#BOYMom Box Swap

Myles and I are quite excited about this post and sharing what we got in our BoyMom Box this year! About a year and a half ago, I shared why I love being a boy mom over on Elizabeth's blog for her Boy Mom Series. Since then she has ended the series, but now co-hosts (with Seeing All Sides and Wife Mommy Me) a yearly exchange for all boy mom bloggers. Myles lives for getting mail, especially when toys are inside, so I couldn't pass up the opportunity! Plus, I love getting to know new moms and their blogs... so win, win!

We were lucky enough to get paired with Meghan and Noah from The Adventure Starts Here! I'm really grateful to have been introduced to her and Noah. She has a great blog with tons of great content, and Noah is so smart, sweet, and cute! We talked a little about Myles' likes/dislikes, but Meghan really hit it out of the park with our box.




We got a great sampling of some of Myles' favorite things! My favorite thing to do with Myles is Play-Doh, so of course I was all over that! It instantly brings me back to my childhood. Meghan was so sweet and found a Froggy book for Myles. I mentioned to her that he really loves them, but I no idea she would actually be able to find one! We have been reading Froggy Bakes a Cake every night since.


I have mentioned several times here on this blog that I struggle with finding good bath toys. Meghan was so thoughtful to include two of Noah's favorites: Crayola Bath Crayons and Crayola Bath SquirtersMeghan also added a little something for momma! She got me a beautiful coral nail polish and some cute note cards. 

And within 5 minutes (no joke), we were in the bath playing:


Am I the only one that finds unused Play-Doh fresh out the can so satisfying!?!? 


Thanks again Chasin' Mason, Seeing All Sides, and Wife Mommy Me for putting this all together and Meghan and Noah for the perfect box!

  1. Meghan did so good with your box!! New bath toys are so fun. :) I love the smell of play-doh. I'm sure that's weird, but there's just something about it.

    1. I have always had such a hard time with bath toys; so happy she added some in because Myles gets bored very easily in there. No I totally agree about the Play-Doh! It's like a comfort that bring you back to your childhood.

    1. Since we had to try them right away, I can tell you that they wash off easily too. I thought I would have to scrub a little, but it mostly comes off with just some water. And now he can make all sorts of scenes in the bath!

    1. Being a boy mom is not for the faint of heart. It is everything I ever wanted it to be, but you have to always be on your toes! Love connecting with other boy moms on here!
