What Life With Two Boys Is Like
Sometimes people are surprised that we are done having kids. The idea that we might try for a girl is a common one. Brian and I, on the other hand, are quite happy with having two boys. I come from a family of all girls, so I’m happy to let the universe balance itself out a little.
Our lives are filled with stereotypically ”boyish” things like cars, bugs, monsters, computer games, The Hobbit, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Star Wars, and wrestling matches.
Our lives are filled with stereotypically “girly” things like baby dolls, tea parties, housekeeping, cooking, sleepovers, musicals, gardening, dancing, The Princess Bride, and My Fair Lady.
Our lives are filled with story time, cartoons, science experiments, board games, coloring, and running.
Our lives are filled with whispered secrets, hugs and kisses, cuddles and laughter.
Our lives are filled. Our lives are full.
