I am the lone girl in a house of boys. Between my husband and my two sons, there is a lot of testosterone floating through the air. (I have to constantly remind them that I don't do chest bumps, so please stop trying to engage me in one.) Luckily, I get a breather every now and then when hubs takes the little guys out for father-son bonding activities. Wanna know a secret? I'm not sad at all when they're gone.
It's not that I don't miss them; it's that I love the special time my sons get to spend with their father. It's like they slip into their own little man world and share a particular part of life that a mom just doesn't understand. And since the boys and I have mother-son bonding activities of our own, I have no room to be jealous. More than anything, it fills me with gratitude to see the people I love the most strengthen their relationship and spend quality time together.
Over the years, I have been pretty lucky to watch my guys do fun things together, so I've put together this list of 13 father-son bonding activities to help other papas and their sons make the most of their guy time.
