Announcing Our... Second Annual Boy Mom Box Swap!

Tuesday, May 17, 2016

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 for you!

I still remember it like it was yesterday. Seth and I went to the OB for my 16 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 20 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 and monster trucks 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 some of you might know, I hosted a #BOYMOMS series a couple years ago. This series is what prompted Stephanie and I to think about our first #BoyMomBoxSwap last year. And this year, we're super excited that Sarah from Seeing All Sides is co-hosting too!

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 second annual #BoyMomBoxSwap.

The value of your box should be $20 BEFORE SHIPPING. Think of things you love doing with your son(s). It can be your favorite snacks or favorite activities (or whatever else you guys love to do together!) and share that fun with your fellow boy mom during our box swap. This exchange is open to US residents only.

Also, please note... you don't solely have to be a boy mom to participate! As long as you have a son, you are a boy mom to us!

If you are interested in participating, sign up now by completing this simple questionnaire! Partners will be assigned and emailed in a week or so. Don't forget to grab our button while you are here to add to your post next month.

Oh, and one more thing to note... you don't have to be a blogger to participate! You can share on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter too, so please, sign up if you are interested!

Please let me, Stephanie, or Sarah know if you have any questions!
