Maci Bookout has been single for a while now after splitting with her on-again, off-again boyfriend, Kyle King, a few months ago. Now, she’s explaining why she’s happy to be single and telling all about how her 4-year-old son Bentley has been doing in school.
“I’ve been single for four or five months — happily. It’s awesome,” Maci said during MTV’s Restore The Shore. “[I love] not having to be anyone’s mom but Bentley’s. These guys [I’ve met and dated] are cool, and then three months into it, I’m like, ‘You are a child and I’m your mother. You’re grounded. Leave me alone.’ The only mom I want to be is Bentley’s mom.” Since Maci is a mother, she needs someone who can deal with her day to day life and that can be hard to find at her age.
One guy she can count on is Bentley, and he’s been doing one heck of a job impressing her lately. “He gets gold stars every day. I’m so proud of him,” Maci brags. “They always write comments on why they get gold stars and normally it’s because he’ll clean up without being asked or follows all the rules.” Bentley sounds like he’s really turning into a little gentleman and that speaks volumes about how he was raised.
In addition to excelling at school, Bentley has also taken up a new hobby! “For the past months all he’s been doing is riding his bicycle or dirt bike. I can’t get him off of it. I’m like, ‘can’t we say your ABCs or something?'” Bentley has found his passion and that’s amazing. He could really be a force to be reckoned with in the dirt biking world when he grows up!
