When I first heard I was having a boy I was pissed. No lie. I know you're supposed to not care - "as long as it's healthy" blah blah blah...but I did. I was ready to write my congressman. Call the Better Business Bureau or something. Not much I could do as it turns out.
So, instead - I accepted it and just told everyone I was going to dress our son in dresses. (For the record, he's 5 and has yet to don a single frilly frock.)
And a beautiful thing happened...
I started to realize just how wonderful little boys were. They were crazy. And hilarious. Much less expensive than little girls. And if you don't know already - they LOVE their mommys.
So, as a convert to the joys of mothering little boys I have grown to love dirty trucks, bugs, spiderman costumes and sweet things like baseball themed parties.
I just had the opportunity to organize a baseball themed party for Camden who just turned 8. The party was at an awesome place: Sandlot Sports (baseball/softball facility) with batting cages and a private party room - you have to check them out. The staff was extremely helpful and I can't think of a cooler place for an 8 year old's party! Not to mention this particular 8 year old is especially deserving of such a party. I can only hope that one day my own little monster is as well behaved and sweet as the birthday boy.
Happy Birthday Camden!
