Well, as long as they are babies or toddlers. I am still nervous about the whole dealing with the boy teenager thing; but, we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.
It just occurred to me that I never shared the gender of baby Disco. From the title and the pictures, I am sure you have figured it out. Baby Disco is a boy. Elinor is advocating for the name "Little Mister," which I find all kinds of scary because I was considering this for the blog name "if the baby was a boy."
Little Sir is VERY excited about this, a brother means he will have someone to "play trains" with. Considering that he was introduced to the great world of trains and train-obsession by his friend Caroline, his logic doesn't make any sense, but he is two. He is excited about having someone to "roll balls" with as well. After about 10 minutes, the parental units are no fun with the ball rolling.
I have to be honest, I was looking forward to the possibility of making dresses and knitting a pink wardrobe for a little mini-me (I even bought a crapload of pink yarn, because I "had a feeling"). But after finding out that Disco has boy parts, I calmed down and remembered that: 1) I don't like the color pink, it makes me want to vomit, 2) I would have no idea what to do with a girl, really (despite the fact that I am one...), 3) Little Sir was hoping for a baby brother (after he accepted that a baby was going to be part of the picture whether he wanted one or not); and, 4) logistically, we are already prepared for a boy (you know, having one in the form of Little Sir, already)--or rather, I know what boys like.
I figure you can't go wrong with things like: planes (or helicopters--"we" have a thing for aircrafts with propellers at the moment),
trains (all makes and models),
and automobiles (these little cars are Little Sir's new thing--it's kind of driving-heh- me crazy).
