My daughter is nothing like this This sounds more like my two sons. Its amazing how different they all are.

I have a boy and I love playing with him and being with him. With that said he isnt a typical boy boy either in my mind. He isnt as wild and active as most boys, he is happy to sit and color, read, play with his letter books, etc He doesnt have an overwhelming interest in all things that move (cars, trucks etc) and isnt into balls that much either. When we go out he move but he stays close and isnt climbing or touching a ton of things. He is curious but is more timid Id say and reserved. So in many ways I dont know if this is the typical mom with a boy experience either. I would be fine with a more active tumble kind of boy as I was like that as a kid but I also like to read and color and he does too so it works for us. Id love to do princess stuff as Im a girly girl nowadays (more tomboy as a kid) but Im not sure what would be better for me

Drake is more like this. He likes to color, read, play with letter books and blocks. Most of the time he stays close to me and just plays by me even when we are out. When I take him to Gymboree class he isnt running and climbing (he actually doesnt climb anything) like the other boys (and some of the girls) Today in class he sat with the girls mostly and played with a puppet while the boys in the class ran around.

Even before I had kids I knew I was destined to be a boy mom. I grew up with two little brothers and was raised mostly by my dad. Monster trucks, motorcycles and mud are in my blood. I was never too girly until I reached adulthood, even now I'm not too girly. My boys tend to be pretty high energy and can pretty destructive but they've gotten much better with age. They're (almost always) very well behaved in public settings. They do need to get out of the house nearly everyday to play, and they love to climb on stuff! I think I could definitely use a more laid back kid this time around, but based off the little girls I know (my nieces) I don't know if I can handle the drama! Plus I know how I was when I was a teenager and God help me if I have a daughter like myself! That being said, I'd still really love to have a girl and I'm game for handling it all.

I always wanted a girl but im not sure i'd ever consider myself a good "girl" mom haha I like doing my hair and makeup and wearing heels and dresses when the occasion arises but i'm not very girly in general. Luckily for me DD despises pink, likes sharks and dinosaurs more than princesses etc. But we still have to have the occasional tea party haha And honestly she loves painting her nails and I really have grown to enjoy doing "girly" things with her. If this one is a boy i'm curious to see how I will be as a "boy mom"
