A recent post on pinterest titled "20 Things no one told you about raising a boy" inspired this blog post.
As many of you know, I had my first child on my wedding anniversary, May 23, 2011. A boy. A beautiful, healthy, happy baby boy. You may not have known that all my life, I wanted a girl, at least first. I don’t know why. Maybe because I’ve always considered myself a feminist. Maybe because I hoped to raise a little girl to be more than a pink obsessed barbie-doll. When I found out I was having a boy, I was NEVER disappointed. I just immediately thought it was going to be a challenge because I didn’t know much about raising a boy (I was around to see my nieces grow up in their infant-toddler years and a lot about raising girls). Needless to say, having a baby boy changed my life in the most amazing ways.
