I love being a boy mom. It has been the biggest blessing of my life. But sometimes, I can't believe this is my life. You know you're a boy mom when....

The trucks start to take over your house...and your life.

You constantly find our child playing in dirt.

Your child tries to control you with the remote.

Your garage is filled with even more things that go than you thought possible.

The car obsession isn't limited to toys.

Everything becomes a hideout.

The obsession with all things sports related begins early too.

And this is what you get when you try to take a picture together. 

Now that I'm fluent in all things boy, I wouldn't have it any other way. Mother's hold their son's hand for a moment, but their hearts forever.

But did I mention the dirt? You find dirt, dirt, and more dirt everywhere.

Part of being a boy mom is dealing with a sometimes stinky and sweaty boy. In Hudson's room we use the Diaper Genie to contain the stinky smell boys make...and thank heavens it works well! Right now you can receive a $25 Spa Finder Wellness gift card when you purchase 3 or more varieties of Diaper Genie at Target. Keep your Target receipt and click here to claim your gift card. While supplies last.

  1. Hudson makes being a "boy mom" look cute and fun! And do-able ;)

    I recently discovered your blog and love it! I love how you dress Hudson and you really are a great mother to a son! He looks like he really enjoys life! I have a 5 yo girl and 20 month old son and we all have red hair too! Keep that population going! However I think I need to up the boy things in our house...my son is always my daughter's dress up buddy and we are all covered in sparkles on a daily basis...hmmm dirt vs sparkle? Caprice

  3. Oh, the life of a boy mom! It's too funny! So much dirt and noise and so many trucks and trains. But little boys are just the best! H is getting cuter by the day - how does it keep doing it?!

  4. I have the opposite problem. They're always messing with my makeup and playing with my jewelry :-)

  5. I get this. Boy, do I get this. I've got 3 boys (age 10, 6, and 10 months) and 1 girl (8). The cars and the dirt and the baseball and the mud in my tub. Wow. So messy. So worth it!

  6. I feel like you just described my life to a T. In fact I cleaned up the mess that Mason made tonight and put away about 20 cars/trucks/planes/anything else with wheels you could think of. And I wouldn't have it any other way!

  7. Hudson is adorable!!! Love the picture of him and his trucks:)
