Okay, so they were the other day, but I wanted to keep you in suspense.
Can I tell you that I have laughed at some of your guesses on what we are having?
Some of my favorites are:
Twins (on my)
Triplets (super oh my)
A hermaphradite (that one was a favorite as Sam and I often joke that the only gender we don't have is a "he-she". Yes we are bad people, I know)
I love the calls, facebook message and texts we got about this. But I think we have tortured you enough.
We are having...
A human. For sure.
A boy one to be exact.
And I can't wait.
Now, there is a downside. I'm going to need to quadruple the home owners insurance because my house is barely standing as it is with two crazy boys and a third could quite possibly bring the whole thing down.
But, think of all the yardwork I can make my boys do. Think of how often I can rearrange my furniture! Think of all the athletic events to go to, the fact that boys love their mama and how I won't have to pay for hair cuts, make up or prom dresses!
When we told the kids it was really fun. Xander has no clue what we are talking about, but he is very excited about this whole big brother business. Buddy was bummed for a second because he wanted a sister. Then we told him another brother can play boy games with him and we'll have another bed in his room and the idea of 3 beds to jump on won him over. Belle was harder to appease. She was so very disappointed. I remember when we told her Xander was a boy. She didn't speak to me that day. She was better about it this time, but she did cry. But we tried to comfort her with the knowledge that she and I will get to go shopping together, just the two of us, we can buy pretty dresses when she is older and she may never have to mow the lawn. Plus she will have 3 brothers who adore her. Pretty wonderful. With the added bonus of being able to help us narrow down a name... she was sold.
On the name thing... argh. Buddy wants Max, Belle wants Justin (like the unicorn on Scrubs) and Xander wants "bean". I don't know where that came from. Sam and I, sigh. I'm going to just bribe him like I did last time and then pick a name. So far that has worked out for us.
So, there you have it. Towerland will be full of stinky, loud, messy boys. Sounds pretty perfect to me.
