Oh *Boy*....

So0o my best friend went to have her gender ultrasound done today.... they're 90% sure it's a GIRL! I told her that it totally figured she would get my girl and I would get her boy...

The simple fact is that I'm just now getting use to the idea of having a boy. I have been terrified. I didn't have any brothers!! Good thing, too, considering my sister always walked around naked....

On top of that this is like raising children of the opposite sex which neither Cory nor I have any experience in.... he only had a brother and I only had a sister!

Is there some kind of weird rule book out there about how to raise brothers and sisters?!

The truth is that my entire life I never actually imagined raising a son!

When I was in third grade I can specifically remember the mother of one of the boys in my class. She always came on field trips and to parties. I can remember sitting and staring at her and thinking "Do you know how HORRIBLE your son is?! I NEVER want to have a son. I HATE boys."

In third grade they were annoying, in sixth grade they called me names, and by eighth grade they were breaking my heart! On top of all of this I've never personally known the mother of a teenage boy who seemed to have any sense whatsoever!!!! Yeah, yeah, I know they're out there.... but I don't know them! Oh my gosh, I need to focus more on what I'm gonna do when I get peed on and less on the teenage years- I cannot handle that yet.

Boys are my sister's thing... she has boys... she knows how that goes.... but ME?! I've been packing up outfits and tiny hairbows in mourning over the loss of the fact I won't be using them any time soon!

Aren't I just a horrible mother?! But hey, at least I'm admitting it. Don't get me wrong. I love the pea. I'm exciting about a lot of things and I'm glad I'm having a son... for my husbands sake. I really wanted this for him....

But oh my gosh, WHAT IF THE NEXT ONE IS A BOY, TOO?!

I have a penis...

....Inside of me!!!!!
The Pea is most definitely a BOY!
On Friday, Hubby was able to come home. I made oreo bon bons with blue food coloring (that dye your mouth blue) and sprinkles. I also put pea's onesies and tiny blue shoes that me and my friend Hannah bought him in a baby bag with pink tissue paper to make him think it was a girl! He was really happy.... Here are some pictures!

And here are some pictures of the Pea!!... Precious little foot!!
I limited pictures so I could add this..... Hubby's reaction to the news!! :)

I'm pregnant, OKAY?!

...that seems to be my excuse for everything these days.

Let me just tell you, I. AM. MEAN. I have always been somewhat of a push-over. I've always let people say or do things that upset me and let it roll off my shoulder. Not anymore! I am one pregnant woman you do NOT want to mess with. I swear I just cannot control it. My waitress yesterday, looking at the display picture on my phone (without being invited might I add) asked me why I would use such a picture, and not a happy one. "She's smiling". She ignored me. "She's actually SMILING, thank you. She has a very big SMILE," I said, almost shouting over her babbling.

And how about that Kroger cashier who stuck her hand in my face? Oh, that wasn't pretty my friends. Please don't explain to me how to use WIC when the way you are doing it is illegal. That ended in a conversation with her manager.

And let's not forget about all the parking lot fights I've been in lately. Don't waste your time to stop and yell at me over anything- regardless of if it was my fault because I am liable to track down your car and key it while you're inside. .....okay, I haven't done that, but I have considered it!

And last but not least there was that horrendous fight with my mother in law that I promised I would blog about.... buuut I just still don't feel like I can talk about it. I don't even like thinking about it.... and out of all the incredibly justifiable times I've had to blow up on her (like when she came to my house 2 weeks after I had a baby- trashing it, starting fights, and claiming I had my child on her birthday on purpose to take focus off of her) I wound up not being able to take another word after she tried to give me parenting advice. She, who beat, abused, and neglected my husband for years walking out of the room in protest of the way we've chosen to raise our child?!.... I don't think so.

I'm sure the rest is yet to come. I bet I get even more rude, angry, and obnoxious.

On a side note, as most of you know, we found out the gender of the baby yesterday! (And by we I mean me, Adleigh, and my friend Hannah!) Cory was unable to go, and I am refusing to tell him until I can SEE the reaction on his face. Hopefully this will be Saturday, but he may force me to tell him before then. After he knows, I'll be sure to let you guys know! Until then.... :)
