8 Reasons I Love Being a Boy Mom

January 2, 2018 No Comments

JRP_3372copy (1)Let me start this off by saying that this post is not a dig at girl moms or to say being a boy mom is better. Nor is this meant to imply that I wouldn’t love a daughter one day, because of course I would. What I’m sharing today is simply all the things I love about having boys.

I can shape them into gentlemen

This is probably the biggest one in light of all the recent news stories on inappropriate male behavior. I didn’t participate in the social media #metoo frenzy for various reasons, but I’ve experienced my fair share of unwanted comments and even some situations where I had to be physically aggressive to keep myself safe.
There are so many wonderful gentlemen out there who are overshadowed by the animalistic predator men who view women as objects for their enjoyment. I have been blessed with the opportunity to shape two young boys to become the former, not only by what I deliberately teach them, but what they observe watching the Ryan’s behavior toward me and other women around him. I feel like God has given me the opportunity to better our society of males by entrusting me with TWO to raise right.

Chivalry won’t be dead and manners will be ingrained

Does your husband know how to properly set a table? Like does he know forks go on the left? Does he pull out your chair? Open your door? As much as I love Ryan, those things aren’t ingrained in him. It’s something you have to be taught and I definitely am already teaching Porter at the age of four about good manners vs. bad manners.

I don’t have to host a wedding

Since we only plan on having one more, at the very most we’ll be responsible for one wedding.

Boys love their moms

Of course they love their Dad’s too, but that mother-son bond is unique and I creepily stare at them with doting eyes on the regular.

I don’t have to clean poop out of a vagina

That’s all I’m gonna say about that.

I don’t have to have a teenage girl

Because I hear teenage girls just love their moms; I know I did.

I save money

Being honest about the fact that I would probably spend way more on clothes if I had two girls vs two boys. And that would likely continue until adulthood.

I’ll have special relationships with my Daughter-in-laws

I’ll have such a pent up need for estrogen in the family that I’ll probably spoil and love my daughter-in-laws like they were my own more than I would if I literally had my own daughter. But only if they’re quality girls. If they aren’t, I’ll just do my MIL duty of intimidation.

So… if whenever we decide to try for a third and I end up with a third boy, don’t give me the “I’m so sorry!” charade. Although I’m sure I’ll 100% get at least a handful of comments like that from random complete strangers.

    All real and legit reasons! I love being a boy mom too! And the diaper thing sounds gross, but so practical!

    Hi! I’m Bethany and I live in Sacramento, CA with my husband and two little boys. Most of the topics you’ll see on here are about motherhood and wine, but I write about pretty much whatever strikes me as a topic I need to cover! I don't take motherhood too seriously and I like to have fun! Cheers! Read More

    • I miss my hair lady 😭😭. So many of us are struggle city as far as hair goes each day. I’ve been wearing my new visor from @nordstrom (as seen in this video) and lots of my Sacramento blogger babe friends have been rocking cute hats as well! Good excuse to go hat shopping am I right?! 🤗 🧢

    • This whole coronavirus thing and economic collapse has absolutely sucked! If you follow my stories, I’m sure you can deduce what my opinion is on all of this 🤪. HOWEVER...I did very much enjoy the crazy discounts that took place over on @nordstrom online! I snagged this dress and hat for 60% off 🤩. Too bad I don’t have anywhere to wear them 😂🤦🏻‍♀️ #reopencalifornia •

    • And just like that, our little nugget is 2️⃣ months old. He’s smiling a lot (but not for this pic), babbling more and more and isn’t much for long naps. He loves to nurse but takes bottles like a champ. He seems to really enjoy his siblings (especially Preston). He loves being around people and isn’t a fan of being in a room by himself - background conversations seem to sooth him. He LOVES to snuggle; his favorite way to fall asleep is with his face nuzzled into your chest. He really is the sweetest thing and we are so happy he’s ours. We love you Fordy boy 💙 .

    • Yesterday we went to visit my grandmother at her assisted living facility. She’s 92 and to be honest, not doing great. Her mind wasn’t the sharpest when this whole thing started, but being on lock down and isolated from her family has caused her to decline. She hasn’t been hugged since this lock down started, which is so bad for her immune system and mental health. I’m not going to sugar coat this. It’s really hard on everyone, especially the elderly who live alone. I mean, I’m glad she is still alive, but jeez. My fear is that we will lose her and we will not have had the chance to even hold her hand. I unexpectedly lost my cool and tears started flowing out. Thankfully she can’t see that well and had no idea. 
I know seeing us all (even with the window barrier) brightened her day. So at least there’s that. We do whatever we can do to make it through this challenging time, right? 🤍 .
