I have three sons and zero daughters. When my boys were small, I would hear the question, “Are you going to keep trying for a girl?” until I thought my head would explode. Some folks seemed affronted when I would tell them I was done having kids. As if, by having only sons, I was somehow disrupting the natural order of the universe.
The above is the first paragraph of the article I wrote in 2014 about having only sons. The article went viral and it’s since been published around the globe in at least a dozen languages. I can only ascertain that it hit a “soft spot” for moms who are parenting only boys.
It only recently occurred to me that I should record it as a podcast. I hope you’ll enjoy it.
My sons are the greatest joy of my life…and I know yours are, too.
