There has GOT to be other moms like me out there who are surrounded by testosterone! Here I am with a husband, 3 sons and even two MALE cats! How can I relate to all these males around me? How can I maintain my femininity in a house of men?
My three sons are Owen (age 5), Sammy (age 3 1/2) and William (9 months). When we were talking about a third child, of course I had my heart set on a girl. I went through the whole pregnancy believeing completely that my long-awaited daughter was finally on her way. But then, as fate would have it, the most perfect, beautiful little boy appeared and I was completely in love (and only slightly disappointed). Of course both older brothers and my husband were THRILLED!
I've had so many tell me that boys are easier and that I will be the "queen of the house." But who will go get pedicures with me? Who will ENJOY shopping with me? Who will I share clothes with during the teenage years (yeah, RIGHT!)
I'm going to work on my husband to start working on Baby #4 soon and you can all stay tuned to see how that turns out. Keep your fingers crossed for me!
