Girls run in my family, so I naturally thought when it was time for me to have children that I would have daughters. Well, as the Y chromosome will tell you, I'm lucky enough to be the mom of two boys. And spending special time with them is one of my favorite things. My little guys and I are always thinking up new mother-son bonding activities for our time together.
Having boys may have been a surprise, but it is one of the best things that could have happened to me. Being around my sons has let me experience things I probably wouldn't have, if I had daughters. (And I don't just mean deferring penis questions to my husband.) My baby boys are the most fun to hang out with, because they are always up for something new. It doesn't take much convincing to get them out of the house and into an adventure. It's been a wild ride so far, and I don't see it slowing down any time soon.
Being a boy mom is a hilarious, messy, and rewarding part of my life — I really can't imagine things any other way. I love it when I find an activity or experience that brings me closer with one (or both) of my boys. If you're a mom of boys like me, and looking for new things to do with your son, try something new with these 17 mother-son bonding activities.
