It's a...., plus silly stories

We had our Level II ultrasound yesterday and we're expecting another BOY! Boy oh boy oh boy, I'm so excited to have a house full of little guys! I think I'm biased as N-man and B-man are so awesome that I can't imagine not wanting another little boy. I'm sure a girl would have been fine, too, though I would have been far more scared. I feel a little badly as TK always wanted a girl, but oh well, he's happy with a boy, too. And we're done after this little guy! So three boys it is (and I've never even seen the TV show My Three Sons!)


B-man is the only one in the house disappointed with the little brother situation. When I told him, he said, "but I want a little SISTER!" I explained we don't get to pick, and he said that he wants FOUR kids in the family. Keep wishing, big guy!


Unrelated to the new little guy, N-man told us the other night that he wants a dog. TK explained that he's allergic to dogs. N-man then said, completely unconcerned, "Daddy, can you leave?" We cracked up! TK asked where he should live instead, and N-man said he should just stay at work. Hmmm, it's not much of a confidence builder if your kid ranks you right below getting a dog!


In another unrelated story, TK got N-man dressed the other morning, and put him in a pair of truck underwear. Now, most of the boys' undies are communal, but they each have one set Grandma and Grandpa got them that is THEIRS. N-man has doggies, B-man has trucks. Well, obviously N-man wasn't paying attention when TK put on his undies that morning!

The boys went to school, and when they came home, N-man had to use the bathroom. He was sitting on the potty, when all of a sudden, B-man runs in, horrified. "Are those MY truck undies?" he asked indignantly.

N-man looked down, and just as horrified, ripped the clothes off his body to get the offending B-man underwear off.

So I told him I'd run upstairs to get him a different pair of undies. I ran up, got new ones, and when I got back down, B-man was naked, pulling on the truck undies N-man had worn all morning. I don't know why, but that simultaneously cracked me up and grossed me out.


More book recs coming soon! Just had to get all this random randomness out!

Congratulations on the boy news. I love, love all the brother stories - it will be fun when Ned and Penny talk and interact. You mother those boys with such grace and good humor!

Congratulations on the boy! (But I would have congratulated you on a girl too.)

The undies thing is so funny - why did I know he was going to do that?

Nancy said...

Woo hoo! A boy :)

And LOL at the undies story ... sounds like something my kids would do too ;) (Although, Burke's been running around pants-less for the past few nights...not sure what THAT'S about. Ah boys ;) )

Poor TK. Banished to work for a dog. tee hee

I did the same thing when I was little and found out we couldn't have a cat because of my dad's allergies. I asked if he could live in a hotel!

Congrats! I'm partial to boys too!

I'm equally grossed and amused by the underwear story.

Congrads! That's awesome. The little guy won't be able to get away with anything now that his big brothers have taught you all the tricks ;)

congrats on the baby boy! Boys are awesome, though I guess I'm a little partial;)
I was just discussing w/ dh the other day how weird it is that we make them share underwear, never crossed my mind until recently and now I'm grossed out by it, but they have no concern whatsoever!

The underwear story is hilarious! They will be so embarassed by that someday.

Ronnica said...

Yay for a baby boy! I'm partially to little girls, but hey, boys can't be THAT bad, right?

Mary Ellen said...

We have three of a kind in our house and I think it makes things MUCH easier. (On me, anyway!) Congratulations!!
