Welcome to the first Mom's in Boyland blog! I started this to document my quest for conceiving a child that does not have a penis, namely a beautiful baby girl. Let me give you some background. I'm 28 years old and have been with my wonderful husband , Brian, for 5 1/2 years. Together we have two wonderful boys; Bryson who will be 4 in January, and Tyler who will be 11 in January. I had Tyler when I was 17 with my high school boyfriend, Tom. Tyler spends a lot of time with his father, but Brian is his day-to-day Dad. Along with the hubby, and two sons I also have a cutie patootie male Cocker Spaniel named Prince Shamma-Lamma-Ding-Dong (aka Shammy).
So I must first say I LOVE my boys! They are the sweetest, most loving,and smart kids I have ever met. Now that being said they are also the most disgusting, foul, and dirty, children I could have ever asked for.
Don't get me wrong I am by no means a clean freak or super girlie-girl, but living with 4 boys (including Shammy) is one of the most challenging things I have ever done. Simple things like closing cabinets after opening them, peeing in the toilet, not around it, and keeping bodily odors to a minimum have become my daily reminder that I am surrounded. What I wouldn't give for one day minus fart jokes, tripping over balls of assorted sizes, and cleaning up snot, chocolate milk, and permanent marker on my leather couch (thank you Bryson).
I told Brian, because I had started on this mom journey at an early age,if he wanted another kid it would have to be before my 30th birthday. Not to say 30 is super old, I just don't want to be changing diapers while Tyler is in college. I'll be raising kids my entire life at that rate, and I am no Michelle Duggar
. My only concern was how in the world I was going to accomplish being 0-3 in the girl department. Let me explain that one of the best parts of
my life has been sharing mother-daughter experiences with my own mom. I would be lost without her constant love, support, and words of wisdom. Not to mention the shopping and dinner dates. I love my momma, and I so
want the same kind of relationship with a daughter of my own.
Now with technology being what it is today I could spend thousands of dollars in medical procedures, cell manipulation, while being poked and prodded like a guinea pig. Since I am firm believer in creating a child
in the most natural way possible, I have decided to pursue every non-invasive way to get those little girl sperm to knock me up. I hope through sharing my research, thoughts, rants, and stories on this very special quest other women see that we all live in Boyland. Whether you have sons of your own, a husband, brother, father, or male boss you know the trials, tribulations, and testosterone that comes with them. Come along with this mom through Boyland.
