I’m excited I am fast approaching the 3rd trimester with my 3rd child and it honestly can’t come fast enough. I’m not saying that I am not enjoying my girls and my life because I am, but I always knew deep down that I wanted three children and I feel that once this baby is here in our arms, in our home, in our family that we can truly start our life as a family of five. No more pondering if we will have more children, no more trying, no more heartbreak when things go wrong and no more pregnancy.
As a busy mum of two I am trying to buy a few baby bits here and there, nothing big just babygrows, vests, bibs etc. – I have been storing them in a drawer in our study. Last week I went to have a little look to see what I needed more of when I noticed that all the items that I had bought were for baby girls. We didn’t find out what we were having so the gender will be a complete surprise. What am I thinking?
Truthfully? I can’t imagine being a Mum to a little boy, it’s not that I don’t want a boy, I just can’t even imagine what it’s like bringing up a son. When I think of our family all I can see is girls. I have two sisters, my husband has a sister, there is my niece and, of course, my girls. Apart from the arrival of my beautiful nephew a couple of years ago it has always been all about the girls.
Am I in denial? Just because I have two girls doesn’t mean my third will be one. Just because I can’t imagine having a boy doesn’t mean I wont have one. When I actually allow myself to believe it could be a boy I feel a little bit of excitement – it would be so different, so new. Although, another beautiful girl to complete our family would mean 3 sisters, just like my Mum had.
Like the majority of parents I have no preference as long as it’s healthy – that is all I care for. However, I am intrigued….who is going to complete our family? How is our story going on end? All I can say is, roll on December!
Did you have a preference?
