My dream family (from when I was about 10 or 12 yrs old) was 7 kids...
I didn't care whether boy or girl, I just wanted a big family.
Then, I had my first two children ~DAUGHTERS. It was at that point that my hubby and I both decided that our 'ideal family' was four daughters. NO SONS! (You read that right, my hubby didn't even really want sons, he wanted all daughters!)
It's a Boy!!!Pregnancy #4...
It's TWO Boys!!And then we were done!
So, for a couple that didn't want any boys, we ended up with three of them!
Would I change it? NO! Not for a million daughters (or dollars!)
My girls are definitely different from my sons! Not that anyone taught my boys to be 'boys', it is just in their nature. It is an amazing (and different) journey raising boys then girls... but both equally fulfilling!
I loved reading Rachel's hilarious stories, fun lists, and her tales as she lets us in her home and life.
Though this book was not what I originally expected, I thoroughly enjoyed every page!
I expected this to be about lessons learned through God's word and experiences in God's presence and lessons she learned from her sons.
