You know you're the mother of a boy when you reach in your purse to find some chapstick and a plastic sword stabs your hand.
You look in your purse to find the culprit of the pain and notice the sword, but that's not all. A helmet to an action figure is also shoved under a dirty tissue and crumpled up paper.
And that my friends is how you know you are the mother of a boy.
Next week, how you know it's time to clean out your purse.
