Holy Girl Parts Batman!!!!

so yesterday, my husband and i found out that we're going to be having a girl. i just wanted a healthy baby, but a girl will also do just fine. there's one small problem. WHAT THE HELL DO YOU DO WITH GIRLS????!!!! i have nieces but i never really took care of them as infants. you have to wipe a certain way and you can't be too rough. you mean i can't just throw them on the bed while we're playing? you see, in our family, especially in the next generation there are five boys and only two girls. again, the two girls i have never really taken care of as infants. i have no idea really what to do. i'm not even a girly girl as those who know me can attest to. put up her hair in cute barrettes? how do you do that? make cute little ponytails? what do you mean i have to brush her hair? i don't even brush my own hair. wtf???!!!??? bows? little headbands? huh? am i gonna have to go to the mac counter and get some quick classes so i can at least show my daughter how to but on some kind of makeup when she gets older? OMG. i think the walls are starting to spin. little purses and froo froo dresses? sheesh. well, at least i have girly girls around me who i'm sure will be able to froo froo out my daughter to the nines. and with the two grandmothers who will definitely be FIGHTING (oops i mean COOING) over my daughter, then i'm sure everything will be fine. i just can't wait for my son to have someone to keep him company or should i say a little sister to beat him up and he can't do anything because #1: she's smaller & #2: she's a girl. but in the end, i believe that God doesn't give us anything that we can't handle. so since everything happens for a reason, there's obviously a reason she's going to be coming into our lives. i just want clay aiken to come to the hospital and sing the stevie wonder song like he did in scrubs for my daughter. oh well, here's to welcoming a brand new girl in our lives. however she turns out, i just want for her the same thing i want for my son. i want them to be who they are and be happy.

until next post.

We are perfect for each other. If I EVER have a boy, you'll have to come over and tell me it's gonna be ok. AND I will totally do the same because I know girls best...well, not like THAT Mary...but you know.

So fricking excited!

With either gender I'd make sure they were read to as often as possible & exposed to various kinds of good (but not too loud) music, including classical stuff, because I'd like them to be literate as have trained ears.

I grew up feeling wretched 'cuz I figured my dad hated me because he had wanted a boy. I've always imagined that if I ever had a daughter, I would make sure she knew she was loved unconditionally. Now that I know my dad hated me simply because he didn't want a kid, period, I still feel the same. I'm also painfully aware of the kind of crippling a child can do to herself if she thinks she's not wanted. So even if you don't know what to do with a daughter... just remember to love her. =)
