I want a baby boy

Yesterday, we attended a birthday party of my nephew who just turned 1. He was a very nice and well behaved baby boy. He was nothing like I imagined for a boy. I never liked to have one, because I thought they're all too rowdy and hyperactive for me to handle, so I was glad that I will be having another girl. Too bad, my husband really wanted a girl. But, yesterday, this little boy made me realized that boys can be angels, too. Now, I really want to have one.

There is nothing wrong is you want a girl or a boy. They are still angels and belssings to you. In my opinion, it will really depends on how you teach the kids to behave and listen to you whether it is a girl or boy. I have a son turning two this June, they said that this will be the "teribble" age for kids but my son behaves well and listen to you. Although sometimes, he will insist what he want but when he knows that you are angry, he will stop. You can give him instructions and he will follow. Yes he is hyperactive but can be controlled.

I guess you're right. They may be naturally hyperactive, but there is what we call discipline, and we, as parents are responsible of instilling it to them. My daughter grew up being taken care of mainly by her nanny, since both me and my husband are working. I guess that's also how she got so unruly sometimes, because she could just insist on what she wants without being reprimanded. Now, that I'm staying at home, I'd have to do all I can to make her a more behaved girl.

Yes, as parents we are responsible on how to raise our kids and how they will behave in the future. Same with me, me and my wife are working so my son is always with her nanny. I just want to share but not really on the behavior of my son. On his previous nanny (resigned to us because she went abroad), our son could not talk straight as well as doesn't care when we arrived from work. Perhaps because he was not taught by the nanny who is always holding her cell phone and texting/calling somebody. Now with his new nanny, our son kissed our hands (mano in Filipino) when we arrived from work, embraces us. He can also count up to 20 and can identify the alphabet. I saw his nanny giving him instruction to hug and kiss our hand when we arrived. Good for us to have a nanny like her. She was religious too. She was the one who teaches our son to count up to 20.

Wow, you're lucky to have a great nanny in the house. It's not easy to find one, nowadays, and all even more difficult to find someone who can stand as our kid's second mother. Most of them are just after earning every payday, and would even just give us a good show, when we are around, but when we turn our backs, they couldn't care less about our kid's well being. I hate to stereotype nannies, but I can't help but be suspicious about them, especially on the first few months. I'm not easy to please, on matters like this, but I strive to have a decent relationship with the nanny for my kid's sake.

Yeah,it's twice as hard to raise twins.Especially within a year old are they.In addition,my wife and me,just two of us rear them,especially hard.Now they are 8 years old,they can do many things themself.We are easier than ever before.

That's a good thought. Parents may have a hard time taking care of twins when they're still a baby and dependent on us, but as they grow to be good individuals, they can actually make our lives easier. What with 4 extra hands to help in the house and other stuff. Plus, when they finish school and start off a good career, that will just make us even happier.

I'm 24 weeks pregnant and two weeks ago, I found out that I'm gonna have a baby boy. At first, I was somehow worried because little boys are hyperactive as what you said. But I realized that baby boys are not that bad at all. It depends on how we raise them and how they behave in different situations. Kids are kids and I'm so excited to have one.

Boys are great :) I have 6 boys, ages 13, 10, 7, 4, 2 and 5 months (and 2 girls age 16 and 5) and having a teenage daughter, i thank God that I only have to go through one more teenage girl and pray that boys are easier at that age lol.
