Telling You Y

Go here and read the quick post.

We were driving home from the ultra-sound and Lauren said, "Maybe I just can't produce a girl. Maybe there is something genetic that prevents me from having a girl."

I chuckled and said, "Or, maybe, there is something genetic in me that I can't produce a girl."

She smiled. Then she said, "Oh I can get around that."

Nothin' wrong with a house full of boys!

Let's see . . . your dad's record was 8 and 1. Only six more to go!

Hopefully you know that the men are in charge of the genders. Life is not fair, sometimes.

Congratulations, Bill.

It should be fun trying for the next one? and maybe it will be a girl?

Congrats! We're pregnant with boy #2. My wife is so upset about not getting her girl. It's all "my fault" and I've been told that we have to continue having kids until we get a girl. Seeing how my siblings and I have produced nine boys and no girls, I'm screwed.

I like having three boys, it's fun around here.

Congratulations! Boys rule...but i do have to admit that it will be nice to have at least one child that can make it INTO the toilet when going #1.

Boys, Boys Boys. Oh that's not that Motley Crew song...

Like I told her, you got to share the love. All my buddies can't seem to put the stem on the apple. I think you must be stealing all of the stem juice.

But Congrats! Now you can officially not have to worry about paying for a wedding!

We have two boys and a girl. My daughter is the first girl in my husband's family in 32 years. Saying I felt a little pressure is an understatement. Sometimes you get what your family needs. I think three boys is wonderful. They will always be close and they will always have each other.

Plus girls are high maintenance. You need matching everything. With boys it's jeans and a t-shirt and we're all set.

I'll bet she can, too.

I was thinking exactly what Sharkey said. Just keep on trying, you will get your girl!

Maybe you will be like my family. My dad is the oldest of three boys and then a girl. Then my parents had three boys and then me. Then my husband and I had three boys and then our Princess. It WILL happen!

And three boys ROCKS! I LOVE IT!! Their sister doesn't so much, though...

That's awesome!:)

Congratulations, man!

Congrats Bill. Ditto what Sharkey said.

I am the youngest of four children and the only girl. I'm just sayin'. Oh, and also, I'm saying "CONGRATULATIONS!!" It's good to have more delicious soup cans in the pantry, no matter what flavor they are.

Coming from a family of three boys, I have to say, boys rule!!

Congrats Bill. Yep, it's the men who have the power. It's in the swimmers!

Jody said...

Congratulations! So, how many do you need for a basketball team?

Yay! Welcome to the club!

Why boys need parents.
This has made the rounds before, but it's still funny

This is wonderful!!!

This is for those mothers of boys, sisters of boys, and boys that have grown older and anyone else who needs a laugh.
Why boys need parents...
And you also find out interesting things when you have sons, like...

1.) A king size waterbed holds enough water to fill a 2000 sq. ft. house 4 inches deep.

2.) If you spray hair spray on dust bunnies and run over them with roller blades, they can ignite.

3.) A 3-year old Boy's voice is louder than 200 adults in a crowded restaurant.

4.) If you hook a dog leash over a ceiling fan, the motor is not strong enough to rotate a 42 pound Boy wearing Batman underwear and a Superman cape. It is strong enough, however, if tied to a paint can, to spread paint on all four walls of a 20x20 ft. room.

5.) You should not throw baseballs up when the ceiling fan is on. When using a ceiling fan as a bat, you have to throw the ball up a few times before you get a hit. A ceiling fan can hit a baseball a long way.

6.) The glass in windows (even double-pane) doesn't stop a baseball hit by a ceiling fan.

7.) When you hear the toilet flush and the words 'uh oh', it's already too late.

8.) Brake fluid mixed with Clorox makes smoke, and lots of it.

9.) A six-year old Boy can start a fire with a flint rock even though a 36-year old Man says they can only do it in the movies.

10.) Certain Lego's will pass through the digestive tract of a 4-year old Boy.

11.) Play dough and microwave should not be used in the same sentence.

12.) Super glue is forever.

13.) No matter how much Jell-O you put in a swimming pool you still can't walk on water.

14.) Pool filters do not like Jell-O.

15.) VCR's do not eject 'PB & J' sandwiches even though TV commercials show they do.

16.) Garbage bags do not make good parachutes.

17.) Marbles in gas tanks make lots of noise when driving.

18.) You probably DO NOT want to know what that odor is.

19.) Always look in the oven before you turn it on; plastic toys do not like ovens.

20.) The fire department in Austin , TX has a 5-minute response time.

21.) The spin cycle on the washing machine does not make earthworms dizzy.

22.) It will, however, make cats dizzy.

23.) Cats throw up twice their body weight when dizzy.

24.) 80% of Women will pass this on to almost all of their friends, with or without kids.

25.) 80% of Men who read this will try mixing the Clorox and brake fluid.

my heartfelt congratulations to ALL of you....

from my seat, the only difference between having a boy or a girl is where their pee comes out.

ok, and maybe what part of the diaper leaks during the early days; I noticed that boys having a 'mudflap' tends to send the mustard river backwards.

but outside of that? same difference. gender has no bias in the ratings of love and frustrations of parenting.

congratulations, and prayers for continued health and happiness!
