ever stop being their mother. Though I would never feel their heartbeats inside me again, somehow the flow of their lives would become more and more intimate with mine as I came to know them as individuals, separated from me and yet so intricately connected.

My sons will be with me always.

“Wonderful, wonderful!  And yet again, wonderful!”

  • I love your way of describing a mother’s job and our connection to our children. I do wonder about the Y chromosome thing – what if you don’t have a male child or any child for that matter. I’m no scientist, but that doesn’t make any sense.
