The MOB Society

I cannot take any credit for this post, except for the fact I had the good sense to sign-up for "The Mothers of Boys (MOB) Society" emails!  Got this one in my inbox this morning and it immediately made me smile!!  I love my boy!!  I am so glad we get to experience raising girls and this wonderfully, magnificent, total BOY!!  On April 18th we are going on a date, just the two of us, to his favorite restaurant... Chick-fil-A!!  They are hosting a Mommy/Son Date Knight!  Can't wait to hear what comes out of his mouth when it is just the two of us!  Without sisters around, he becomes VERY talkative!! 

So, here is the "Application to be a MOB"...

What applying to be a mom of boys might look like.

Must have strong stomach.

Gag reflex not recommended.

Must be willing to work weekends, nights, and holidays.

Medical experience a plus.

Must be practiced in the art of boo-boo kissing.

Must have at least a base knowledge in video game lingo.

Moderate to advanced Super Hero understanding recommended.

Aversion to blood not ideal. This job can involve trauma situations.

Must be willing to deal with mass quantities of feces removal.

Must be able to leap tall building blocks in a single bound.

Stain removal expertise helpful.

Sense of humor imperative.

Minor degree in zoology a plus, prerequisites in animal handling even better.

Referee experience beneficial.

Tolerance to the smell of urine necessary.

Perseverance in toilet scrubbing required.

Sword fighting experience a plus.

Must not hold too dearly to breakable items.

An intricate knowledge of Lego handling useful.

Rough-housing will be sometimes required of applicant.

And most importantly, patience and grace will be required of you every day for the rest of your life.

What would you add to the list?

So really?  What would you add to the list?!  I think I would add, "Can tolerate large amounts of sweaty-ness."  "Doesn't mind stinky feet."  Or "The smell of hot, dusty, boy heads."  Moms of boys... you know that smell!!

The one and ONLY!!
 Please visit The MOB Society for encouragement and laughs during this season of raising our boys, sons, dudes, little men, guys, soon to be boyfriends, husbands and fathers!!
Love you! 
Smile today! 
Jesus died for YOU and BEAT the grave!!
