Alas though I like a lot of these people, it’s still Joss Whedon. Who can fuck right off.

And then the weird part is that a lot of people say that about girls too. So its almost like babies in general will cause you to have “your hands full.” Read more

When I was interviewing daycares, while giving me a tour, one of the daycare owners referred to a kid in a class as “my little boyfriend.” That was the moment I did not choose to send my child to that daycare.

YES. And I guarantee that every #boymom who says “well, my son has lots of energy/likes playing with toy trucks/makes fart jokes” because he’s a boy also uses that justification to excuse behavior that ranges from totally normal for a child that age (meltdowns and tantrums happen), to totally abnormal but justifiable, Read more

I also get cringey when I see a fellow #boymom (gross) taking her 5 year old son out for dinner and is like “Date night with Aiden!” Um, it’s not a date night. It’s you and your son out to dinner. WTF.

that would bother me. I just love the fact that my kiddo loves her teacher. That’s what I am focused on.

Just my childless teacher 2 cents, so take with a grain of salt. If you (as a woman) define your life as a #boymom, it makes my life as said boy's teacher a bit difficult.  These boys, as middle schoolers, are very emotional that their teacher doesn't adore them with the intensity of their mom.  I genuinely like most Read more

So I worked in a preschool and something the 2 year old classroom used to deal with was moms referring to favorite teachers as their 2 year old son’s “girlfriend”. Like “oh there’s your girlfriend” jokes about crushes etc. My theory was that this was how they made their insecurity at having their baby’s love for Read more

A phrase that drives me crazy is referring to a baby as “my little man.” It’s not a man. It’s a fucking baby. And maybe, if you do a good job parenting, he won’t turn out to be the kind of men we all deal with every day.

I’m a mom of a six month old boy, but I’m not a #boymom. Not only do I not have time to read mommy blogs or get into mom culture, but it seems very limiting for mothers to build their outward identity around motherhood. I mean, yeah, I spend like 80% of my time when not working or sleeping with my baby, but at least I Read more

My Mom had all girls and “boy moms” used to annoy her so much. They all seemed to assume that being loud, messy, and roughhousing was something only boys did. She would frequently point out that my sisters and I did all of those things (especially the story where my middle sister and I were fighting and fell onto the Read more

I’m the mom of two young boys and I actively dislike the whole #boymom culture. My boys are not defined by their gender and I am not defined by their gender either. Yes, there are a lot of fart jokes and muddy feet, but there is also long hair and painted fingernails. Trucks riding in doll strollers. Plush dinosaurs Read more
