girls

‘What are you having this time?’ I replied, ‘It’s a girl.’ An excited squeal came out of her mouth. ‘Finally a girl, you must be SO happy.’ I cringed.’: Mom of boys says she would’ve been happy with 3rd son, ‘What’s a little more noise and dirt?!’

“My two boys were there when that woman stopped me. They are always there when someone makes a remark on how my life is somehow saved and better because I ‘finally have a girl.’ They are constantly reminded they aren’t girls.”

‘My closest friends decided to leave me forever. My core group was gone. My heart was broken. New friends? It is terrifying to put yourself out there. Girls can be mean. Women can be vicious.’

“I can prepare and clean my house for 3 hours the 1st few times you come for a visit. But I can only pretend it is usually this clean for so long before you find out the truth. One day you will stop in because you forgot your sweater, and you will see the underwear one of my boys flung on the couch and the dinner dishes piled up from last night.”
