Recently I walked into the vet’s office to pick up some medication for Wynston. Upon arrival I was greeted by a receptionist whom I’ve only met a couple of times. She asked, “What is your name, again?” “Amanda,” I replied. “Wynston’s mom.” “Ohhhh! Wynston’s mom!!! I remember now!” I just smiled. That’s not the first time I’ve been referred to as Wynston’s mom, and I’m proud. I’m completely grateful for my dog mom status and soak up every ounce of the glory. Owning the role of Wynston’s mom is simply the best thing ever. He’s the perfect boy and he makes me a better person. In celebration of National Pet Day, I’ve compiled a list of reasons why I love being Wynston’s mom.
Why I Love Being Wynston’s Mom
I know how loved he is by soooooo many people.
I never feel alone with him by my side.
He’s the perfect model.
He defies negative stereotypes.
I can take him anywhere.
Our bond is incomparable.
He constantly inspires me.
He makes the best travel companion.
He always knows when I need him most.
I can be obsessed with him and he doesn’t think I’m weird.
He’s by my side no matter what life throws at me.
He’s the reason I have an incredible career.
The role of “Wynston’s mom” is my favorite thing in this world. Some people don’t like being defined by a motherly role, but in this particular case, I embrace every second of it. Wynston is the reason I live my life as a full time pet blogger and social media account executive. I’m forever grateful for his inspiration.
For National Pet Day, I want to hear why you love being the mom or dad to your animals. Tell me in the comments!
