I can’t recall picturing what kind of mom I’d be before I became one, other then when my own mom and I got into an argument, as most teenagers do with their mothers, and thought to myself, “I’ll never do that when I’m a mom.” Even when I found out I was pregnant, I didn’t envision the type of mother I would be. I also never pictured what my kids would be like before I found out I was expecting. So when God blessed Matt and I with two healthy boys, it didn’t crush my plans or preferences, because I didn’t have any! I feel incredibly fortunate to be a mom, and now that I am a mom of two sons, I can’t picture it any different. So when people ask me, “are you going to try for a girl?” Or, “are you sure you’re done having kids?” I really just want to scream, “YES, I’M SURE!!!” You see, because the one thing I did know about having children prior to having them, (once I decided I could actually handle birth) was that I only wanted two!
