My post about creating a Christmas Eve Box for the kids has gone crazy on Pinterest and it seems mums everywhere are trying to get themselves organised and pulling their hair out in the process!
Last week I wrote a post about gender disappointment and how I had been really sad for awhile while pregnant when I found out that you were not the little girl that I had dreamt about having after my own mum had died when I was only 21 years old.
I certainly could not have imagined just how perfect for me you would be and I’m sorry for that moment of sadness because I had no idea just how blessed I would be by your presence in my life.
Somehow, some way, someone knew just the perfect gift to give me and it turned out to be you.
‘Your boys are going to grow up and leave you and you’ll end up all alone.’
These were the first words that greeted me one morning at work as a regular client of mine decided to start sharing his ‘honest’ opinions about my position as an all boy mama.
This client was an outspoken regular so I tried not to take it to heart, but as a mum of two boys and no daughters, this kind of comment was becoming a regular occurrence.
‘Oh you poor thing, when are you going to try for a girl?’
‘You must be so sad to only have boys’
‘I would be so disappointed if I had only had boys’
The thing is, most mums of all boys have probably heard all of this before.
I’m going to share the love with you again this week with yet another Christmas tradition. I promise this is the last one I have up my sleeve and I’ve got in early with all my Christmas posts to:
A. Avoid the mad rush and give people a chance to be prepared; and
B. To get in before it gets lost in a sea of Christmas posts!
