When I got pregnant the second time around, I was once honestly hoping for a girl. I had a boy already, so one of every would be just perfect, right? Well, instead, I ended up with a second baby boy, and let me tell you–I couldn’t be happier. I love being a boy mom!
Dressing Them is Easier and cheaper
Girl clothes are cute, however boy clothes are speedy and easy! No dealing with hair bows, princess costumes, tights and an infinite warfare each time we go to the store. For the most part, my boys content in whatever.
My boys are simply about as silly and rambunctious as they come. They love running, screaming, getting into things. Basically, they live existence at full velocity and they have a blast doing it!
I Worry Less
I love that I don’t have to worry that much with boys. My boys are rough and energetic. If they fall off the couch, they just laugh it off and keep playing. If they get dirty, they don’t even notice. They’re just too busy having fun
Boys Love Their Mamas!
I’m sure girls love their moms too, however from what I’ve heard, there is an greater one-of-a-kind love between mothers and sons.Whenever they are sickor in need of comfort, it’s all moms for sure. And I love that. My boys have always clung to me in a way that they don’t with anyone else. My relationship with them is so special.The hugs my youngest boy gives me every morning when he wakes up make me the happiest mom in the world.
I love their tender hearts
Just when you think they’re the toughest, roughest, sort of kid, they surprise you with the softest word or kindest touch. Melts my heart. Every time. My boys always knows how to comfort me when I’m sad or just when I need a hug.
I love their protective instinct
In spite of all that, these younger lads can be pretty chivalrous. They can’t bear to see me dragging a heavy load out to the trash. Or to get hurt. Or cry. I always tell them that “I’m stronger than I look,” however they don’t seem to believe me. They choose to protect me from all harm. And that’s fine with me. They’re always mommys protector no matter what age.
The gift of making men for the future is wonderful
The gift of making men for the future is wonderful. Being a part of how they see and have interaction in the world is a reward I relish. Teaching them and seeing them display emotion with perception and compassion is the BEST part.
I love to get away from the sparkly pink piles of drama and lock myself away with him and some legos and talk about robots and dinosaurs. No drama.
No need to worry about fixing hair
No hair to brush/braid! I have three boys and we can go from the shower to out the door in less that 30 minutes.
Being one of my most important women in their life
I have the privilege of being the most important woman in my boys’ lives. Sure, they love Grandma, and someday they’ll probably fall in love with another woman. But at least for now, I am the main female figure in their lives.
