Things Moms of ALL Boys Want You To Know

By | November 30th, 2017|Categories: Just for Mom, Motherhood, Parenting|Tags: , |

I’ve been an all-boy mom now for over 14 years and now that my youngest son is going on 6 years old, it is very clear to me and should be pretty clear to those who know me, that 4 kids was and is my limit! Done! Enough is enough. Baby factory is closed. But here’s the thing. Because all of my kids happen to be the same gender, (4 boys!) and that gender is different than MY gender, people just can’t wrap their head around the idea that I am completely content being a forever “boymom” and that I’m not planning on having more kids. I could write a book about some of the inconsiderate , rude,  silly things people have said to me regarding my family. Maybe I WILL get around to writing that book someday when my days are no longer spent sniffing out strange smells in bedrooms and cleaning urine off the bathroom ceiling. (kidding…kind of). But for now, here are some things that us moms of all boys want you to know. […]

My Radio Flyer Adventure Book

By | November 23rd, 2017|Categories: Parenting|Tags: |

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Radio Flyer. The opinions and text are all mine. When my oldest son turned one, my grandma gave him a Radio Flyer wagon. Since that time, that wagon has carried all four of my boys on countless adventures and created some of their best memories. It makes me smile to think about the fun times I had pulling my boys up and down the road or around and around our house while they begged for more! For the past 100 years, Radio Flyer has been committed to to inspiring imagination and adventure. In celebration of Radio Flyer’s 100th anniversary, they collaborated with I See Me to launch My Radio Flyer Adventure, a fully customizable children’s book. My Radio Flyer Adventure I was so excited to create My Radio Flyer Adventure for my youngest son. I was able to customize his book with his name, hair color, skin tone and choose his Radio Flyer product for him to ride in the book.  Of course I chose the red wagon. You can also add a dedication to the beginning of the book. […]

The Ultimate List of Mother and Son Date Ideas

By | November 14th, 2017|Categories: Crafts/Activities, For the Boys, Just for Mom, Parenting|Tags: , , , |

They say “don’t blink”. I don’t know who “they” are, but I’m starting to understand what they are saying. Each day I blink and then my baby starts kindergarten. Or I blink and my oldest is taller than I am. Next time I blink he might be heading out on his first date. And I’ll be stuck at home longing for the days when he was my special date and we went on adventures together. Since we can’t stop time, we can make the most of the time we have. These Mother and Son Date Ideas are the perfect and easy way for moms to build an unbreakable bond with their son.   Mother and Son Date Ideas One thing that I have noticed in raising my 4 boys is that they crave, CRAVE one-on-one attention.  They want to have time with just mom or dad and not the entire family. A Mother and Son date night doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive. We have a large family (by today’s standards) and it can be hard to have time for each of my boys individually but these Mother and Son Date Ideas will get your brainstorming process started. Mom and Son Date Ideas […]
