When I learned that the baby in my wife's belly was a boy, I was too busy worrying that he had Down's Syndrome to express my thoughts about him being a boy.
It's true, I really wanted a little girl. I had 3 sister's, I dote on my nieces like crazy, I never even liked other little boys when I was a little boy. Little girls, to me, are sweet and nice and cuddly. Boys are sweaty and rough and. . . well not cuddly. I wanted a girl bad (look at some of my old posts). So we're having a boy. . .
I'd like to say I thought I'd be ok or upset about learning I was going to have a son, but neither is true. . . I never thought I'd have a boy at all. Not even for a moment. SO, again we're having a boy. . .
The only experience I've had with boys is my nephew Kevin. . . some slightly pleasant, but mostly with my boy experiences, I still really want a girl. I don't do boy things. Boys need men to help shape them, I knew girls growing up, I don't know boys. So yeah, we're having a boy. . .
And already I love him more than words could describe.
Even if he is a boy.
