As someone who grew up with a brother, I know how challenging boys can be. Although I have experience being a sister to one, I also know how being a boy mom can absolutely transform you.
I see it in my friends, and I’ve seen it in my mom. Don’t get me wrong, this transformation is far from a bad one. However, if you think raising a baby girl and a baby boy would be the same, you’re in for a surprise, momma.
If you’re expecting a boy, I’m sure you’ve already set your mind on what kind of a mom you’ll be. You’ve set your boundaries and have a clear idea of the things you won’t tolerate. Well, get ready to see all of that change.
Being a “helicopter mom” won’t do you any good as a mother to a boy. To keep your sanity and protect your nerves, you’ll have to arm yourself with a lot of patience and courage. Raising a little explorer will do that to you.
This doesn’t have to be a bad thing. Being a boy mom changes you into a stronger and more determined woman. You become more open to challenges, and your small fears will become a thing of the past. Your baby boy will make you stronger, more adventurous, and you’ll love every second of it.
You know the deal – moms always talk about how rebellious baby boys are. They love to have fun, get dirty, and they can never stand still. Chances are, you’ll become quite a lot like that, too! He’ll wake up the side of you that you’ve long forgotten, and your inner child will be the happiest she’s ever been.
One thing’s for sure – your baby boy will become your best friend. Having a baby girl is a beautiful experience because you get a mini version of yourself, but moms and their sons share a special bond. You’ll become inseparable.
There’s nothing in this world that can break that special bond. One look into your boy’s eyes will tell you everything you need to know. How he’s feeling, what he’s thinking, and even if he’s up to something. And, let me tell you, he probably always is.
As a boy mom, you’ll have to say goodbye to a calm and cozy life. You’re about to get the biggest energy boost of your life. Yes, you can ask your boy to sit calmly. Most of the time, he’ll listen to his mommy. But not for too long.
While your baby girl might spend her days in the park making sand castles, your boy will be all over the place. One moment he’ll be climbing, the other he’ll be running around with 3 other boys he made friends with. You’ll never have a dull moment with him.
Most importantly though, he’ll remind you of just how exciting life can be. You’ll see the world as a huge playground, and you’ll start to find excitement in every little thing surrounding you.
Don’t be surprised if you stop caring about the little things that used to occupy your mind or stress you out before. For example, coming to work with a stain on your pants might even put a smile on your face because you’ll remember how it got there.
Your boy will help you fall in love with little things that you used to take for granted. Get ready for hours of talking about Pokémon and dinosaurs, while poop jokes will become your daily thing, no matter how many times you tell him they’re wrong.
Your boy will always find a way to put a smile on your face, even when he’s being mischievous. Things that used to ruffle your feathers will become something you find funny.
You won’t be able to imagine your days without his little rebellious adventures, even if it means you’ll have to give him a bath two times a day.
You’ll definitely loosen up because you’ll have to. If you want your boy to be happy and free, you’ll have to become cooler. Don’t stress too much about him getting dirty or thinking he’ll get hurt by running around the park.
He was born with strength that can endure his incredible energy. Trust him, and enjoy looking at how healthy and lively your little baby is. As a matter of fact, he’ll remind you how seriously you took things before he became a part of your life.
Don’t get me wrong, there’ll be some things you’ll appreciate even more, like how quiet your house is when he’s finally out of energy and falls asleep. But, after some time, you’ll start to miss the little foot taps on your floor…
Being a mom to a baby boy is a huge privilege, no matter how challenging it can be at times. It keeps you young forever because your son will always remind you of how beautiful it is to be a kid.
You’ll notice your inner child taking over when you’re with him. You won’t mind running around your backyard with him and getting dirty while you paint with your fingers.
Your baby boy will make you feel young and free, and you two will become each other’s best friends. He’ll remind you of the little girl you used to be, that’s finally able to come out and enjoy the life she always wanted to have.
And, the best part is: you’ll watch your baby boy grow into a wonderful man. You’ll be able to teach him what it means to be a good friend, a boyfriend, and a husband.
Don’t worry, there are some things he’ll never grow out of, and you’ll see them every time you look into his eyes, no matter how old he is.
That spark will always be there, and he’ll always be able to remind you to enjoy your life fully, never ignoring the side of you that likes to have fun. You won’t be able to experience that kind of bond with anyone else.
