    Love it, my little boy is only 2 but already some of these are very familiar!! His current favourite word is fart…..!!!

  2. love the wonder woman pic! I am feeling you on the gun issue, since he turned 5 we have been given about 10 nerf guns in 3 months! So for Christmas I made sure my daughters and I got nerf guns too, if you can’t beat ’em, join em’! I must admit family nerf battles are loads of fun!

      I think you are on to something there Mackenzie! I don’t think I fathomed how many people would be sharing this post on facebook when I added that picture! Oh well, no turning back now 🙂 !!!

    I only have one boy but agree with quite a lot on the list. I think of him (in the nicest way) like he’s a puppy – needs exercising constantly so he stays out of trouble! #thelist

    • Kerry Gibb says:

      lol, I know exactly what you mean there. We are getting a puppy next week too so I’ll have 5 playful pups to exercise! xx

  4. All very familiar……. I have three boys 7, 4 and 3 especially when it comes to bodily functions and toilet use….. sometimes its better to just give up!!

  5. Yes to all the above! Our toilet seats stay up as that’s the only was I can ensure I’m not going to slide off it when I sit down. I’ve only got 3 but if you count the husband and dog I’m completely and utterly outnumbered.

    • Kerry Gibb says:

      lol, we are getting a dog on Tuesday to add to my 4 boys, husband and 2 male cats. The dog is of course another boy! x

    Gorgeous list! I’ve only got 1 boy, and at 17 months he’s just started climbing up EVERYTHING, and yesterday licked his very first snail! What a milestone!
    Might have to buy myself a Wonder Woman outfit too 🙂

    • Kerry Gibb says:

      Haha, I love the way you say licked his FIRST snail! The sign of things to come! I can highly recommend the wonder women outfit 😉 x

  8. Ha! Got a few of these to look forward to but I particularly love the Wonder Woman outfit…I bet your hubby wishes you would wear it in the bedroom 😉 nice one on all those FB shares by the way!!

    Thanks for linking up to #TheList, great to have you! xxx

    I also like to give a little wink to parents of girls as they ‘spot’ their kids climbing trees and I am just watching from the bench.
    Found you on #TheList

  10. ROFLMAO!!! my wife has me and her son to contend with so she’ll agree to all of this list.

    The after bath maybe his biggest thing at the moment. His thought is “Just put your mouth into the crook of daddies neck and blow hard”. Works every time and he cannot stop laughing.

    Great post, you really captured the life of young guys 🙂

    14 and 15, v funny! Great list x

  12. I have three boys and I can relate to these. Boys are great though. Much more loving than girls, in my opinion

  13. I have all of this to come now i have a little boy. I already have two girls and i have found my son to be so different to my girls he is so much more loving and cuddly and laid back xx #TheList

  14. Louise says:

    Love it I’m a mum of 3 boys and can relate to them all and lots more x

  15. Ha ha! Brilliant, you see this is why I am so glad I have a girl! Don’t think my nerves are up to a boy! Thanks for linking up to #TheList x

  16. Renay Howey says:

    Oh my goodness, this list makes me laugh so hard! I may not have kids at all yet, but I have 8 younger siblings, 3 of which are boys, so I get it! Hilarious! I love your writing style!

    • Kerry Gibb says:

      Wow, you are the eldest of 9!!! Much respect to your mum! I bet you help her loads. Thanks so much, I’m really glad you like my writing 🙂 x

  17. Love it! Especially number 7! My little boy is only 2 but its all headed my way, especially if this next one is a boy (roll on April for finding out!!) I’m already outnumbered 2 to 1 xx

    • Kerry Gibb says:

      Congratulations! I bet you are counting down the days until you meet your little one now! So glad you enjoyed the list, there is lots for you to look forward to! xx

  18. Lyn Bown says:

    This really made me laugh. Having just the one son, I can really see where you’re coming from. Especially with the sticks !

  19. Marion says:

    Loved reading this list! I am expecting my first boy, due in May. I see I have got lots to look forward to! Husband has already decided he and his son will play lots of tricks on Mummy… should I start worrying? 😉

    • Kerry Gibb says:

      Ooh, they are ganging up on your already! Don’t worry forewarned is forearmed 😉 You will have loads of fun to look forward to. Congratulations on your pregnancy, roll on May! xx
