Sugar and Spice??
Well, we've made the announcement to our family, friends and co-workers. Fortunately we did not receive any snide comments ... which I wouldn't have responded politely to at this point in time anyway. Not surprisingly though, I have received numerous requests for a baby girl. As if I had any say in the matter. Ed keeps telling folks that he wants a girl because he thinks I really want a girl ... and I'm not completely sure where he received this notion. Quite honestly, I've enjoyed all aspects of having sons, even their exhausting physical energy. I know all the Power Ranger "teams"; can put together a Bionicle in 3 minutes flat (well, that's a bit of a winky-dink); absolutely love ALL remote control vehicles; have no fear of bugs, frogs, worms, spiders or lizards; and I can put a stop to a temper tantrum with my "evil" eye. The "rough and tough" play has its limits with me but I admire their tenacity and stamina. I just don't know how I would adjust to a little girl. I've been warned by mothers of little girls about the "attitudes", the sassiness, the prissiness, the pouts, the whines, the nonstop talking. I've had my own limited experience with my 6 year old stepdaughter. And while I do daydream about brushing and braiding long hair, shopping hours upon hours for adorable clothes and having "girls' day out", I just feel so unprepared and inadequate when it occurs to me that having my own little girl is a very real possibility. And I must admit it makes me a bit fearful to know that I could easily be replaced at my husband's side by "Daddy's Little Girl".

Never fear, we, the wives, cannot be replaced by "Daddy's Little Girl". Yes, there is a beautiful bond there, one that makes you fall even MORE in love with your husband; but there is nothing that can replace US in their lives. Regardless, you will be given exactly what is intended, boy or girl. I can't wait to find out with you!

By the way, I LOVE the new design. It's be-yoo-ti-ful! =)
