Boy Moms - Guest Post

Hello!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  Despite more cold weather, we had a lovely rather uneventful weekend at home, except for the fact that Mac decided that he didn't need a nap AT ALL this weekend.  What?!!  Two naps.  This is not OK.  I don't think I realized how much we (as in me and Ryan) need that 2 hour break in the middle of the day to rest and recharge.  What is going on here?  Please tell me this was caused by a full moon or is just a phase and not indicative of what's to come.  He gave up his morning nap when he was only 9 months old, so I am NOT ready for him to give up that afternoon nap yet.  Ugh.  

Anyway, today I'm guest posting over on Elizabeth's blog, "Chain' Mason" as part of her Boy Moms Series, about what it's like being a boy mom and what has surprised me about having a boy.  It's a lot of talk about tractors and dirt and all things little boy.  I hope you'll head over there and check out what I had to say on the subject (or just check out the adorable photos of Mac).  I admit, I wanted to be a boy mom more than anything and it has not disappointed.  I'm excited and thrilled to be adding the title of "girl mom" to my resume this summer, but for now, this whole "boy mom" gig has been pretty darn awesome.

  1. Such a cute post! In this house, we are fully all things neat and clean, glittery and sparkly, and PINK, so when we found out C was a boy I was a little nervous. I don't know what to do with dirt and bugs and things with wheels!!! I guess that's what Dad's for, right? Can't wait to experience these things for myself. :-)

  2. I agree, I love being a boy mom. I need that nap time too!

  3. Lovely post. I'm so excited to become a boy mom myself. I always thought I wanted girls but then my nephew/godson changed all that.

  4. Thank you so much for guest posting! And I totally agree... my husband was in AZ for spring training this weekend so it was just me and the little man and I SO needed those afternoon naps!

  5. Thanks for this lovely post and waiting for some interesting post ahead.
