You know your a momma to a boy when…

Remember all of my “you know your prego when…” well, I thought it would be fun to do one of these again, only this time, write about what it’s like for me as a mother to a boy! Some of these may or may not be the case if you have a girl baby too, I might found out soon enough :)

-You know your a momma to a boy when…

-when baby gates become your new best friend-

-and faux hawks are suddenly super adorable-

-when you find yourself constantly saying, “Sit down”, “please stop banging your head on everything”, “don’t bite”, “be gentle”, “What does a dinosaur say?”, “eeeee, don’t eat that”… etc.-

-when you go out to a store or to softball games or coffee shop… or anywhere… and your boy walks around, meeting strangers and making his silly faces at them-

-when a family friend or a stranger wants to hold him and you hold your breath and hope he doesn’t slap them right in the face. Yep, he’s a slapper-

-when pool time becomes a must if it’s nice outside. This boy LOVES the outdoors and can throw a pretty big fit when being brought back inside :/ –

-when “Roar like a Dinosaur Day” excites you because the little man thinks he’s is one-

-when your house looks like this most of the time, you clean and clean and clean only to have it back this way within seconds. I wonder if little girls can do this much damage?! i might know soon!-

-when the boy has such an obsession with cords and that leaves you constantly on guard when indoors-

-when it seems stomach is already an endless pit. Makes me nervous for the teen years!-

-when a diaper is his favourite “outfit” and putting clothes becomes upsetting :)-

-even better… being nakey! This is a daily occurence-

-when you watch him adore his daddy and it almost always warms your heart and you wonder if he will want to be just like him. love it so, so much-

Well that’s all my prego mind can think of right now… MUCH more of these to come I’m sure :)

    :) What a fun post. So I have to ask… do you end up with many pee accidents when you let him go naked? :) Josiah definitely tries to get away from me when I’m changing him, but I’ve yet to let him run loose for more than a few seconds for fear of him peeing everywhere! haha! Boys are great :)

      Yes! We’ve had one, thankfully on the tile floor! He isn’t a huge peer, i mean, when you take his diaper off. I hope that doesn’t mean something isn’t working, i’m sure everything is fine though haha!

    Love it! Boys are wild!!! Now that I have 2 it’s even more crazy (i really have 3 but 2 are little)! I was just thinking the house thing yesterday bc it’s a million degrees outside and I was like guess this is how it will have to be w not having a backyard. The couch is a trampoline, everything is a gun, pillows are for smashing on heads and the floor is to catch u when you land on each other!!! Anyway! I hear ya girly!!! And yeah- pls don’t smash ur head on the wall/couch/my leg/ur brother, etc!!! Zachary is a whole new wild I never knew with Diego!

    haha Jami! I had to laugh out loud at many of these things because they are sooo familiar sounding! You’re not alone and I don’t think girls are all that much different!
    Gabriela LOVES cords, our house is constantly looking like the picture you posted, she wants to eat everything, and is now starting to climb on everything as well! (we are working on the no slapping thing)!
    ahhh babies are wonderful but certainly a lot of work!? :)

    Oh my gosh, the photo of Chase in the pool is AMAZING! It’s so hard to photograph kids because they’re always moving but somehow you’ve gotten the shutter speed just right! :D

    Chase is such a wonderful little man. My son Finn is only 12 weeks old so I have all of the ‘nakey runs’ and dinosaur-loving to come.

    I hadn’t caught up with your blog for a while so I have only just found out you’re pregnant again. Congratulations!! :)
