Mama Bear Says...

Dear Ya'll-Know-Who-You-Are,

I'm pregnant and hormonal.  What's your excuse?!

If you make one more comment that suggests a boy is the only positive outcome of this pregnancy, I might claw your eyes out.

You are welcome to a gender guess, and even to your own preference. So long as I don't hear you imply that either outcome would be less than desirable.

Maybe you are just being nice and making what you feel is a harmless comment because you think we want a boy. Or you want us to have a boy.

But it makes me feel like you think a girl is less of a prize.  A miracle.  A blessing. A beautiful gift from God that will be just perfect, because He makes everything and everyone that way.

I want this baby no matter what. It is what it is. A son would be awesome.  A sister for Kherington would be so fun!

And when you act like only a boy is worth celebrating, it makes me want to keep my adorable, precious girl(s) from you forever and ever. You don't deserve their giggly, pig-tailed company.  Because clearly they aren't as special as a boy, right?

Clearly we didn't hit the jackpot if we don't have one of each, right?

Bite me.

I'm pregnant and I can be rude.  What's your excuse?

Love, Mama Bear

I predict it will be a happy, healthy sibling to Miss Kherington and her menagerie of animals!

LOL, I love this!!! Im pregnant with my second boy and everyone thought hoped and prayed for a girl for us. BUT surprise boy and oh well bc after a miscarriage and lots of fertility pills I could care less! The world does think that a boy and girl in a family is the perfect world, ha.
Even my mother in law was "so sad" for me, well dont be, bc we didnt get pregnant to have a girl but to have a healthy baby and give our son a sibling :)
LOVE this blog

You're better than I am! I got SO sick of, a LONG time ago, hearing, "Wow! You sure have your hands full!" I can "get" that people are either making conversation and/or trying to be "nice". Problem is, I don't take it as a compliment. I find it more of an insult. They're either thinking that my kids must be heathens and/or I'm not capable of taking care of them. What mother doesn't have her hands full?!? Because of this all too frequent annoying comment, I now respond with, "My kids are a blessing, but you're getting on my nerves." That's why I said, you're nicer than me:)
