[BOY MOMS] Stephanie from Wife Mommy Me

Monday, April 14, 2014



Hey ya’ll! I’m Stephanie. I blog over at Wife Mommy Me where I share about life in the south, raising our little guy, and making memories with my family of 3. I love the idea of BOY MOMS sharing their stories, as sometimes we get overlooked next to the girls with their frills and bows.
For the last 17 months, I’ve been knee deep in all things boy and I wouldn’t want it any other way! I've always wanted to be a boy mom. Well, once I opened up to the idea of being a Mom at all. I've always felt comfortable with the idea of parenting a boy. Something about raising a girl seems intimidating to me. Maybe it's because I'm not that girly. Also, 8 out of 10 times, I don't even like other females. All my life I've been "one of the boys". I can handle rough and rowdy opposed to dainty and soft. Raising a girl would have been something that pushed my knowledge and comfort zone to the max.

While pregnant with Connor and before our 20 week ultrasound, I knew he was a boy. I know all Moms-to-be think they know what they are having before they really know but in our case, I did. I could just feel it. I was MADE to be a boy Mom. God knew what He was doing when He blessed us with our boy. 


As the days go by, I've thought a lot about how life would be different if Connor would have been an Emma or Zoe. Connor is all boy and I am very much a boy Mom. And I very much love being a Mom to a boy.
Why I Love about being a Boy Mom

1. I am the only girl in our household, leaving me to be spoiled, spoiled, spoiled.
(Even our dog and cat are boys)

2. When we need to have "the talk" with Connor, Daddy will get that privilege. 
Boy parts, boy smarts. Good luck James! 

3. It’s fun to play in mulch, pretend to be dinosaurs and growl. One day, I'll get to cheer Connor onto victory while he plays ball. Boy activities are just fun! No tea parties or dress up in my future.

 
4. Connor will always know how to treat a lady because as his mother, I will make sure he is taught the correct way to care and love someone.

5. Mother-Son dates. I die.

6. I will always be the first girl/woman Connor ever loved. Sure he will find the girl of his dreams one day and yadda yadda but even then, he loved me first. 

  
7. Boys require much less maintenance. As do I. 

8. How else would I have learned so much about dinosaurs, trucks, trains and bugs? 

9. Boys can pee anywhere. (I'm a bit jealous of this trait really).

10. There is no sweeter, stronger and more powerful bond than the one that a mother and her son. I know the bond between any parent and their child is strong, however, there is nothing like the love of a Momma for his little guy.  


Being a boy Mom is what I was meant to be.
I love my little man, dump trucks and dirt included.

  2. So sweet! My lil' dude made me a mama and every day with him has been a joy! Now that our lil' lady bean is here, it's so interesting to see the difference between little boys and girls. Being a mom to both is so much fun!

  3. These are great insights, Stephanie. I have to say I hope some day I'm a girl-mom, but being the only girl in the house does have its perks!
