No Girls Allowed, Except for Mommy

10 month old baby

I am a mom of all boys.  I never thought I would be.  Boys always use to scare me.  When I thought of motherhood I thought of things like girl scouts, Barbies, braiding hair and mother/daughter shopping trips.  I thought of the relationship I had with my mom and how I would someday have that with my daughter.  I saved a few of my little girl dresses and picked up a few new things the last couple of years.   When I was pregnant with boy #1 and boy #2 I didn’t worry too much about it.  I figured that I would have these two boys and then our 3rd would be our little girl.

I got pregnant with #3 and thought for sure this was my girl.  I felt different (maybe that was just age) and everyone else around me was having girls (or so it seemed.)  We went in for the 20-week ultrasound and right away the tech told me it was a boy.  I didn’t quite catch it but I think I just wasn’t expecting him to say that.  I really didn’t know how to react at that point.  I was thrilled to have another boy but at that moment, my girl dreams were gone.  This was going to be our last baby.  This was it.

For a few weeks, I had to mourn the loss of never being the mom of a girl.  Don’t get me wrong, I was so happy to have a healthy little boy and was so curious about which of his brothers he would take after.  But since he was our last I had to come to terms with not having a daughter.

Baby J is now 10 months old and I really feel like I am growing into my role of the mom of three boys.  And I am really digging it.  People still make comments to me about it.  Some are cute, some are annoying but they really don’t bother me anymore.  Sure I might get a tinge of sadness when someone mentions something like a tea party or a girl scout event.  But in the end, this is the family God has chosen for me.  And I am going to trust he knows what he is doing.  And I figure my little girl might just come in the form of a sweet little granddaughter 😉

  1. I cried uncontrollably when I found out my 2nd child was going to be a girl, I was for sure expecting another boy. And now that I have the third child, a little boy, I know God picked these children out just for me! In the order He knew would be best 🙂
