Hi there Katie I have 3 boys the youngest born 27.7,04. Ages range from 9yrs, 31/2yrs and 51/2 mths. My youngest has decided that he needed to keep up with his older brothers and had been caterpillar crawling from 4 mths. He has since decide that crawling on all 4's is much faster! When we told people of the impending 3rd child, everyone just assumed that we went back for a girl. The thought of having a daughter was always something I had wanted to experience, however we just wanted the joy of another child. I found out what the sex was before the delivery becuase I have friends who had 2 boys and went back for a girl and ended up totally disappointed when they delivered another boy. I didn't want my first thought of my baby to be negative, so if I was going to be a little disappointed I wanted to deal with that before our little bundle arrived. When I was told I was having a boy I grinned from ear to ear, I didn't care, I just knew I was happy to have a baby. I did get a little sad that night but not because this baby wasn't a girl. I was sad because I know I wont have a daughter as this is our last child. Luckily I got over my sadness pretty quickly. I have neices, and cousins and friends who have girls, so when I have the urge to go pink, I just buy for them. I also bought a female dog and gave her a pink collar! My boys have inherited my dolls and my husband gets to do the macho "boy stuff". I wouldn't trade any of them for a girl ever!!!
ps I still insist the toilet seat be put down after use even if I am the only female in the house
