11 Memes That Perfectly Sum Up Raising A Boy


Growing up with a younger brother was probably one of the greatest experiences ever. As the older sister by five-and-a-half years, I always tried to protect him and teach him everything I knew. Since he was the only brother in the family, some of his experiences were different than those of my sister and I. So, when I see memes about raising a boy, I immediately relate them to my experiences growing up with one.

Don't get me wrong. My mom treated us all the same, and didn't give my baby brother special treatment just because he was the only boy in house of women. That being said, there were times when he'd drive all of us a little crazy. From leaving the toilet seat up to letting out bodily noises (loudly I might add), he definitely pushed the limits at times. But I wouldn't trade him for a little sister. And even though I'm not his mom, having played a part in him becoming the man he is today is an experieince beyond measure.

Whether you're a mom to a boy or if you just have a male sibling, you'll probably be able to relate to these 11 memes.
