For right now, having two boys is pretty cool. I don’t have any creepy dolls with their fixed eyes following me around the room. No pink froo-froo crap. No fairy princess BS. Sure, i’d like a girl- but I really think all of the things I listed would have to go on the “con” list for me. Just not into it!
Having boys means we can be rough and play with cars and robots (not that girls can’t, mind you, but generally boys don’t play with froo-froo dolls), and they can burp whenever they want without having to be scolded that it’s not “ladylike”
I’m also pretty pleased with the fact that if I decide that Parker will be my last child, that when they’re 18 i’ll still be relatively “young.” I can leave the turds at home and go traveling the world with Thomas. The farthest out of the country i’ve been is Canada, and I want MORE!
However, with all that said, there are things about boys that I definitely don’t look forward to when they get older.
The massive amounts of food they will consume (assuming Parker ever gets to regular eating habits), the smelly armpits… and especially bodily changes.
After years of dealing with baby/toddler penis, i’m still not used to it. It’s still weird to me to have to hold Holden’s pecker when he pees, or the strange hard-ons they get for no reason. With age that will only get worse and I know it.
I am terrified of the day I walk in on one of them masturbating into a sock- and we all know it’s bound to happen at least once in their lifetime. What do do? How to act? What to say?? I’m positive i’ll be more embarrassed than either of them- it’s something I have nightmares about. Can I just keep them as little kids forever as to not ever have to experience that? To avoid the awkward sex talk and hoards of skanky girlfriends they’ll bring home?
Some kids know multiple languages, or are doing complex math problems, but I just said "hello" to my 8 year old and he responded with "is it me you're looking for?" so who's the real winner here?
@AtypicalMiriam I am frightening *and* tall 😂
@AtypicalMiriam He fears me. I am the only female I this house. All penis people live in fear.
Me: Just ripped the ass out of my pants. I mean, they were OLD pants, but I feel like it's because I was bigger than I was 10 years ago. 10yo: Everyone's bigger than they were 10 years ago! I am! Me: YOU WERE AN INFANT 10 YEARS AGO 10yo: ... 10yo: *slowly backs out of room*
Person on tv: Age is just a number! 10yo: Yeah, a number that pulls you closer to death.
