Um, excuse me rude stranger, do you not realize that minimizing the importance if my sons is hurtful to them?? Do you not see that commenting that we 'finally did something right' means our boys were all wrong?! Please close your mouth and walk away before I
Oh I feel you on that, only we are the opposite. 2 girls and then a boy. I am so so sick of the comments. He was a complete surprise to us, so no, we weren't trying for a boy!
