So you’re a mom to all boys? I’m sure you already know how awesome it is, but I want to share ten of the best perks of being a mom to all boys with you.
#1. No one to share with
As a mom of all boys, there is one major perk, you don’t have to share any of your girl items with your sons. Okay, maybe they will want to try on one or two girlie things from time to time, but for the most part everything is yours.
#2. Endless kisses
Of course any child will give you endless kisses, but there is a special bond between a mother and a son (or sons). Those kisses he gives you mean everything.
#3. Extra protection for mom
Just think ahead ten years (if your boys are small) and think about the extra amount of protection you will have. Those boys are going to love all over you for many years to come and there’s never ending protection to go with you.
#4. The toys are cooler than dresses
Everyone says that girl toys are cool, but there are some awesome boy toys out there. I’ve always wanted to play with match box cars, play with squirt guns, and drive a fire truck around.
#5. No waiting in line
If my boys need to go to the bathroom and I don’t, I can just send them into the men’s bathroom. There’s nothing worse than waiting in the women’s bathroom line.
#6. Something different
I know what it’s like to be a girl and I can tell you it’s not all glamorous. It’s nice to be able to parent a child of a different gender. They are pretty much the opposite of me, so they have the tendency to be calm and laid back—which is great.
#7. It’s a special calling
I’m sure most moms dream of having a daughter and no one can plan for being a mom of all boys, but it’s an incredibly special mom position. There’s nothing you can naturally do to plan to have all boys and that’s what makes it even more special.
#8. Special bond with other all boy moms
Let’s face it, if you know a mom that has all boys, you think she’s a rock star. You know exactly what she’s going through and it has formed a special bond between the both of you.
#9. Endless compliments
If you’re raising your boys up right, then you’re teaching them that giving compliments is a polite thing to do. Between your significant other and your sons, you will always be told you are beautiful. It’s always nice to be caught off guard with a compliment. (Don’t get me wrong, they’ll also give you several comments that are not so complimentary)!
#10. You’ll eventually get your daughters
This is one of my favorites. The best perk of being a mom to all boys is that you eventually have your daughters. Daughter in laws and mother in laws can have incredible relationships if the right amount of work is put in. If you ever get down about not having a daughter to share life with, just consider all of the fun you will have with those future daughter in laws.
There are days when the bugs, dirt, and drama might be too much—but being a mom to all boys is something special. Not everyone has the title “mom to all boys” under her belt. You should always have your head held high because our world needs boys who are respectable, loving, and want to change the world in a positive way (and we all know they can’t do this without their moms).
