Speaking as a mom of THREE girls..There is a really bad stereotype placed on girls, that they are over the top drama queens. This is just not so. My oldest daughter, is the girliest little girl you will ever meet. She turned 4 yrs old yesterday & is all about dresses, bows, princesses, dolls..you name it! My second daughter is a total tom boy. Her 2nd birthday was last month & she wanted a Disney Cars birthday, so thats what we did. She loves playing in the dirt with dump trucks, getting dirty, playing in mud puddles, rough housing...all that typically known boy stuff. My youngest daughter is only 4 months old, so Im not sure yet which road she will take, but Im anxious to find out.
Its horrible that people are being so rude to you when its your first child. I didnt get the rude comments until I got pregnant with my third daughter. I got a few comments here & there after DD #2, but I would just cry after the comments. When we found out DD #3 was a girl...I posted the news to facebook...and EVERYONE had been telling us the baby would be a boy. I posted to facebook "Its A Girl!! She is healthy & we are happy because that is ultimately all we can ask for" Ofcourse, I didnt get the excited comments like I most likely would have gotten had I have posted "ITS A BOY!!!!!" Most people said things like: "Wow, I really thought it would be a boy..congrats tho", "Poor daddy! Lots of pink!", "I feel sorry for you guys", "Better start saving for the weddings now"...i just wanted to SCREAM. The hardest comment Ive dealt with was at Easter, my husband's cousin was talking about how she wanted another baby (she already has one girl) but basically she wanted a boy next not another girl, & someone pointed to my husband & I and said "Just dont drink the water theyre drinking & youll be fine" I cried. We ended up having to leave I was so upset. People that have mixed genders think that noone can be happy with just one gender. Dont get me wrong. I would LOVE a little boy. We plan to have ONE more child, & i realllllllllllllllllly hope God sends us a baby boy. But if not, I will just love a 4th daughter as much as I love my 3 girls now. I cried after finding out DD #3 was a girl, I cried for weeks. I felt like a failure for not having a boy inside of me. I felt like everyone was looking at me as a failure. I didnt understand why most people seem to have mixed genders out of 3 & here i am with 3 girls back to back to back. Then on December 2, 2011 at 9:59 am....My whole outlook changed. I fell in love with my third daughter. She is 4 months old now & I didnt even realize I wanted another girl until I had her. I wouldnt trade her for 10 baby boys now. So, if the baby is a girl, its okay to be sad if thats what you feel. And truthfully..a lot of people wont understand your feelings. They will tell you to just be happy. But sometimes life isnt that black & white. But I promise you whether you get a daughter or a son, you will fall in love the second you see them. Being a mother is the grandest thing in the world. Nothing compares.
