Ooo, how exciting?! And a great idea for us girly girl mums with boys!
Yes! I know when I had my first boys I was clueless. I’m only slightly less clueless now but have a few tips I can share. I love raising boys!
Hi there! I am also a mom of 4 boys (twins 8, 3, 9months). I am looking forward to reading your posts. I’m doing write31days too! Excited for this challenge.
So glad you found us! The challenge is exciting!

Hi Kara, I’ve got two boys, 4 & 2, and am so looking forward to some inspiration. I am kind of an introverted homebody, so the noise level and the need for active play drive me bananas..
I can definitely understand that! Their noise and energy can be exhausting.
Julie S. says
What a great series! I’m a new boy mom so I’ll be following along.
Great! Let me know if there are any specific topics you would like me to cover.

ALWAYS looking for tips. When dealing with twin toddlers, you learn not to ever turn away from free advice. Looking forward to learning from someone with twice the experience I have…lol
Haha…It’s amazing how much you learn from on-the-job experiences. But I definitely don’t have all the answers, like how to raise twin boys!
Great topic! I’ll be 40 weeks with our little boy tomorrow, so I’m glad I found your blog! I signed up for emails 🙂
So glad you found us! Congratulations on the upcoming arrival of your little guy. 🙂
