#BoyMOM Box Swap

Calling all boy moms! This post is for you!

 Are your days filled with dirt, trucks, super heroes and all things little boy? 
Then this #BoyMomBoxSwap was made with you in mind!

I still remember it like it was yesterday. Seth and I went to the OB for my 12 week ultrasound when the ultrasound tech said "do you guys want to know what you're having?"
I'm sorry, what??
I thought we couldn't find out until the 16 week appointment so I was beyond excited to know. I looked at Seth and before I think he even knew what was going on, I said "YES!" And she said...
"You're having a BOY! Congratulations!"
And BOOM! Just like that, I found out that I was going to be a BOY MOM!

 To be honest, I always envisioned that I would be a girl mom. I'm a girl. I know girl things. It just made sense. But life is funny like that and throws you a curve ball and takes you in a direction that you never thought you would be in. Regardless of the fact that I never imagined that I would be a boy mom, I would not change one little thing. I love my days as Mason's Mama. From trains to planes to reading books about diggers and dirt, my days (and nights) are filled with all things boy.

One thing I never considered as a boy mom was how few mommy and me activities are tailored to moms raising little boys. Girl moms get the luxury of mani/pedi dates, shoe shopping together, sharing each others clothes, visiting the ballet and so much more. Even Dad's get Father/Daughter dances.
But what is there for the boy moms?

Let me tell you.

As many of you are familiar with, I hosted a #BOYMOMS series last year. This series is what prompted Stephanie and I to think about a #BoyMom Box Swap. Nothing against you girl moms (we love you too!) but as you know, our little men hold a special place in our hearts. This Box Swap gives you and your little fella(s) a chance to enjoy a box filled with goodies for each of you to enjoy and share! Whether you are spending the day racin' cars, going on insect hunts or making slime, this box will give you plenty to do with you son(s).

Here are the details on our first annual #BoyMOMBoxSwap.

The value of your box should be $20 BEFORE SHIPPING. Think of things you love doing with your son(s), your favorite snacks and activities and share that fun with your fellow #boyMOM during our box swap.

    This is the cutest swap idea!! You're gonna have so much fun with it!

  3. This looks like a blast! Glad the timing will work out with our move!

  4. Wow, I thought we were early at 15 weeks! Thanks for hosting this - we've signed up and we're excited!! Well, one of us is - the other is currently ignoring me and playing on his phone because he's having a sick day, but he'll get there :)

  5. Also, testing, testing 123. I fixed my no reply thing again.

  6. I LOVE THIS! This sounds like so much fun!

  7. This is so fun!! I told Stephanie I was in - but wanted to tell you, too.
    Thanks so much for teaming up with Stephanie to put this together. I already have a list of fun things to add to the swap box!

  8. We had to wait til 20 weeks to find out he was a boy... That's crazy you found out so early! Noah and I are definitely in... Sounds like fun!

  9. LOVE this idea! I may have accidentally signed up twice though. I hit enter before I was done with the form, then went back and filled it out all the way and submitted again. Sorry for any confusion!

  10. That's really cute. I always wonder whether I'll be a boy mom or a girl mom...

  11. How fun! You know I love a good gift exchange! But I am in full on prepare for baby mode right now and am going to pass on this one. :'(

  12. Omg!!!! Are you serious?!?! That is the absolute cutest thing ever!!! So jealous I can't sign up! ...Maybe in a few months, I'll have that opportunity. haha! Seriously so much fun!

  13. such a cute swap haha! bugs! slime! I think Aria has started to really live up to her girl status....her 27 month day dress I grabbed out for her approval...PRINCESS DRESS!!! And immediately started striping. And her princess playdoh...mom make punzel hair. And now bugs make her grab my leg, which is probably my fault because bugs make me freak out. I tried so hard to not in front of her, but it wasn't successful. However...dirt, might just be her fave thing ever.

  14. Oh I missed this! I read it on my phone in the middle of the night while nursing- then forgot to sign up! Thanks for inviting me- would love to participate another time!

  15. Totally missed getting on board. :( Wah wah, even with your heads up. Seriously I don't even know what day it is sometimes. Haha!! Looks like fun, can't wait to see everyone's boxes and get in on it next time. ;) xo
