Boy Mom Life: Part 1

Experience the Joys and Challenges of Boy Mom Life

I get asked all the time what it's like being a boy mom. The words to describe it includes ... loud, smelly, entertaining, chaotic and absolutely awesome. We had this bright idea in our early years of marriage that we would just have all of our babies really fast. So, we did just that ... 3 boys in 4 years. So I figured that I'd give a little insight into what it's like now having almost 3 teenage boys. 

Cade is 16, Nash is almost 15 and Reid is 12. So, with that said ... our house smells. When you hit about half way up the stairs and enter into their territory you are hit with a cloud of musky boy smell. If you aren't prepared for it, you could throw up in your mouth a little bit. But have I mentioned how fun it is?! They keep me laughing that's for sure. They have the best one liners. I've decided that because I have so many of the craziest stories I'm going to write a blog for each one that stands out. So here goes part one ...

 One summer Joel was at the fire station and I was home with all of the boys. Our middle son, Nash, had some friends over. They were all outside playing in the pool and Nash decided to push in his little brother, Reid. Reid was fully clothed of course. So, Reid takes all of his dripping clothes off and just leaves them outside. The night goes on and all is forgotten. 

A couple nights later, we get onto Cade for leaving an empty box of cosmic brownies in the pantry We instruct him that when it's empty we put it in the trash. He proceeds to stand up for himself and tell us that when he came downstairs he heard "noises" from our room and split out of there quick. Ok, ok, I'll let that slide. We do tell our kids that if they come downstairs after 10pm they better have their noise canceling air pods on. LOL!

So the next evening, we are eating dinner and are all sitting at the table. We are talking about what's been going on and Joel asks Nash about pushing Reid into the pool. He asks if he was showing off in front of his friends. Nash says yes and Joel tells him "don't be a dick son, nobody likes a dick." Without skipping a beat, Cade (the oldest) chimes in and says, "EXCEPT MOM!"

Holy. Crap. I almost fell out of my chair. 

Welcome to my life of all boys. It's a wild ride. Get ready for part 2 ... 

Much love, 

Here's a cute picture of Cade, our oldest, the night he was inducted into the National Honor Society.
