{Raising Little People} What if you could choose a boy or a girl..

I am the mother to two little girls.

I am pregnant with my third child. We don’t know what we are having, and we won’t find out until our little one is born.

What I find amusing is the amount of people who ask if we are ‘trying for a boy’.

No, we aren’t. In fact, my husband wants quite the opposite. He is hoping this is also a girl. He likes being the ‘father of dragons’ and seeing the relationship formed between little sisters is an amazing thing to watch. If you have sisters, you know there is no one closer.

Having said that, the ability to choose the gender of your unborn baby is a powerful decision.

I have a beautiful friend who desperately wants a girl, so much so that she has been changing her diet and doing everything possible to increase the chance that their next little bundle will be a pink one. What is she had the ability to choose? It’s not that a little girl would be more loved, she would simply fit better into their family. They have two boys who are robust, testosterone driven little men and a little lady would complete their family. There is nothing wrong with that, is there?

What do you think? Would you want to choose the gender of your new little person?
