28 things moms of boys know
1. To check the toilet before visitors use it to make sure it’s clean/dry.
2. That air freshener should always be kept near the toilet.
3. When boys get older they talk more if they don’t need to make eye contact with you, so car trips are an amazing way to get awesome conversations going.
4. Boys are the BEST cuddly-snugglers…even when they are pre-teens!
5. Man, they can eat!!! Unbelievable.
6. They like to have ‘sword fights’ in the bath with each other.
7. They fight and get over it seconds later.
8. Fart jokes never get boring.
9. Underwear is optional.
10. They have lots of energy (testosterone) so need physical activities and sport.
11. Before you know it, they go from little boys to young men towering over you.
12. You miss the little boy while you’re proud of the young man they’ve become; it’s a weird, happy and sad feeling.

14. Play fighting is scary to watch but it’s not going anywhere, no matter how often you tell them to stop.
15. They love being nude.

22. Sitting down at kids’ parties to do a craft activity…what??! No!
23. Expect to be out and active every day. They love it and they love it when you are doing it too.
24. Going to the store and shopping, in general, are cause for a “paralysis attack”.
