Dude Mom Life Is …
It's hard to describe to moms without sons what raising a son is truly like.
It's different they all agree, because boys are just, um, different.
Plus, the whole never having been one is sort of a thing! I will never understand their I-have-to-touch-it-constantly-so-it-doesn't-fall-off-penis-obsession, and I don't think farts are THAT funny, or know why peeing outside is so fascinating, and mostly I hate roughhousing; I usually wind up hurt.
I asked some of my Dude Mom friends to share what life with sons is truly like; welcome to the madness …
Dude Mom life is … “Loud burps & giggles at the dinner table, big hugs, busy sports schedules, priceless snuggles, multiple trips to the grocery store each week, compliments & lots of ‘I love you' surprises.” — Monika Melsha, Night Light Journeys
Dude Mom life is … “refereeing fights and then receiving snuggles. Being proud that they take physical risks, but scared to watch. Being the queen of the house, but still having to scrub the ‘boy toilet' – which is the stuff nightmares are made of. Farts and burps, constant noise, never-ending energy. And a huge sense of responsibility to help shape them into good men.” — Rita, Fighting Off Frumpy
Dude Mom life is … “busy, fun, unpredictable, high energy, rough & tumble, lots of talk about silly bodily functions, giving explanations as to why mommy has a small penis, and yes with four boys pee everywhere but in the freakin' toilet. All the while having a fifth boy whose name is Daddy. He who laughs just as hard about all the silly ridiculous things they all talk about.” — Nicole Lawes, Modern Style Mama
Dude Mom life is … “knowing the names of all the construction trucks, trying not to laugh at fart jokes and failing miserably, holding your breath every time you hear ‘Mommy, watch this!', not knowing where the dirt ends and the bruises begin, and going to bed with a few more gray hairs than you woke up with.” –Melissa, A Wide Line
Dude Mom life is … “loud, fun, and often smelly.” — Mindi, Simply Stavish
Dude Mom life is … “not for the weak.” — Becca, My Crazy Good Life
Dude Mom life is … “disgusting!! The smells, the noises, all of it. Pure disgusting. And I wouldn't have it any other way.” — Monica
Dude Mom life is … “full of shenanigans!” — Nacia, Ready to Pop Dance Fitness
Dude Mom life is … “is nothing like I expected it to be!” — Rachel, It's a Hero
Dude Mom life is … “what I was meant for. It all feels so natural.” — Alexandra, Good Day Regular People
