You Know You're a Mum of Boys When...

1. Every time you enter the bathroom the toilet seat is up, or it hasn't been flushed, or there's wee on the floor, or up the walls, the toothpaste is left out on the sink... Or possibly all the above!

2. There's a finger in your eye, nose, ear or mouth...

3. You're buying a new pair of school shoes/trousers AGAIN because you've found yet another hole.

4. You over use the phrase 'Leave your willy alone!!' [and that's not just the kids! ;)]

5. You go through air freshener, to mask the smell of stinky shoes, socks, and general boy smell, like nobody's business.

6. It's not unusual to see a mega blok going round and round in the washing machine.

7. If you've lost it, it's probably in the bin, where you'll also find half a dozen dummies, a shoe and your favourite lipstick you've been looking for all week.

8. When you, the only female in the house, are chief 'spider catcher'.

9. You know the off-side rule.

10. When the school calls you know it's another, 'He's had a bit of an accident at break time...' moment.

11. The house is constantly noisy, that includes the chorus of burping and farting.

12. You're an expert of carrying hot food from one side of the kitchen to the other, whilst dodging a lego tower, kicking a football away from the oven and all with a toddler wrapped round your leg.

13. There's no such thing as a 'clean pair of shoes'.

14. Apparently, FIFA is a way of life.

15. You wonder why you're getting funny looks before realising you're singing the theme tune to Thomas the Tank Engine, far too loud whilst walking down the supermarket aisle.

16. Your pre-teen sits down to dinner 10 minutes after every one else because he 'was online during an extremely important game & couldnt turn it off'... or he'd die.

17. You can't walk down the street without them picking something up off the floor as you go, a stick, a leaf...

18. The kitchen cupboard is full of empty boxes and packets.

19. You've mastered the art of walking in to a room and ducking a flying football/brick/toy car.

20. You have snuggles and 'I love you Mummy's on tap. Boys are so unbelievably loving and you're the luckiest mummy in the whole world to have beautiful boys to look after you!!

  1. Number 1 really blooming well winds me right up and I only have one boy in the house x

  2. This made me laugh and feel glad that I'm a Mum of girls. However, I haven't escaped Thomas the Tank Engine as my eldest loves him. X

  3. Haha I can totally relate to most of these... except the off side rule, I still have no idea about that one ;D

    1. Haha well I'd like to think I understand it, but I'm sure theres something Im missing :)

  4. I just have one little boy at the moment, but wouldn't mind if any and all future children I might have end up being boys. Oh the empty cartons and packets in the cupboard drive me crazy! Two of my husbands brothers came to visit from overseas at one stage and every time I went to grab a treat I'd come up with an empty packet! #MMWBH

  5. Hehe this made me laugh, I have missed lots of this as I am a mum to a little girl. I love number 8! Aww and number 20 is awesome =D

  6. Ha, that's hilarious! I've only got 2 boys in the house and thanks goodness (for them) #1 is not an issue: it's one of my pet hates!

  7. OMG the wee one drives me nuts and its not just the little boys either ;0)

  8. I was nodding all the way through this. My boy is all grown up now, but he was so loving as a little boy

  9. Oh yes, with 13 year old and 3 year old boys I hear you! Mess, noise, but lots of love too :) Kaz x

  10. I've caught myself singing the Thomas tune in the car After my son fell asleep in his seat! The OH thought I had lost it :-D

  11. I love this - I have two girls and a baby boy and he is trouble already, I can see lots of these things happening in the future!

  12. Love these. Especially no. 6. It's amazing what you see going round in the washing machine when you're a mum of boys!

  13. So funny and yet so true! i have a 5 yr old boy too and the mess and noise is constant. Even my little girl got some bad habits from him too... grrr! #binkylinky

  14. Number one would really bug me! One reason why I'm glad I had girls! Thanks for linking up to the #BinkyLinky

  15. Most of this totally just applicable to 'you know you have a husband when'...
