Boy Moms Are Da Bomb

Ladies: are you ...

- Super-sensitive to the smell of urine?
- Fabulous at choosing durable items?
- Unfazed by leaping and tackling?
- Well-versed in fart jokes?
- Constantly saying, "Stop pulling on your penis!" and variations thereof?

Well then! If this is you ... you might be a boy mom.

To those who aren't, the condition sounds hideous. I know. I've been told on more than one occasion that the stories on my blog serve as great birth control. I'm not sure whether to be offended or proud, but it's true: boys are an adventure, especially when you yourself have never been a boy. And having multiple boys, like I do, four to be exact, is like having a bunch of puppies tumbling around all the time. BIG puppies. Big, starving, bold, opinionated, endlessly energetic puppies.

But it's amazing, more than anything else. And we should be proud, because it's a tough job, not for the faint of heart - which means boy moms are a unique breed. We have to be adaptable, good at understanding a male perspective and then offering up the female side. We have constitutions of steel, accustomed to finding creepy-crawlies and stinky socks, and tending to bloody injuries with the calmness of a medic. We're in the rare position of teaching our sons not only their self-worth, but the worth of women. We know that boys' hearts are big and soft and broken as easily as anyone else's, even if they show it differently - and we're their safe place to land when that happens.

We didn't choose the boy mom life; the boy mom life chose us. And we wouldn't have it any other way. (Despite the scads of perfect strangers who nosily ask us on the regular if we're going to "try for a girl.")


Being a boy mom is awesome. So awesome, in fact, that it deserves its own T-shirt - which is where Boymom Designs comes in! And it's your lucky day, because they're giving one of my readers their VERY OWN BOYMOM SHIRT, just like the one this stunning model is wearing below:


... Okay, so it's not a stunning model, it's just me. But cool T-shirt nonetheless.

I LOVE mine: it's so super-soft, pre-shrunk and wrinkle-free, and has a really flattering fit. If T-shirts aren't your thing (whyyyy?), Boymom Designs has a ton of different ways to display your pride - long sleeves, hoodies, bags, you name it. (AND there are Girlmom things too, so nobody has to be left out.) And pssst ... you can use the code 10105 at checkout and save 60%!!!

  4. My husband and I have 6 boys the youngest two boys have ADHD, so you HAVE to expect the unexpected......1 girl and she is the youngest....BTWS she is JUST LIKE the boys!! I love every minute of my time with them, even if I'm imagining me pulling my hair out. I would have to say they are all comedians in their own right. Example we had a tire swing in the back yard, and one afternoon last summer I heard my youngest boy singing, so I looked out. My fifth boy was pushing him while my 6th boy was standing on the tire swing singing Wrecking ball. LOL there are plenty more but I'm sure you low that �� cherub449@gmail.com

  7. My favorite thing about being a boy mom is the moments I have to yell "Get your penis off your brother's face!" It takes a lot of effort not to giggle.

  10. I love my boys cuddles. I also have 4 boys. Between all the chaos, wrestling, and stench, they are very affectionate. I like several others enjoy being the queen. I love this crazy life that chose me and I wouldn't change a thing. Although I would pay a small fortune for even a 1/4 of their energy!

  13. My favorite part of being a Boymom is that I will always have an "excuse" to stay current on the various nerdy/boyish things I've always been interested in!
    And the giant tacklehugs. My son is a super snuggler and gives literally the best hugs I've ever had. And I get them all the time because he's out of his "I don't like momma" phase finally! ❤️

  16. I love being a Boymom because of their sweet little hugs and love. My little guys could break my favorite vase, but then tell me "Mama you're my Princess," and everything will be right with the world. -Clsmith3244@hotmail.com

  18. Hi! Oh I love so many things about being a boy mom which came as a wonderful surprise since I always dreamed of having a little girl. But my two boys have made me so glad I was chosen to be their boy mom. I love the relationship I have with each one and how they love me even when I'm not being the best mom. The love between a mother and son was something I never understood until I was blessed to become a boy mom. �� my3tolove@gmail.com

  24. I love that they can go from being rough and tumble one minute, to sweet and snuggles the next. And, honestly, I love the boy clothes!

  25. I love being an all boy mom! I love watching them with their dad and how they have "boy nights" together when mommy gets a night out to herself. They look out for each other. I love the funny things I get to hear, and the even funnier things I get to say out loud that I never imagined I would say. I grew up with 4 sisters, so having 3 boys is crazy. Crazy and wonderful. I wouldn't have it any other way! Ali.holt at yahoo.com

  26. Favorite thing about being a boy mom? Last weekend we had a female cousin stay the night and she wanted to watch some horrible show, Lego elves. It was wretched and then she sang the song for the rest of the weekend. I looked at my husband and said so I think that I can handle cailou over that any day. My stinky, dirty boys are the light of my life and I wouldn't trade it for cute girl clothes and braids.
