Boy Mom


You know you are a BOY MOM when……….

  • The first time you change your baby’s diaper he pee’s all over you.
  • Before you know it your two year old child has dropped his pants, and is peeing in a public fountain.
  • You realize peeing everywhere is a part of the potty training process…..or at least HE think so.
  • You realize that destroying towers of blocks and Lego’s is a fun thing ….for HIM.
  • You realize his favorite thing to do is tackle or BE tackled….
  • You find your preschooler is proud to be naked……and you realize it’s a guy thing.
  • You step on toy trucks barefooted as you walk through the house…OUCH!
  • Your child is obsessed with trains, planes, and tools.
  • Your child tries to turn his blanket into a “Magic Carpet” as he is climbing out of his window onto the roof.  
  • Farting and burping are a form of pride, and a “rite of passage”.
  • Bodily functions are a form of entertainment.
  • The bedtime routine turns into repeating “Take a shower, use soap, and wash your hair WITH SHAMPOO!”
  • When you have to do a smell test every morning to make sure your son puts on deodorant.
  • When you walk into your child’s room and it smells like a locker room.
  • When Axe body spray takes over your house and you accept it, because it is better than the alternative.
  • You help your child pack his suitcase for camp, and when he returns it is just as you packed it.
  • You find dirty, stinky socks in random places all over the house.
  • Your son thinks it is fun to dangle from the roof.
  • You find your son mid-air jumping from the roof into the pool.
  • Your child scales the fence instead of waiting for you to open the gate with the key.
  • Things about your husband seem to make more sense.
