Becoming a boy mom.

I always pictured myself as a girl mom. I could do girl. But a boy? Boys scared me.

Until I had one.

I loooooooooooove having a little boy. Like, super love times a thousand, love.

Maybe there is just an inherent nervousness about having a second baby that is the opposite gender from your first. I’ll speak for myself, but I was comfortable with girl stuff. Boy stuff seemed foreign. But…

…it’s true.

There’s just somethin’ about little boys.

He makes me more emotional. He softens me in a different way than my daughter has. He strengthens me. (in more ways than one)

He is just exactly the person to complete this family.




The end.

Hi! Hello! I am Shawna, the founder of Styleberry Blog. This creative corner of the internet has become a learning haven for moms and creatives, offering a warm and encouraging nudge to those who wish to be better and do better, but often don't know where to start. From Decorating to DIY to Diapers and Paleo-ish Dishes, I strive to make the complicated simple and empower women to take action beyond their personal comfort zone. I subscribe to the Shine Theory & so strongly believe that we shine when the women around us shine and mutual support—lifting up instead of tearing down--will always be the culture here. Are you in? I hope so! Beyond the computer, I run Styleberry Creative where I work with clients to create low fuss, high function spaces that are pretty and practical in San Antonio, Texas and beyond. I LOVE making a house a home. My own studs out renovation is now complete and I am now back to working with clients. Please don't hesitate to drop me a line if you'd like to work together!
