Raising a Boy? 11 Products to Have in Your House At All Times (No Matter What)

Attention all Boy Moms! There are a few things we need to know about our darling little XY cuties: As adorable as they are, they can wreak havoc on us, on our homes, and their clothes — all before lunch. But, hey, if you’re raising a boy like I am, you already know that. My son is only 18-months-old, but already I’ve found more marker scribbles on the walls, floor, and sofa than I ever did with my daughter. Somehow his clothes manage to get dirtier, too, and he is always on the go! Having a boy really is different than having a girl. And I haven’t even begun to scratch the surface with potty training a boy or the fact that he’ll soon be swinging his ding dong all over the bathroom like a fire hose.

So, what are we moms supposed to do? I was on Facebook the other day when a friend posted a PSA for all boy-moms next to a picture of Clorox Urine Remover, and it occurred to me that there really are a lot of products out there that you can’t (or shouldn’t) go without if you’re raising a boy. So I did a little digging and found some great must-have items — stuff all us boy-moms need. And, believe me, there are some seriously wow-worthy essentials on this list.
