It seems everyones idea of the perfect set of twins includes one of each sex. Well, I have 2 girls. That is the perfect set of twins in my eyes.
W and I did not have the same first reaction to the sexes at our anatomy scan but I think each on our own time we spent some time being disappointed we weren't going to have a boy. It didn't hit me for quite a while where he felt it pretty quickly. Don't get me wrong, I have a sister and know how amazing a sister bond is. I'm so happy my girls have each other. I wouldn't change anything about my children. It's just I'm sick of everyone asking the same question and them seeming disappointed when I say it's 2 girls. It's like reliving that moment over and over again. And it's not my proudest moment.
The other thing is I don't love pink. I'm not a girly girl. Big surprise, when grandma offered to knit for the girls I didn't choose pink and purple. I chose my favorite shades of turquoise and she added pink buttons. As much as I don't love girly stuff I do love cute headbands. As cute as they are, we when go out my girls are wearing warm hats, not cute headbands.
I guess the flip side is that if I had one of each I'd have to hear other people tell me how perfect that is and how I'm done having children. That would probably drive me crazy too. Oh well, I guess I either better get used to it or come up with a good response.
