It is official
Today I officially changed my referral request from a girl to a girl or boy under the age of 3. Of course, I would love a son as much as a daughter - I think I got wrapped up in the fun dressing up aspect of having another daughter. I think I was also a little worried that as a single mom - maybe I wouldn't be able to raise a son. Let's face it - I don't know much about potty training a boy! Although I have seen the little flushable boats you can put in the toilet. Part of the reason I decided to make the switch may be because I am not very good at waiting! I know that I want sons - I was just going to wait on the boys because I have so many girl clothes already.
I was a little worried that my daughter would have a hard time getting used to the idea of a brother - she has had a pretty concrete conception of a little sister. When I talked about it with her last night though - she was really excited and said that she wanted a little brother.
By changing my request to either a boy or a girl - I am pretty much asking for a boy because there are lots more boys than girls in Kyrgyzstan. I was a little anxious today about making this decision - but I feel really good about it now. I am really excited about having a little pumpkin in a cute blue mouse hat!
