How To Speak Boy

For this week’s edition of Works For Me Wednesday, sponsored by Rocks in My Dryer, I’d like to share some important terminology that should be known by all Mothers of boys.

As a new mother of a boy, and never having been a boy myself, I found myself lacking in this department. Luckily for me, my Dear Hubby has been educating me so I should be able to communicate with our son by the time he can speak.

Here are just a few important terms you should know:


Armored Personnel Carrier

Bomb Bunker

Ghost Turds

Cooties Breakfast Hero

I’m sure I have a lot more to learn, but for now, That’s What Works For Me!

This was a sweet post! I loved it! And I can SOOO relate...I have four boys. They are so much fun, and I too have had to learn to speak their language and get excited about things that I think are, well, gross. Ah, the joy!

Yep, you got it right! My boys are 17, 21 and 25, but I remember those days. Oh, and there's a 23-year-old girl in the mix who has always held her own very well, thank you.

LOL! I love the pictures and you are so right. I am an only child and a girl...boys definitely require a whole different language!
