4 thoughts on “Things I Will Not Tell My Son

  1. I didn’t want to know the sex of either child before they were born. My husband and I frequently heard, “But how will we know which colors to buy?”

    I answered several times, “The fact you’re asking is a great reason to remain in the dark.”

    My son was recently told he was a girl if he liked pink. I had to struggle to translate my answer into 5yo terms, but it had two key parts: (1) There is nothing wrong with or strange about being a girl, so that’s a weird statement. (2) That is patently false, and anyone who thinks such things is going to miss out on a lot of joy and wonder for the sake of concealing parts of themselves to fit in.

    He brought it up again yesterday … while happily drawing with his pink pencil.

    • I think you did a wonderful job explaining it to him. I fear I wont be so good at that when the time comes.

      I needed to know, I can’t stand not knowing but mostly for the need to feel prepared. I wante dot be sure to pick out a name. I wasn’t able to handle the surprise of the sex with so many other surprises. I’ve wondered if I could wait to find out with the next one if we do have one. I’m still not sure I could do it 😛 Even if I do, i might make it a surprise for everyone else and let on like I don’t know. At least then everyone else will be surprised lol

  2. Lol no watermark it’s not your original photo and your blog was taken of a scarymommy blog.

    Not original at all.

    You opened the can of worms by attacking a fb page claiming original content so when we created our own you and your friends proceeded to harass us.

    So do you mean to tell me that every single post that we make that’s not watermarked anyone can claim it as their own….. I don’t think so, Mark Zuckerberg would have to take down all the pages and groups and lose how much money over what unwatermarked posts that anyone can claim is there’s. Yah like his lawyers hadn’t already looked into intellectual property laws.

    I have a photo shop file of the picture your using and you post this picture without my consent I claim you are fringing on my intellectual property and want you to take the picture of your blog!

    • Okay, first of all, I created the image, I should know. I haven’t replaced it yet because I have a child, I am a mother, I don’t have time at the drop of the hat like you apparently do.

      Well considering the original is on my computer file dates from creation, you aren’t very funny in fact, all I did was sit down for a moment to look at my news feed to come across my own picture on a page I am active on and have never had a problem with before. So, I did what anyone would do, as for credit or ask to have it removed. I don’t even know what scarymommy is and I definitely didn’t steal any of my content. This is what I do, I don’t have to steal people’s content unlike you. I never asked anyone to “harass” you. In fact I didn’t even ask anyone to contact you or the page. I actually asked just the opposite. I also have the proof of that. I asked you nicely to either credit me for my work or take it down. You hold no legal right to any of my work. Water marked or otherwise. A watermark does not do anything which is why I didn’t put it on my earlier work. I didn’t attack you. I asked that my work be credited or removed. I haven’t slandered or harassed you, I haven’t done anything to you or your page. I stopped contact once my wish was met. Anything else was done of others accord, just as you decided to then steal my image and recreate it as your own. People saw what you did and acted as they wished, even against my wishes. What can I do? Nothing, I don’t care to spend time dealing with someone of your standards. It speaks may more to your character than my own. I wouldn’t steal anything from your Facebook page and plaster it for others without credit. This post and everything on this blog is completely 100% original content and I’m proud to say that.

      If you’d like to go on and live the way you do, that’s your choice. I’m not having anything to do with it. I don’t know why you feel the need to continue this. You removed the picture instead of crediting me and I left it be, that’s all I wanted.

      Are you done now? I’d like to know what sort of vendetta you have to come here and leave a comment. You stole MY image and all I asked you to do was take it down. I think you need to take a step back and breathe. Who has time for this? My image was the one that was stolen and I’m not doing anything to you, so you feel the need to be here why? Your time would be much better spent doing something productive.
