Being the mom of 2 little girls apparently makes me a target. The target of people everywhere who have 1 question that they simply MUST ask me. "So, are you going to try again for a boy?"
I used to be amused by this question. I would take that opportunity to recreate the scene in my doctor's office when she questioned my request to have my tubes tied. And I quote, "I never EVER want to be pregnant again." And to quote my hubby, "I never EVER want her to be pregnant again." See, we agree on some things!
And then I went from amused to annoyed. It seemed in the year after Little A's birth, this question was rampant. Everywhere I turned, inquiring minds wanted to know. Friends, family, complete strangers at the mall. I couldn't get away from it!
Now that Little A is fast approaching her 3rd birthday (pardon me while I cry a bit), it seems that this question has again reared it's ugly head. We were out & about last weekend and a complete stranger walked up to me and commented on how beautiful my girls were. And then it came. "So, are you thinking about having another one? Maybe a boy this time?"
I guess I need to have a t-shirt made that says "Proud Mom of 2 GIRLS...End of Story". Maybe THEN people will get it. Yeah, probably not.
