My Life with Boys

I always wanted two boys.  Just two.  No more, no less, and certainly NO girls!  I wanted a motherhood without tutus and tiaras and without all the drama.  I have yet to meet a girl that doesn't thrive off of drama. I have to admit that I feel like I won the parenting lottery since I got exactly what I wanted and in perfect timing too.  I may not have been prepared when I got pregnant with Dexter but looking back now I am pretty happy to have had my two perfect boys before I turned 30.

Whenever I am asked how many kids I have and I reply "2, both boys" I usually get people saying "oh, I had two boys and a girl and goodness my boys were a piece of cake" or something along those lines.  I also get "oh, you're nuts not to want a girl, they're so delightful"  I will confess that I think it would be nice to have a built-in friend once my daughter gets older but I also think that if I play my cards right and raise my boys to be wonderful men, they will bring home some exceptional daughters for me to love!

I looooove being the mom of two little boys. I *thought* I wanted a girl at one point but now I'm grateful I have what I have. Boys are fun!
