Family of 4

So as I have said I am a mom for the second time. This time to a little boy previously I had a daughter. I am married, we both work, have a house, and cars. You know the perfect family thing, or at least that’s all I kept hearing while I was pregnant and now when we are out in public. I told my husband we may have a second child and here he is but that was it! I was done after number 2  no matter the sex. Well just so happens we had a boy. Yay! Right? That would be a great end to our story if I didn’t have to constantly hear how we did it right. What does that even mean? Because we have one of each we somehow are better than parents who have one or multiple kids and they are all the same-sex? People are so weird and I honestly wonder if they hear themselves before they speak. The comment is not only rude but it is really judgemental and can provide parents with a complex if they were/were not able to conceive one of each sex. Correct me if I am wrong! Tell me I am complaining about something I shouldn’t complain about but give me good reasons why not!

I recently thought about adding one of those family stickers to my back window. Yes this coming from the girl who had a previous decal that stated and I quote ” Fuck you and your stick figure family” with two stick figures in compromising positions. But then this brought another question to my mind. If I put this on my car does the male figure come first or female since it is my car? I even asked Facebook and got a lot of mixed reactions. Personally I think I should go first. Like I said it’s my car, he can go first on his car. But then patriarchy came into plan well needless to say I have not found or ordered a decal as of yet.

Well gotta go the newest member of the family has decided sitting in his swing is not working for him anymore lol. laters
