The joy of being a mother is endless. Whether you have a baby girl or a baby boy, motherhood in itself is a wonderful thing. We all love our kids with all our hearts and pray that they are healthy and happy because that’s all that matters.
However, being a mom to a boy is definitely an extraordinary experience and it is both weird and beautiful. Here’s what being a mom to a boy means.
1. YOU GET TO BE SOMEONE’S FIRST TRUE LOVE
Some women go through life never experiencing what it’s like to be someone’s first love. But, mothers of boys know the feeling of being the center of the universe for someone. It is one of the truest forms of love.
2. YOU LEARN TO ENJOY THE CHAOS
Boys tend to be more hyperactive than girls. That’s why mothers often talk about the chaos their sons brought to their lives. Boys are messy and noisy, but they teach their moms how to survive and thrive in the chaos. They learn how to find what they are looking for and organize their son’s messiness faster and better.
3. YOUR BOY WILL TEACH YOU TO NOT TAKE YOURSELF SO SERIOUSLY
Your boy will teach you how to joke about everything because they find everything funny – from their bodily functions to Captain Underpants. They get giggly at every title and funny word. They will teach you how to lighten up and enjoy the little things.
4. YOU WILL LITERALLY HAVE TO WATCH YOUR EVERY STEP
One word – LEGOs. You will literally find yourself tiptoeing around the house watching your step to avoid the agonizing pain of stepping into your son’s “dangerous” toys.
5. YOU WILL ALSO REALIZE THAT THE REWARD OF HAVING YOUR SON IS WORTH EVERY RISK
It is scientifically proven that boys undertake many more bone-breaking risks than girls. However, the reward is really worth the risk. Seeing your boy climbing a tree willing to risk falling out of it just to reach that fruit is priceless.
6. YOU HAVE A PRINCE CHARMING FOR LIFE
Mothers of boys have the opportunity to live with their Prince Charming. One kiss from them and their hearts melt and all the worries disappear.
7. YOU WILL FINALLY UNDERSTAND EVERYTHING THAT CONFUSED YOU ABOUT BOYS AS CHILDREN
Every moment of being a mother to a little boy is a new revelation. We get to see how they think which is always an interesting experience. Plus, we finally know why boys tease girls on the playground.
8. … FINALLY, A MAMA’S BOY IS A GOOD THING TO BE
Because we raised them to be respectful to women!
