In the past, I have commented on how I was amazed at the questions and comments that would come out of people's mouths. "When are you going to have kids?"...."When are you going to try for another?"..."Why don't you just do ________?"
I can admit, before trying to start a family I probably have asked someone this as well. Not knowing what that person my be going through and not realizing that IT IS NO ONES BUSINESS!
But now I've had a new question thrown my direction on multiple occasions. It has quite a few different spins on it, but all the same principle.
"So, are you going to try for a boy?"
I just can't believe that someone would think that I wouldn't be content with having two girls. That I would need to try to roll the dice to see if I could have a boy. As if things were less than ideal with two girls and as if I weren't over the moon happy with having the living baby that I prayed and wished and dreamed of.
That day when they told me Nora had a sister I cried my eyes out. Not because it was a girl, or because it wasn't a boy...but because my baby was here. My baby was alive and crying in the background and for the first time in three years I was on the other side of the fence. Leaving the opertaing room with tears of joy rather than tears of sadness.
So to those who ask me if I'm going to try for a boy my answer is simple. I've been to hell and back to have this baby girl and my heart is content and filled with happiness.
That and mind your own damn business.
