You would think that being the only woman in the house was easy, but it’s not. Sometimes it doesn’t seem fair, but I get over it and move on. (Don’t get me wrong, I do love my boys). I have found several ways to deal with being the only woman in the house.
#1. My Kids Think I Have Superpowers
I’m not kidding, my kids sometimes really do think I have superpowers. Some days they think that having me cook their favorite meal is a superpower.
#2. I Have My Hobbies
Just because I’m a mom of all boys, it doesn’t mean I can’t do my own thing. There are some things that I enjoy doing around my house that the boys don’t like. It’s just one way I deal with being the only woman in the house.
#3. Take a Long Bath
If I ever need to just clear my head and remind myself of my mission, I head to the bathroom to take a long bath. The boys are old enough to let me have my peace of mind for a little bit, while I relax and collect my thoughts.
#4. Girls’ Nights are More Fun
Since every night at my house is pretty much guy’s night, it’s so fun to hang with my friends. Although I don’t get to do it very often, I do enjoy getting away every now and again.
#5. My Girlie Shows
No one rolls their eyes more than the guys in my life than when I turn on one of my girlie shows. There are enough sporting, wrestling, and cartoons on the television, every now and again it’s nice to turn on the television and watch something I love. (Most of the time it’s not even that girlie).
#6. Enjoy the Food Part
I have to admit that’s it nice to live in a house full of boys because I get to have an excuse to eat. My boys love their food and it gives me an excuse to buy lots of it. Of course, sometimes I get an itch to bake and they help me eat. It’s like a win-win for every person in the family.
#7. Buy Household Items
One way to deal with being the only woman in the house is to start enjoying the process of buying household items. It’s no joke that something in my house is bound to get broken, so I get to enjoy buying something new. Sometimes it can be a pain, but for the most part it’s fun.
#8. Become a Super Saver
Boys are expensive and it’s no lie! I deal with being a mom to all boys by trying to save money in any way I can. Boys clothes are expensive and so is food, so saving money wherever I can is a great way to deal with being the only woman.
#9. Get Your Own Bathroom
I know that sometimes it’s impossible to get your own bathroom, but if you can DO IT. Boys are o-so- gross! It’s important that a woman is able to sit on the toilet without stepping or sitting in pee. I can deal with being the only woman in the house for now if I have my own bathroom.
#10. Just Deal with It
There’s nothing you can do if you’re the only woman in the house, so just deal with it. It can’t be THAT bad because it’s NOT that bad.
