I feel rather confident we have all the tools to raise our son. By using the word “tools,” I mean that both the hubby and I are rather well-rounded folks. We have many varied interests that I hope will make some connection with our son. For example, we both like to read and read about different subjects such as science fiction (hubby), history (both of us), chick lit (me), social issues (both), etc. We also enjoy things like music, museums, movies and traveling. We watch a variety of sports though we don’t actively participate in any. But that’s okay because if the “boy” as my hubby calls him wants to participate in any sport, we’ll be the first ones out there helping him. We’ve also done other things in our lives that can and will contribute to the boy’s life such as camping and fishing. I mention these things just because of a conversation I had a few months ago with with the hubby’s sister-in-law before we found out the gender of our babies. She said she wasn’t sure what they would do with a boy since they don’t like sports. Well now they have to figure something out. But the hubby did point out that since it’s their son, he would most likely have similar interests as his parents. So having a boy doesn’t necessarily mean raising a sports player or even someone interested in sports.
In other pregnancy news, I am almost at the end of my 29th week. Only ten more weeks to go before we meet the boy. It’s both exciting and scary at the same time. We still have a ton of things to do. The weight and the cravings remain steady. I’ve started a new blog specifically about the baby and the pregnancy for family and friends who don’t know about this one. If you’d like to be included, let me know.
