boys aim when they pee on you.
boys aim when they pee on you.
I only have one boy so I can't really compare it to being the mother of a girl but oh do I love my little boy.
He's sweet, HILARIOUS (loves toilet humour already), cuddly, caring, stubborn, a real family boy. He thrives on having family around and spending time with family.
He comes and tickles my back when I'm not feeling well, 'helps' me with household chores lol. He has this adorable cow-lick at the back of his head and for some reason when I look at him from the back it's all I see. His little blonde head with his cow-lick. It's the first thing I see in the morning when he snuggles in and wants me to cuddle his back.
I adore him
As a much older sister, I had 2 younger sisters and one brother. As babies, the girls were beautiful, but hard work! Their cries were loud and constant. My brother was docile.
I always wanted to have a baby girl. When I finally became pregnant, DH and i hoped for a girl (as he already has 2 boys from a previous marriage) I wanted a girl, right or wrong, having a boy just was not an option. Through out my life, all my pets, my horses ect had all been female, except for the odd one or two. I understood girls. I could bond with them, I knew how they felt, they made sense. Boys??!! How could I possibly relate to a boy? When I found out we were having a boy I was shocked and saddened. I didnt know how to be a mum to a boy, how could I even bond with a boy? I didnt understand them nor did I want to. Months into my pregnancy I had been telling myself when our baby is born I will fall in love with him, it will be natural. As my due date approached, I got nervous, and felt as though I could not relate to my baby. After all, who was he? He may have been there all along, but he was a stranger. All of a sudden it felt as though this thing inside me was no more than a living being, but there was no attachment. I felt detached. When he was born, I thought wow, look at him. I was whisked off for surgery after I finally pushed him out, so I never got to dress him for the first time or be able to happily walk out of the labour ward with him. But when I woke after surgery, I couldnt wait to see him, but even then I didnt really bond. I loved this little baby, but I loved him as if he were a new pet put into my care. Bonding didnt happen for weeks later. I guess it was the whole role of becoming a mother, my life changing completely. Not that I minded the change, but I am a bit nervous by nature, and my feelings can be fragile, I was very unsure of my self. Now this precious little boy is the most beautiful thing in my life. I love him so much and I am thankful I didnt have a girl, because then I wouldnt have him, and I wouldnt give him up for anything. I am so grateful to have him in my life. I am so lucky he chose me to be his mum, I only hope I never let him down again.
They can pee anywhere with a low amount of mess. This is actually very handy after being in many parks without toilets with a three-year-old girl, let me tell you! Also very handy when you're toilet training. You can take a little container with you in the car for those, 'I've gotta WEE!' moments on the highway.
That said, have had our moments on the peeing front. He once spent the day pretending to be a cat and I realised in the evening he'd spent the day peeing in the kitty litter
I had a boy first and then a girl.
I have found boys to be more cuddly and affectionate. More kisses from boys too
There is something very special between mums and their boys.....I can't put my finger quite on it - I love spending time with my son.
Boys are less worried about what they want to wear etc - it's easier with boys - unually they wear shorts & t-shirt - with girls, well, the options are endless and so are the dramas with clothes.
If I could pick what I had next it would be another little boy
DS1 is emotional, creative, super intelligent, intense, articulate, stubborn, interesting, witty, affectionate, careful, self aware, proud.
DS2 is LOUD, boistrous, tough, clumsy, hilarious, daggy, funny, cheeky, demanding, clingy, gorgeous.
boys, they are real sweet hearts and i am glad i have a boy. there is really something about them as with the girls but boys, well they make my heart melt
Well DS is only 5 months old so nothing really obvious just yet (and he is not an easier baby than his sisters so that is a myth as far as I'm concerned!) but I love that I won't have three little girls lined up to get their hair done in the morning (such a waste of time, searching for matching hair clips etc.) and am looking forward to the urgent 'need to do a wee and no toilets around whilst just grasping toilet training' thing because it will be easier.
That's all I've got at the moment. 5 months in and I'm not seeing any obvious differences.
I am blessed with two beautiful boys and LOVE them for being boys. Boys will make you laugh, make you want to pull your hair out with their stubborness, wonder at their ability to climb, give you the best cuddles, amaze you with their problem solving skills, surprise you with their gentleness, make you smile with pride as they try something new and can rough and tumble all day long.
I love how my boys get so excited about a hotted up car, are so easily fascinated by tools and seem to instinctly know how to use them and could help outside for hours at end in the garden or shed.
Boy themes when it comes to decorating a room seem endless and much more exciting (pirates, zoo, jungle, space, cars, farmyard etc) while the girl themes seem alot more restrictive.
I haven't got any girls so I can't compare. I adore my boys so very much, they are always busy and when they aren't causing mischief they are asking for food! They kick around the footy together, love the outdoors and just bounce all day long.
My boys are so very good at giving cuddles. Their smiles light my life!
