(I figured since john was 6,000 miles away, I'd let him share the news)
Where you right? I wasn’t lol
Nope….I had a feeling (REALLY hoping) for a girl this time. With Graham, I was never sick, queasy nothing. This time around…I was never really sick just queasy here and there and not 100%. With Graham I wanted sweats, cherry coke and a cheeseburger all the time…this time not so much…Fruit, water, buffalo chicken.
As much as I thought I would be having a girl, a part of me knew before I went in for the sonogram that it was going to be a boy. IDK if it was just dumb luck or it was meant for me to find out in the very beginning but as soon as the tech started the sono….there it was balls and wiener plan as day, with in the first 3 seconds. I suddenly felt gender disappointment and wanted her to stop the sono say thanks and have a nice day. But since I was face timing with Daddy…figured I’d stick it out and let him see his baby from 6k miles away.
When I found out Graham was a boy I cried and canceled out gender reveal party. Childish….Maybe but I wasn’t handling it well. John already had a son from before and I wanted a girl so if we decide on baby #2 it could be whatever. John gave me until the end of the day to pout then said I had to get over it.
I realized that at this point there isn’t a damn thing I could do but accept that I am going to be in a house full of boys. A BOY MOM!!!! Dirty, stinky, messy boys. Lord help me. I actually thought to myself, how in the world does Mandy, from House of Rose do it? 3 boys under 7!!!! Bless her heart.
So I decided to make some gender reveal cupcakes and take them to work. Figured it was the least I could do since I shortchanged it the last time because I was pouting.
Am I thrilled to be having another boy? Honestly, no not really, but what can I do about it…nothing
Am I grateful and relieved he’s healthy? Without a doubt. That’s almost a stupid question.
I have no doubt that Graham is going to be an awesome big brother. He loves his bubba so much I know that he will love his younger brother too. I’m hoping that having a brother closer in age, they will become best buds. There is 11yr difference between Graham and his older brother, so I think it’s safe to say that they will never be close or at least until they are much older.
As for me, I’m working on accepting a future of trucks, wheelers, broken bones, guns, hunting, snakes, and sporting events (which won’t be too bad) instead of dolls, dresses, bows, dances and makeup. I have to tell myself, that I think God knows that I don’t have the patience for the drama that girls can bring to the table.
Now the hard part is trying to come up with a second boy name. We have a few names on our list but nothing we are falling in love with. So if you have any suggestions for boy names that are not super popular, and no nick names…like you can name him William and call him Bill…No I would name him Bill if I wanted to call him that.
Sorry pet peeve. But seriously, if you have any boy names, I’d love to hear them
And if you have any tips on being a BOY MOM, I’m listening!
