Being a boy mom

As I got Gianna ready for bath time the other day I couldn't help but laugh at my little nakey baby. The minute her diaper goes off her whole mood changes. She becomes this crazy little person, running around like crazy laughing at her naked self. It is hysterical. As I watched her streak around my living room a picture popped into my head of my little man doing the same thing. And all I could think about was "Oh my God, it won't be long before I have a little penis running around the house"! (Yes I said it. Penis) I have to start practicing saying it!

A picture of my little man running around naked led to the next thought in my head
Yup, I went there. Why I immediately thought of Jason Segal in a scene from Forgetting Sarah Marshall I have no idea. I of course texted the husband about my revelation and he couldn't help but laugh.

In all seriousness though sometimes I still freak myself out about having a boy. I can easily envision signing up Gianna for ballet, dressing her in tutu's and going to dance recital after recital. But what am I going to do with a boy. I'm not into sports and am such a girly girl. Can I bring up a strong, manly little boy

But part of me is excited for the challenge. Maybe having a little boy will finally get me interested in sports. I can easily picture my son and I playing lego's on the floor, running around with pirate swords and building tents in the living room and I can't wait for that.

Plus I hear little boy's are totally mama's boys. I'm warned by my friends who have girls that by the time they hit 3 the attitude sets in and they don't want cuddles or kisses from their mama. Boys on the other hand I hear want their Mama's always. It will be nice to have a mama's boy around the house since Gianna is a total daddy's girl

28 days left until my little man arrives!


  1. I felt the exact same way. Having been raised with only sisters (seriously, my dad had 1 male ally in the house: a gay cat), I was terrified when I found out I was having a little boy! But, I soon realized that boys are so much fun! And it's totally true: Boys love their mamas! (Mine sometimes can't get enough which means I rarely get a break.) It's wonderful to have a little man want to snuggle and cuddle with you, even though he has a ton of toys that could hold his interest for hours. Plus, toy cars are a lot of fun!

  2. You're having your sweet boy on my's a good today to be born;-)

  3. My sister was terrified of having a little boy after having 4 years with her little girl. She loves it!! Yes, boys are mamas boys and it's so sweet.

  4. I am sure you will do great raising yout little boy. Don't always think girls are always daddy's girls...I was a mama's girl. I didn't tell my mom to stop kissing me goodnight till I was like 10.

  5. awe, those are such sweet thoughts, well minus the jason one ;)
