Gender is not What Should Complete a Family



So does this mean you’re going to try again for a boy?

Upon the announcement that my husband and I will be having another baby girl, the inevitable question we get is, “So does this mean you’re going to try again for a boy?!” My husband and I have both agreed we think we are done after this. We are happy being a family of four and our two children being girls.

Then we get the response… “Oh come on, you have to try again for a boy!”

It’s the same for people who have all boys too. They get the question, “So are you going to keep trying till you get your girl?”

To be honest I don’t really get this. It’s okay if you’re a mom to only boys, only girls and also a mom to both genders. All families look different. Gender is not what should complete a family.

Hey, maybe it’s gotten to me a little more with all these pregnancy hormones going on. But, if you go to a gender reveal party or find out someone you know is having another girl or another boy, say “Congratulations!” Let’s avoid making them feel like if they don’t ever have the opposite sex that they aren’t complete enough as a family.

I grew up in Florida and married my high school sweetheart Jeff. We have a daughter named Sadie who is a mix of sweet and sassy. She definitely keeps me on my toes. I am a stay at home mom who is also finishing up college. I can relate to mamas who need to get their homework done while a little one is running around and constantly asking for a new snack. I have a passion for sharing what is put on my heart through writing. I love getting real about things we face in everyday life. Besides writing, my other hobbies include DIY, decorating, being outdoors when it’s not too hot (because Florida!), party planning, singing and spending time with those I am close with. If you came to my house I’d probably not be looking cute, make you a cup of coffee and find enjoyment in just chatting while my toddler runs around scattering toys all over the kitchen.
