my daughters

I'll be the first to admit, I really never imagined myself being the Mom to 2 girls.  Dolls and Barbies aren't my thing, and teenage years with girls?! No thank you! I kind of got use to the idea of having all boys and thought that was the perfect fit for me.  Well, we all know you can't control these things and when we were told #2 was a girl, I almost couldn't believe it.  I remember crying in the ultrasound room thinking in my head how I was going to have a friend for life, even though part of me wanted another boy. It took time to set in, but I was going to be a girl Mom.

Fast forward to pregnant with #3 - I was convinced it was a boy! I was very happy to have a boy already, and my girl, but again, those thoughts of wanting all boys kept creeping back.  The hubby and I were certain this was our second boy, and when were told GIRL we really couldn't believe it. Obviously a healthy baby is all we ever wanted, but gender disappointment is a real thing people.

As time went on, I started getting SO excited to have another girl.  I knew I was giving Ella a sister and I honestly loved that.  They would be friends for life, be there for eachother at good times or bad, or to talk about how crazy their Mom & Dad are :)

Having girls has changed me.  I thought I was protective over my Brayden, but jeez, throw some girls in there and I am now the biggest Mama Bear there was.  I think about how my girls are going to need me, they will need my guidance, my approval, my friendship, but most of all, my love.  I want to give my girls the best Mother/daughter relationship I can.  I hope they know they can always come to me (or their Dad) with any issue, good or bad and that we will always be there for them.  I pray my girls grow up strong and make good decisions and that we can live through those teenage years.

So as someone who wanted all boys, and now has 2 girls and 1 boy, I can honestly say I am so happy I didn't get what I wanted.

Bring on the dollhouses and barbies, this Mama's ready :)
