Everything!!! I really can’t narrow it down. I’m obsessed. He’s still only four months though!

I do like that they don’t make as many cute clothes, so it saves me money on buying every teeny tiny sundress in existence haha

happytobemrsg :  I have an 11 year old boy. I can’t tell you how amazing it is to be a mom to a boy. especially since I grew up with all sisters. We never  had boys around and it’s been so fun to watch him grow up so far. I can’t really pin point why it’s so special without sounding ridiculous. But something about knowing i’m raising a gentlemen and someone’s future husband and father is so special. He’s so tough and athletic and it’s so odd to me to look at this young man and still see my chubby cheeked baby boy. I see what the rest of the world sees, a coach’s dream, an honor roll student, a young person filled with more faith than I thought possible for someone his age, and an all around loveable little man. But to me, he’s just my little baby in a bigger body lol. I’m so glad I got to experience being his mom. Boys are awesome 🙂

pink.lemonade :  this too. boys are easy, tshirt, shorts\pants, socks\shoes=done. Girls have matching socks, matching headband, etc. there’s not too much thought when it comes to boys clothes.

Well, I have a boy and a girl. I like that I don’t have to ‘do’ the boy’s hair…omg…this takes SO much time and energy.

happytobemrsg :  The other night my 2.5 year old told my husband while he was putting him to bed “I love Mommy so much” 

No one loves their mama like a little boy. Make sure you kiss and hug him often, you will get it back ten-fold. 🙂

I’m about a month away from giving birth to my baby boy and these insights are so special to me. I was raised in a house of girls, as was Darling Husband. I know NOTHING about boys. I’m so excited! 

Sunshine09 :  that literally made me cry!

morganc8 :  choked me up too! Boys are little heart fillers. Just wait for the day you get presented with your first chubby little fist full of dandelions that he picked for you. And in the next second he’ll stomp on a bug and say ‘got it!’ lol…

happytobemrsg :  You’ve got me too choked up to try to explain what I love about my son, and he’s 32.  lol.  He has been such a joy as my first born.  Strong of heart,  he’s got my back, adventurer, solid, truthful, faithful, generous, kind, incredibly smart, oh gosh, he makes me proud in so very many ways.

I have two sons, 6&8. I love everything about having boys! They are sweet and cuddly, they are easier to manage than my friends’ daughters. They are cheaper to maintain. I literally only buy new clothes for my oldest and my youngest will get a few shirts here and there but for the most part all the clothes are passed down. They are super easy to shop for. They love cuddling. The other day my oldest said “mommy I was wondering if when you’re done studying we can cuddle on the couch”. 😍❤️😍❤️  The sweet thing is they often ask for this and it warms my heart! My youngest thinks I’m his wife and keeps asking me how old I’ll be when he’s 67 or 35 or whatever age he thinks of at the time which is so funny! I adore them and if I could stare holes into their faces they wouldn’t have faces lol!

Aww this is so heart warming! I personally would like a son in the future but I’m quite scared because I’ve grown up with just girls– my sisters, cousins ect. and I didn’t have too many guy friends growing up.

I’m just a little worried that I won’t be able to rough-house with them if that makes sense?

Any moms run into this kind of problem? 

My hubby says he was a nightmare kid when he was little so I’m more than a little scared lol

I have two boys. An 8 year old and a one year old (it’s his birthday today!). I cannot imagine having girls now that I have my boys. Their world revolves around their mama and you will know it! It’s a very special type of love between a mom and her little boy. I just live for them, they are my everything.

In my house there’s dh, my 1 year old son and my male cat,  so I am the only girl.  Lol I love my boys and I think my son is just the cutest little guy and I love dressing him up in little man outfits.  Also I am going to raise him to be a gentleman and his future wife one day is going to be one lucky lady! 🙂
