When I first entertained the thought of becoming a mother, I thought ”I hope to have a set of twins – 1boy and 1girl”. This would get it all done with one pregnancy! … and then we’d go from there. I thought a nice family would be 2 or 4 children. DH and I made a pact that he’d name the boys and I’d name the girls.
AND, I thought, if I don’t get that wish and all my children have to be the same gender, I wanted them to be girls.
So, from my lips to sealed in fate…. I was blessed with three lovely daughters. It all happened so fast. I can’t be certain, because I didn’t have any sons, but I believe that raising girls is a completely different career than raising boys.
Here’s how I remember the blur….
It’s a girl! – “Isn’t she lovely”
It’s a girl! – “How cool is this”
My Little Ponies, Barbies and Dress up and random Barbie appendages
French Braids and Pony Tails – “no bumps please”
Dance class, more dance classes, more dance classes
Hand Clapping Games
Fears and Tears
Fights, Fits, Giggles – Hysteria
Clothes flying out the upstairs window
Sharks and Swimmers
Daisies, Brownies, Junior Girl Scouts and Cookie MOMster
Kittens! x 3
Hamster in the bedroom – nope… hamster in the basement – where is that hamster anyway?
Sharing rooms and (not) cleaning rooms -
Second Phone Line, Nextel Talkies, 10 IM windows open
More grad gowns
It was fun and fast and furious! We are truly blessed and so pleased about how it all has turned out. We have three great daughters that are best friends/sisters and now a lovely, lovely granddaughter too!
I wish you daughters!
