[BOY MOMS] Paige from New Momma Notes

Monday, February 24, 2014

Hello!  I'm Paige and my blog is New Momma Notes.  I'm so happy that Elizabeth is hosting this feature for all of us boy moms!!!  I hope you'll come read about my adventures with my little man, Carter!

This is how it all started... Whenever I imagined my life, I always pictured myself as a mom to girls.  I'm pretty girly.  I wore pink to prom, my childhood bedroom was Laura Ashley pink floral, and in college I worked at Babygap and had a few adorable girl outfits stashed away.  I was meant to be a girl mom.
So when I found out I was pregnant in September 2011 I dreamed of a little girl.  The heart rate was in the girl category.  Even though my doctor said not to believe any of those tests, I of course did them all and most came out as a girl.
As I laid in the ultra sound room in December, the technician pointed and said "look right there for the gender" and tears came to my eyes immediately. 
I told my best friend about how I cried, but no one else.  I felt terrible about being so upset.  The next day I went to Carter's and picked out 2 cute boy outfits.  It took me a few days to come to terms with being a boy mom. 
The only reason I can tell this story now is because I've come full circle.  I LOVE having a son.  I think boys are the best and I actually can't imagine having a girl!
We live for construction sites and bulldozers.  We play with trucks, trains, tractors, and cars.

 I think boy clothes are adorable and it's nice how easy it is to get him dressed.  We don't have to worry about bows and headbands.  Instead he's preppy or hipster and so cute!

Since he spends so much time with me, he does like wearing my jewelry and loves playing with my makeup brushes (much to my husband's dismay.)  But I think it's good for him to be exposed to boy and girl things.

So soon-to-be mommas, I promise you that no matter the gender of your baby, you will never look back and will never know how much you can love someone until you meet your little one. He or she will be perfect for you.

  1. Thanks so much for hosting, Elizabeth!!

  2. I love having a boy, too....and I love that we can dress them as mini hipsters ;) He's so cute!

  3. Great topic!! When I found out I was having a boy, I was like.. WHAT?!?! I don't know how to do boy stuff! Now, he's 19 months old.. almost 20.. and I LOVE the Mother-Son bond.. in fact now I worry that if I ever have another and it's a girl will it be the same love? I know it will, but yea.. this is awesome! I find baby boys irresistible now.

    1. It's so crazy, huh? Before I found out he was a he, I thought I wanted a girl. I am a girl, I know how to raise a girl. Then I found out he was a he and I couldn't imagine ever having a girl! I'm with you, I LOVE the mother-son bond!
