Joining the M.O.B

I am married (to a guy).

I have three brothers.

My husband has two brothers.

My brothers each have a son.

I have three boys.

I am swimming in a world of testosterone.  And, to be honest, I think God sits up in heaven and chuckles at me.

You see, I am a girly girl.  I have always liked dresses, shoes, manicures and pink and purple are my favorite colors. 

I loathe getting my hands dirty.  I don’t understand the hilarity of flatulence.  I cannot relate to the desire to wrestle on the floor until somone yells “uncle”.

Yet, God has surrounded me by boys.  And, now they are adolescent boys.  Whole.different.ballgame. people!

So, I have agreed to write about my expertise experiences in raising three rowdy boys for the new site- the M.O.B Society.  There are over 20 contributing writers to the site and I can’t wait to see what they all have to say about the day in and day out challenges of raising the male variety of offspring.  The site officially launches June 1st and I for one can’t wait.  I will be writing a series about S.E.X and also a column about raising older boys. 

So, if you are a mama of boys, you will want to check out this incredible site. You will also be able to learn more about M.O.B  during a special Twitter party, May 31 from 9:30-10:30pm.  Use the hashtag #mobsociety to join in the fun.

 Kudos to my friends, Brooke and Erin, for working so hard to bring this new site to fruition.

I am unwrapping the gift of parenting boys today at Chatting at the Sky.

  1. Ha! Two older brothers, three sons, 8 nephews. I kid you not. But I am a wrestle on the floor, play in the mud type of gal. And so is my only daughter!

  2. I'm so excited for the MOB society!! What a wonderful team of women!! So glad you're part of it!! =)

  3. I think God chuckles at me too sometimes…I had NO brothers but have two boys of my own now. Complete with gross humor and the ability to reproduce just about any noise they hear over and over and over and over… I know you understand. There are often calls to my husband asking, “Is that normal or do I need to be worried?” I'm looking forward to the MOB society starting up. A Lot!!!

    • that is too funny! I do ask my hubby all the time “is this normal?” Looking
      forward to sharing this journey with you and the other readers!

  4. thanks Rachel! I am excited too!

  5. that is too funny! I do ask my hubby all the time “is this normal?” Looking
