I swear, I will go postal if one more person says something about this being baby boy #5.
You all know we sent out little packages to announce the gender and have gotten a majority of great, sincere responses back from our families, but some have just been down right annoying.
My mom: I talked to Jason and he didn't seem at all disappointed! Huh? Are you serious? Why would he be disappointed with a healthy, happy baby boy?
His dad: so, are you disappointed it's another boy? Huh?? Seriously!? I can't even express why this makes me so very mad but I'm sure you all understand.
DS#1's GF: " do you know the gender yet? Oh, no, its not another boy, is it? Oh, sorry." Huh??? Seriously?????????? It's the reaction, really.
But all in all it's that lackluster, ho-hum, it's just another boy so it's not that exciting reaction that is annoying the living daylights out of me. Or the fact that people seem to think having a DD will make my life somehow more complete. Get over yourselves people! Not to mention it makes me even more venomously protective of my boys.
Ugh, I just don't get it. A baby is a joyous thing no matter the gender. I didn't choose to get pregnant so I could have a boy or girl. I got pregnant to nurture, love and teach another human being in this world.
Ok, I'm done ranting. I'm sure the hormones and exhaustion from painting all day are exacerbating things but oh well, it's out there.
