Having a Son

When I was pregnant with Carter, I remember walking through a craft store with my two girls in tow. We were pointing out every pretty and frilly thing to each other. We were all so excited about everything we saw. I got a knot in my stomach about being pregnant with a boy. What would he do when we went to the craft store? What would I talk about with him? How could I possibly have as much fun with a boy as I did with my girls? Well, I am SO grateful I got my son. And we have plenty to talk about. Suddenly things are "cool" (not pretty) and sports are "awesome". I still love painting my nails and looking at flowers with my daughters, but a whole new world has been opened up to me with a son.

I am so excited for Carter to play tee-ball. Even buying his baseball mitt was fun for me. (And for those of you who know me, know that sports (and certainly sports equipment) are not my thing.) Anyway, tonight was his first practice and I can't wait until a game. Let's just hope he understands the idea of rules.

Go Carter Go!!!

While Carter practiced, we played on the playground. Good times were had by all.

Oh thanks a lot Elena--just when I was comfortable with the fact that all my children are of the same gender--you go throw a post like this at me :)! Although now I really do wonder if I'm missing out on dresses and flowers and the like.....

Miki- Yes just practice. I think games start next week.

Jennifer- Nah, you're okay. You already know the fun of a girl, you are one. You're just way more experience in the enjoyment of boys. :) (sorry, didn't mean to throw salt in a wound.)

That is so sweet! It is wonderful to share "puppy dog tails", etc with little boys. Jaden is playing t-ball too. Maybe we'll see you on the field!

I felt the same way when I found out Carson was going to be a boy, but it is crazy how fun boy things become. I now love to look at boy toys, and love to watch him be so completely different than my girls. I think all little boys get cuter when you have one of your own! Hope you have a fun t-ball season!
