When I found out I was pregnant with my oldest son, I remember thinking it was certainly a girl. Someone I could play Barbies with and have tea parties with. Braid and curl her hair and put her in frilly dresses. I basically pictured myself reliving my childhood but as a 20 something-year-old woman.
When my Doctor told me I was having a boy (and there was no doubt about it), I didn’t really know what to think. How would I do playing TMNT and Superheros? Would all the fart and booger talks gross me out or would they even include me? Fast forward to my gender ultrasound of my second child and I remember thinking, “PLEASE GOD, let this be a boy. Boys are what I know and what I’m comfortable with at this point!”. And then he said “Another BOY!”. I was so excited to now have 2 boys to love. I am a proud BoyMom! Read more
When people hear the title Stay At Home Mom (dad/parent/grandparent, etc..I just say Mom because that’s what I answer to), some of them immediately think we have it super easy. I mean, after all, we don’t have a boss we answer to

However, for the rest of the people out there, my response is, “You’ve got to be kiddin’ me, right?”. In my 4 years of being a stay-at-home-mom, I have heard countless remarks and comments regarding my job. These are the ones that stand out to me the most. Read more
I will be the first to tell you that every child is different and we all parent differently. That being said, there are still plenty of moments and truths we experience and can all relate to. Read more

Every time I’m introduced to another Boy Mom I always smile and nod my head as if to say “Say no more, I get it.” Then there are usually a few moments of silence where we exchange thoughts in our head like, “I haven’t sat down on a pee covered toilet seat today! Hey, you neither? WINNING!”. Boy moms are kindred spirits. We are all dealing with the same grossness, hunger, and dirt that the next one is dealing with or has dealt with at some point, but don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t trade it for the world. I was handcrafted by God to be a Boy Mom and I wear the label proudly! Read more
