Stuff My Pregnant Wife Says #5 “You know, I think I’m ready for another boy!”
Welcome to another Friday blog post. Once again you can enjoy the amusing conversations from my pregnant wife. This is not made up and is completely legit. Almost too legit! Go here to read previous Stuff My Pregnant Wife Says post…
Where should I start. Hmmm. A couple weeks back we visited some good friends of ours. We just chilled with them for the weekend; playing games, eating jalapeño poppers, wrestling with their two boys and staying up way too late. Good times. The best part is that my friend owns and operates a paintball business. Its a serious common bond we have as brosephs. I love paintball. Love to play and love to own people. Whenever I visit him, I just have to see the progress he has done on his epic courses. He has an amazing knack for creating elaborate maps of mayhem. So, obviously I had to go check out the place while I was in town. Now, I wasn’t alone on that. My wife, even though she is my “blondeshell”, she has a serious interest into most man activities. I guess she gives extra meaning to the mash up of blonde and bombshell. It is awesome and breathtaking when my wife would rather see the movie; Safe House than The Vow on Valentine’s Day. For Real. I have it real good.
Anyway, she was as stoked to visit the paintball course six months pregnant as I was. We got to see the progress as we toured around in their new Gator. My wife was right into it, asking my friend all about the obstacles on his new WWII Juno Beach course. She was nodding while listening intently as he spouted off a variety of military lingo. Meanwhile, I was falling more in love with my wife as she was deeply interested in everything paintball. We spent a few more hours there that day, seeing all the inner workings of the paintball biz. Best saturday ever. As we were driving back to our friends house we were chatting about our soon to be son and how we hope he will love the outdoors like we do. It was during this conversation that my prego wife blurted; “You know, I think I’m ready for another boy!” I whipped my head to notice she had kept talking as if she didn’t realize what she said or that she was trying to pretend like it never happened. I couldn’t help but chuckle for a few seconds and follow by asking her; "Did you just hear what you said? You said, you think you’re ready for another boy. Babe, you haven’t had the first one yet! Ha!" She knew how ridiculous it sounded as well and laugh about it too. After a few moments of me repeatedly laughing and saying the phrase over, she felt the need to explain herself.
She said; "I just think I like boys. It seems like I connect with boys better. They seem to be easier to take care of…" By this time, I was just finished laughing and could tell she was digging a deeper hole, so I finally said, “Maybe we better wait until we have the first one before we decide on that, who knows this boy could be a little mini crazy me.” She completely agreed, and was still baffled why she said that. But, I marked it off as another random thought from my pregnant wife. I really funny, random thought.
Well if it was possible for anyone to start trying for another kid while they’re pregnant, I am sure we would. Ha. There you have it, another moment to mark down.
What do you think, is my wife right? Are boys easier than girls? Or does it all just depends… By the way, we would love to have a girl too… We aren’t basis just excited for our little manchild to arrive.
