You Know You’re a Boy Mom When…

being a boy mom means...

After our mom interviews yesterday with three boy moms, I was inspired to share this with you guys. I LOVE being a boy mom…but it’s not for the faint of heart.

Being a boy mom means…

  • Having bruises everywhere – and not having a clue where they came from. 
  • You’ve been tackled more today than Saquon Barkley has all season.
  • You know who Saquon Barkley is. 
  • You’ve given in to how much dirt is acceptable to sleep in. 
  • You know exactly which LEGO you just stepped on in the dark based on its imprint in your foot.
  • You know that if it’s taller than he is, he wants to climb it. And jump off. Again and again. And again.
  • When you hear “WATCH THIS!” you have a heart attack.
  • You’ve heard “WATCH THIS!” 1000000x in your son’s short life.
  • Your knowledge of construction vehicles/dinosaurs/race cars can rival any man’s. 
  • You live for the moments when your child stops running around like a crazy person and hugs you.
  • You need this post about how to wear out your high energy child.
  • You sometimes envy girl moms who can actually sit and finish a cup of coffee…in the morning. 
  • You have to clarify that you want your child to wash with soap.
  • You’ve given up all hopes that your child will ever be a polite eater.
  • When you hear your son say, “I love you, mommy,” it makes up for the fact that they’ve created enough laundry for an entire army of washing machines.
  • You’ve thrown out clothes that were beyond washing.
  • You’ve hidden THAT shirt that they want to wear over and over again.
  • If you want your son to do something, you know that all you have to do is turn it into a race or contest of strength.
  • You’ve acknowledged that a head butt from your son is a great sign of affection. The harder the head butt, the more he loves you.
  • You’ve dug through your vacuum dustbin searching for LEGO pieces.
  • It’s a regular occurrence for your child to drop his pants and pee in the grass – no matter who else is present!
  • You don’t even flinch when they burp or fart…in your face.
  • You know that their finest sports jersey is considered Sunday best.. 
  • You’ve looked into a diaper and wondered: “Is that poop…or testicles?”
  • You already know that no girl can ever love them as much as you do (and yet you hope some day someone will!) 
  • Going to Home Depot/Lowe’s with your son is akin to bringing them to Disney world. 
  • Whenever you enter someone’s home, you just pray that you can leave without them breaking something. 
  • You can comfortably breastfeed your son while he turns backflips over you.
  • You speak in noises more than actual words.
  • You will respond to a variety of names other than ‘mama,’ such as Owlette, Skye, Ghost Spider, Pink Power Ranger, Black Widow, or any other token girl superhero name.
  • You’ve said “be gentle” and “be careful” about 500000000x in their short lives. 
  • You think there should be a special kind of health insurance for little boys. 
  • At night, when you put them to bed, you squeeze them tight and watch them sleep, knowing that your time with them will always be too short. 
  • You are proud to be a boy mom.
