I've been asked this a few times, especially right after we found out Kylar was a boy. People assumed that we needed a little girl. Our life seemed incomplete to outsiders because I was going to be outnumbered (more so) rather than having an equal balance.
All of my energy went into not laughing at this question and here's why.
No, I don't want to try for a girl. No, I don't feel overwhelmed or like they'll gang up on me and outnumber me in things. Yes, there are more p's than v's in this house, but that's perfectly fine with me. Honestly, I prefer it.
I always wanted two kids, and I always wanted boys. I'm living the freaking dream over here! I have 3 men who will love and take care of me forever. I will never have to open a door for myself again. I will never have to carry the heavy stuff unless I choose do. I don't have to kill the bugs, mow the grass, take out the trash, or stress about someone else's hormones running wild. I don't have to have any conversations about why her vagina is bleeding and how it's normal and here's how to use a tampon. I don't have to have conversations about when she's going to get boobs and why her best friend has C cups and she only has As. I DON'T HAVE TO DO ANY OF THAT SHIT. I'm winning.
My boys are my world and I am theirs. I will be the one to teach my boys what a woman should be, how a woman should be. I will be their model for a healthy relationship and show they how to treat a woman. I love being a boy mom because I love my boys and all the adventures we will have.
Now, I realize that having a girl would not diminish our abilities to have adventures but I love our life and I wouldn't trade it for anything. I don't feel like I'm lacking anything and I have no interest it "trying again" for a girl. I was never trying for a girl from the beginning.
I will be surrounded by gorgeous men who love me for the rest of my life. How on earth could I possibly improve upon that? 💗
