I Wanted A Girl!

I've been trying to get ready for this yard sale I plan on having this Saturday. One of the things I wanted to do was clean out baby, kids clothes out of storage. Why is this SO hard?? I figured I'd keep essentials, just a few things, in case we ever do have another but instead I'm throwing stained up stuff in there and keeping everything else which is still a ton of clothes. I'm making no progress at all. They boys junk is done but I'm working on the girls. I've made it through 12 months so far and Alex now wears 6X so you can guess I have a LONG way to go.

After the sifting through all the girlie dresses, cute shoes, and hats, I'm back in that I want another girl mode but I know as soon as I would get pregnant with my luck it'd be a boy! If I even got pregnant now with a girl Alex's sister would be 6 1/2 yrs younger than her. Oh well. Anyways Damien was such a good sport and let me try on some of her old clothes on him and remember how cute she looked in them 5 years ago. I know other people out there have probably done this too and I'm not a nut job! These will be saved as blackmail though when he gets older.

I'm Not a Girl! Momma Wanted A Little Girl

I wanted a GIRL TOO! Oh man I feel so awful writing that! I love my little man soooo much but I grew up with sisters ... and I'm a girly girl who loves pink and I'm always stuck hanging out with the boys. Perhaps I will buy a cute little outfit and secretly dress Adam in it when Shawn's at work! LOL

I am with you! I saved none of my boy clothes (which really hit me hard when i had another baby boy last year) but loads of baby girl stuff.

In fact we have decided the we aren't going to ahve any more babies, but the fact that rachel won't have a sister does bother me. I love my boys with all my heart but if I knew I would have a girl I would do it all again.

You are so funny! I am NOT getting pregnant again (knock on wood) and can't wait to get rid of stuff as Alanna outgrows it. Yardsale here we come! Wooohoo!

P.S. I took a picture of my 2 year-ld in a purple dress at Disney last year, isn't it funny to do that?

Angi said...

LOL! I love those pictures!! How adorable would he be as a girl... good thing he still is such a handsome little guy!

P.S. I wish I could come to your yard sale!! I miss them SO much.

Angi- Actually I thought he made a pretty bad looking girl! LOL He was hanging out all over the place with his pudgy tummy and arms, he's not built like a girl that's for sure!

Colleen- love the (knock on wood) usually when you think that, that's when it's going to happen!

Lisa- if we could pick the sexes before getting pregnant I think we'd both be set!

Sheri- I'm sure your next will be a girl! I can see Adam being a protective big brother as he gets older.

Damien is going to kill you when he gets older! LOL!
