Words and Phrases Moms of Boys Utter on a Regular Basis

5 years ago

When I was pregnant, I never found out if I was having a boy or a girl. My husband and I didn’t see the point. It’s a child. Why would we do anything different to prepare for a boy or a girl? Plus, I really didn’t want a bunch of pink cutesy gifts if I knew I was having a girl. Luckily, I ended up with two boys, so I avoided the pink thing.

While the preparation for a baby is pretty much the same for boys and girls, things change as they grow into real, interactive human beings.

Boys have a ridiculous amount of energy,  a seemingly innate need to wrestle all the time and consume endless amounts of food. At least in my experience. They also seem to understand how to actually transform a Transformer, something I cannot nor have the desire to do.

I’m guessing moms of boys utter the same type of words and phrases I do on a regular basis. Read 15 words and phrases that are fairly typical in my household.
