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!

Please consider training baby #4 to do your pedicures and save the money. Pedicurist positions may be the only jobs left in America by the time baby #4 needs a job! By then the baby boomers will all be too old to bend over and cut their toenails themselves. There should be great geriatric opps by then!

Luv, Mum

What an optimistic outlook!
