Raising kids is not for the faint of heart. Raising adventurous kids is definitely not a task to take lightly. This post is written from the perspective of a mom of boys. Some of these things can be transferred to cover raising girls, but some are specifically boy. You'll see what I mean.
When we first got pregnant, and even before we had kids, I always knew I wanted two kids. A boy and a girl. Ideally, in that order. I always liked the idea of a sweet but protective older brother for my little girl. I started dancing and crying super happy tears when the ultrasound tech told us we were going to have a son.
By the time we got to the anatomy scan with Kylar, I was so anxious. I knew I'd be happy with a daughter, but I really hoped the baby would be a boy. I loved having a son. Having two just seemed like the best thing that could happen to me. Having a girl seemed a lot more stressful and overwhelming. I wrote about those feelings more over here, so I won't repeat myself too much. Basically, I love having boys and I'm learning so much! I'd like to take some time to impart some of my knowledge and experience on to you.
Tips for surviving boys birth through 3 years
Being a mom is the best thing I've ever done. Being a boy mom is exciting and exhausting, fueled by coffee and some days barely survived. But you will survive and you will love it. Yes, some days you'll question your sanity and worry about how badly you're screwing them up, but that's just motherhood, isn't it? Don't worry, momma, you'll be just fine.
