Re: How do you deal with gender dissapointment?
I was really crushed when I found out I was having a girl instead of a boy. My whole life i'd imagined a boy.
I'm very glad I found out in an ultrasound so I had time to process it and change how I felt about it. It was really a struggle though.
Several years later (maybe when she was in early elementary) I realized that she was exactly the person I needed in my life... A boy would not have fit in with my personality as well as a girl.
I am not a sports mom anyway.. I can't even unfold those lawn chairs. But, I fell in love with being a dance mom.
