I like being a girl

I never thought of myself as a girly girl. And I have to admit, I love the fact that I have two boys. If I was going to have two of the same sex, I am so glad it was boys. However, now that I am living in a house with my husband and 2 boys-and a dog that's male, I am getting in touch with my more feminine side . For one, the toilets! I don't need to say more. Also, I don't find flatulence or going no. 2 to be the funniest thing on earth, I don't think with my stomach, I love the color pink, and things that smell nice. I don't think laundry puts itself away, I think multi tasking is not only possible, it is imperative. I cry in movies, I prefer cuddling to wrestling and tickling. I am perfectly happy to be left alone-I can find things without assistance, I like to eat cereal for dinner and use paper plates. I can use the same cup all day long. Shopping used to be something I enjoyed. I think a trip to the grocery store alone is paradise. I am thinking most boys/men can not understand these things. Honestly, I can't see my boys growing up to be all that different from their dad. I don't really plan on breaking the mold. The good news is-they won't be my husbands!

  1. You crack me up! You've always been a girly-girl, you just hide it behind that sports loving mask :)

    I don't think your boys will be as much like their dad as they will be a hybrid of the two of you... you can already see the compassion in Jackson and the stubborn in Tyler that are pure Teri!

    Oh, they'll take the traditional "gender role" lessons from Paul and on the surface his influence will be impossible to miss, but both of them have your heart and your determination, so much so that I hardly see Paul in either of them most of the time... they are lucky little boys to have parents who not only love them, but also have such different things to teach them.
