I feel like this year is the year of the boy.
I've had a number of friends who have daughters, recently give birth to boys, and another one expecting.
I love when people don't pine for 'one of each'.
However sometimes when I hear people talk about only wanting daughters, it leaves me thinking 'what's wrong with boys'
The answer of course is 'absolutely nothing'.
I can't express in words how grateful I am for my boys. They have so much to offer.
Sure they can be loud, but it's fine when they're yelling 'I love you mumma'.
Sure they can be active, but that's fine when they are bowling you over with a cuddle.
Sure they can be tough, but you'll find that they've got an emotional side that requires extra care and attention.
Sure they can be dirty, but you'll find they can define themselves and have a sense of style all of their own too.
I wish every mother could experience the joy that comes with a boy.
