Because I'm a Proud Mom of Boys

Three little boys. No girls.

All blue and no pink.

And my family is complete and we are completely happy about that.

Though I do believe there is a special kind of crazy club that goes along with being a Mom of Boys.  So, when I saw the First Annual Boy Mom Blog Hop, I had to join in. If you are boy mama, too- hop over and check it out- it's going on thru August 3rd. 

I'm Shell and this is Things I Can't Say: all those things that I want to say, but refrain from spilling to some mama I just met on the playground. It all has to come out somewhere and that is what this blog is for. My place to spill it all.

My boys are Monkey(6 and entering first grade), Bear(5 and entering a K-5 program), and Cub(3 and entering preschool). That's right, for six hours each week starting this fall, I will have something that is totally foreign to me as a mom of boys: QUIET.

And I might even be able to get some of these messes that my boys love to make cleaned up... maybe.

I love to meet other MOB's, so welcome!!!

I got one of each darlin, so I am all about this.

What's this quiet you speak of?

I love your post for the bloghop!!

I wasn't sure what I was going to to for it, I am terrible at introduction posts... but you inspired me to just do it. :)

The think I love about being a mother to a boy is that my husband is around for the rough and tumble!

I have two girls & my best friend has two boys (my godsons) so I've got a good mix, even though I want a boy of my own someday =)

Oh my, an empty house! What's that like?!?!

Now you're making me want to find or start up a hop for moms w/all girls haha.

Of course, I already follow you, but it's always nice to give a big shout out to fellow Boy Mom's. We definitely have our work cut out for us!

As a mom of two boys, I so cannot even fathom quiet in my house either! Totally relate to you and I'm a little envious of your few hours of quiet each week!

My one boy creates enough noise/ activity/ chaos to keep me on my toes. I'm trying to imagine it multiplied by 3 - I BOW TO ALL of you MOBs!

You know all that quiet time is for blogging right? hehe

Boys are amazing. I'm hoping one day to join your special mom of boys club. Not right now, mind you, but one day.

Oh my gosh...you just got me thinking babies AGAIN!!! This place is not safe. Not safe at all. ;-)

WHOA - quiet?! I don't even know what that is anymore! Boys are so fun, despite their noise and messes... or maybe even because of! :D

Special kind of crazy indeed! Sounds pretty familiar since we have 7, 5, and 3 year old little boys.

No quiet though. We're the home educatun kind. :)

I love having boys. ;) When I was pregnant with my third, I always thought it was funny that so many people thought I NEEDED a girl. I would've been just as happy with a third boy. Now that we have our girl, naturally I can't imagine life without her. But boys -- such a fun experience!

My brother and his wife have 5 boys - as I've told you before. It is non-stop chaos over there and they wouldn't trade it for the world.

You don't know how happy I was when I saw boy parts on the ultrasound. I wouldn't know what to do with a girl!

I have 2 boys & as you said, it's a special club to be a mother of boys.

Nice to meet you.

What a cool blog hop! I joined in today =)

I love being a boy mom. Dirt and noise come with the territory but I wouldn't have it any other way!

Congrats to you on having a little bit of "me" time!

I've only got one boy but he makes enough noise for three. Him starting school was the best thing that happend to me in a long time. Compared to him, my girls are quiet and will entertain themselves while he begs all day to be entertained.

I'll go check it out. I'm less than a year away from having all 3 boys teenagers. Hold me, shoot me, or stuff my ears full of something to block all the noise.

I only have one boy right now, but I can only imagine the craziness and JOY of having 3 rambunctious little boys! Great job, mama.

Hello from the Blog Hop-
Enjoy the quiet, I am starting to stay home as of next week, and it will be anything but QUIET in my house.

That quiet... it is an amazing wonderful gift. We love our children in a way that no one will understand, but at the same time -- you treasure every single of silence that you receive. *smiles*
