Girls (and the lack thereof)

December 10, 2012

James: Do you know what I want to be Mum? I want to be…

Jasper: <interjecting> FAMOUS!


Jasper: Mama, draw house.

Me: Like this?

Jasper: Yes.

Me: Anything else?

Jasper: Draw girl. In house.

Me: (draws stick girl) Like this?

Jasper: No. More.

Me: (draws one more) Is that good?

Jasper: No. More.

Me: (Fills house with stick girls) Satisfied?

Jasper: Yeeesss.


In case you missed the news, this is not our house – nor will it ever be our house. The ultrasound tech, though not technically allowed to tell me what’s between Baby’s legs, said, “Don’t change the theme at home.” And then she printed out an ultrasound picture with a very obvious penis on it.

This is just fine by me. Girls might sit still at church but they end up dating boys like Jasper.

    Three boys! I have three boys but 6 daughters scattered in between them- boys have extra ompff, physical energy, and thrive on the rough and tumble sort of play-
    ha,ha- God Bless You

        Well that confirms it. We’re renovating our basement into a bouncy castle. And first aid station.

        boys are physical but SO much easier emotionally- trust me! They are NOT high maintenance. They play out any upsets but girls TALK
