Yesterday, Big J walked up to me holding a brand new pair of underwear.

New underwear is a big deal with these boys. BIG deal. And yes, I’m talking about underwear.

Anyways, he wanted to know which Transformers character was on said underwear.

I took a look and narrowed it down to two characters.

“It looks like Ironhide or Sideswipe,” I said standing in the hallway outside the bathroom.

I turned to walk into the bathroom and saw the hubby beaming at me.

“That IS Ironhide. My wife KNOWS her Transformers characters. That is awesome.”

It felt like a rite of passage for me – I AM a boy mom and I embrace it with all that I am.

I even know my Transformers characters.

My shining moment of the week. What was yours?
