One thing that annoys me

Ok, I guess I should say One of the MANY things that annoy me.

Is the people who think that I am/should be disappointed that this baby is another girl.

I've heard a number of comments such as

  • "I'm sorry its just another girl"
  • "Are you going to try for a boy?"
  • "Bet you are upset its not a boy"
  • "People would buy you gifts if it was a boy"
Yes people, its another girl. But she is just as loved and wanted as her sisters are and were. Am I disappointed, well I can't say that I didn't want a boy, but really, the idea of 3 girls, 3 sisters, when I had none, well it kinda warms my heart. And I know girls.

So No, I'm not disappointed. No we won't try for a boy, this is it folks, the baby factory is closed after this one.

And as far as the gifts go -- I can't think of anything I could possibly need that I can't get myself when I want too. If friends and family want to get something for our girl, I'll be grateful and appreciative as I was each time in the past and will be in the future. If not, no hurt feelings.

People can be pretty rude about the whole boy/ girl thing. We do have a boy, but people still feel bad that we are having another girl. Our son has it made with all of his sisters. All but one of them is younger, he has plenty of playmates, no one wants to play with his toys, he doesn't get hand me downs and he doesn't have to share a room. We love having the exact number of boys/ girls that we do.
And for the girls- it is so fun to dress them in matching outfits. They are so cute!!
Congratulations on your girl!

I have gotten only a little bit of that, but since this is only #2 coming along, I don't think people are as "worried" about us not having a boy. :)

That bugs me too. I remember people saying similar comments to me when we found out our second baby was another girl.

But we couldn't be happier. We have two beautiful, healthy, sweet little girls - and I celebrate that fact each and every day. :)

we have three girls. love every minute of it. when i was pregnant with Sarah i got those same comments and it really bothered me that people thought that we would love her less because she was not a boy but another girl. like that was a bad thing
