25 Rules For Moms With Boys

When I found out that my first baby was going to be a boy I flipped out a bit.  How in the world was I going to know what to do?  Several people around me kept telling me that I would be fine. With my two brothers and my rowdy side, I would do just fine.  I've had so much fun with him.  Between his tools, his growls, his love for machines, and his very intense rowdy side, we've been told that he is "all boy" and we agree.  


So what do I do with this boy?  Well, for now, we play.  Last night I read an article about 25 Rules For Moms With Boys.  Please don't go critique it, just read it to enjoy it.   Let it remind of memories made and good times ahead-that's how I read it.     


For me, it made me so happy as it brought up fun memories of things that are on that list.  We dance, we build forts, we read, we talk about feelings, we go outside, we play.  Beyond that, it gave me life to look forward to.  He's going to get older and more capable and become his own person.  I'm not in a rush to get there, but I am excited to see who he becomes and how I can be a part of his life.  He's such a fun guy and I love him!

  2. When I found out I'd given birth to a boy I was SOOOO happy! I was worried about when I'd do with a girl!!!

    Boys seem much more 'straight-forward' than girls, in most ways. And I have to say, there is a certain bond between a mom & her son that is very sweet.

    1. Oh, I was terrified when I found out Fern was a girl too. Same reaction-what am I going to do? I was scared either way!

  3. It's a lovely list. Even for us moms of daughters, it's so important and helpful to understand the boys who will grow up to be the young men in our daughters' lives. Thanks for sharing.

    1. I guess it does, now that I think about it. I just pictured Burl, but Fern is right there with us on all that!
