His 'n' Her Bad Mother

Something else that we learned from the test results:


Blogger Janet said...

I was just in Reader and saw you pop up. Can I really be first?

When we our second turned out to be a girl, with our first being a boy,everyone kept referring to my "Millionaire Family." The money never materialized, but life was still brimming with richness.

When I was pregnant with my first, and we found out it was a boy, I cried and cried, because I wanted a girl. Boys are stinky! They make armpit farts! Their clothes aren't as cute! (I know. I was pathetic.)

I am mom to a boy and a girl now. And while I love my kids both with equal insane passion and depth? There's something about a boy and his mom. I promise you'll see what I mean.


PS. Boys really ARE stinky. There's just something inherently stinky that happens when they get to be about 2 years old. Sorry 'bout that.

How fun! We have a girl, then a boy too. Be prepared for a little boy in dresses and carrying a purse. My son idolizes his sister, well, when they're not beating on each other.

Oooohhhhhh boy! How exciting! (Not that a girl would be less exciting, but, well, you know.) Congrats!

OOOOOH, THEIR Bad Mother. Awesome.

Boys are great, especially after a girl. I had a co-worker tell me once that a man learns to be a gentle, nurturing father when the daughter comes first, and his son who comes next is all the better for it. I've found that to be true here. And there's just something about a boy and his mother, too.

Congratulations, my friend.

Just chiming in to say congrats on the good news all around. And to agree with all the mums of boys who've commented on the special relationship they have with their sons. It is wonderful.

Of course, the testosterone battles tween dad and son can get tiring but we put up with the bad for the good, yeah?

Awesome news, my friend! You'll find there's a whole new meaning to "mamma's boy". And it's ALL GOOD.

Good times.

Congratulations. There's something about baby boys that seems so rare and miraculous. It's probably because I've never had one.

Boys are insane and crazy, but I think you've already had some insane and crazy with WB!
I was terrified when I found out I was having a boy (last time, this time I'm having a girl) but I love my boy to death.

What a way to make tears pop into my eyes! Congrats! As the mama to two girls, I then had a boy and, if you think girls are amazing (which they are!), boys are even more so! My son is lucky I haven't eaten him up already.

Catherine - I'm so happy for you. A healthy baby, a boy, and safely in the new house. That's fabulous.

We moved the same week as you, in pouring rain, but I couldn't complain, since we had no snowbanks to dig through. Our second boy is due in spring too. :)

somewhere, deep inside your womb, there is a little penis. for some reason, that notion was the freakiest one for me -- there's a little willy in me! ooh!

When I was pregnant w/DS (youngest) a friend who at the time had one boy, now two, informed me very strongly that "boys are YUMMY!" - and she is SO right!

Congratulations - and don't worry about Wonderbaby rolling over him; he'll get his back someday (right about when he reaches at least to her shoulder :-) ) - speaking from experience. :-)

Oh, and I too was wondering what the blog name will have to evolve to?? :-)
