Welcome to lucky mothers of boys.

This site is dedicated to supporting our sons and everything that is positive, fantastic, fun and frantic about being a mother of boys.

Boys should be allowed to be boys…absolutely!

But, I really would like to change some perceptions about mothers of boys. I am not run ragged (all the time!). Boys do love cuddles, can sit still at the table, can be polite, can have close relationships with their mothers long into adulthood. And being a mother in law can be wonderful, gaining a special daughter in law and developing a new close relationship.

Don’t dwell on the often discussed negative stories, there are just as many positive ones if not more, and I hope this site will prove it.

So please help…! Please use this site, post your positive stories, ‘like’ it, spread the word and let’s prove that it is indeed very lucky to be a mother of boys!

Thanks and enjoy!

    To all you lucky mums who, like me, have been truly blessed with boys! There are times when the noise and the sight of bits of lego lying on the floor bring me close to the edge, but our house is full of fun and I wouldn’t change my young men for the world. I am so proud to be the mother of 4 boys!

    What a fantastic website celebrating the absolute joy of being blessed with a son! Boys can be little tearaways but are so loving in every way. I am so fortunate to have my own wee adorable terror and also have six wonderful nephews. Nothing beats the sound of hearing them all lark about and their laughter is truly infectious!

    Greetings! I love reading your HuffPo articles and you seem like a good person to come to for advice, so I wanted to run something by you. My 17 year old son has been dating a lovely young lady for the past few months. Her birthday was last week and he completely forgot about it. When she told him about it, he responded with something like “Oops, I’m sorry I forgot. Let’s do something next weekend since I have plans with the guys this weekend.” I know, cringeworthy to say the least! After a heated exchange, she exclaimed “you just don’t get it!” and landed a stinging slap on his cheek and stormed off. Needless to say, he has much to learn about the opposite sex ;-) I think this could be a teachable moment for him, and I also think he can repair his relationship with his girlfriend if he goes about it the right way. Just wondered if you had any nuggets of wisdom to offer :)

    Best Regards,

      Thank you for your post. This is an interesting one but something I have yet to go through as my sons are a bit younger. Lets see if some mothers of older sons will provide their experienced views. Personally I have recently been thinking that I would like to teach my boys to do something nice for their future loved ones every day. It doesn’t have to be much – even a compliment on an outfit, a lovely text message or an unexpected hug and ‘I love you’ or a small gift – just something to make that person feel special. I think that would firstly, make my boys feel good and secondly, encourage equivalent reciprocation from their partner. After all I want my sons to be really loved, treated well and feel special too!

        Thanks so much for getting back to me! He sent her flowers and an apology note, so we’ll see how it goes. After chatting with him, he does have a much better grasp on why she was so upset. I have to say I admire this young lady’s chutzpah….there are have been countless times that I wished I had slapped a guy for being an insensitive clod. lol!

      Thank you so much for your comment. I love your outlook – it is true that other people’s perceptions can be strange to say the least, but we know how good we have it! It is so lovely to hear that you have remained close with your boys :) x
