When I tell people I have three boys they often say "Wow, three boys! You have your hands full." And I apreciate getting those comments, because I DO have my hands full! That's why I made that Sleep Deprived Parent shirt came from...and the ALL BOY design - those came straight out of my own experience. And that was when I only had too.
But my boys are also a huge blessing and joy to me...and I wanted to make a design that conveyed that also. I'm thinking of "Blessed With Boys." I'm sure I'm not the only one who's ever done that but it's short common language so I think I'll be alright there.
My one hold-back is that...well, I don't want to convey the wrong meaning with that either. Just had a long conversation with a friend who spent a year in another country where boys are considered a blessing, and girls a burden, so much so that female infanticide is common. I know there's a lot of places around the world like that.
But of course I don't mean that boys are a blessing and girls aren't. ALL children are blessings. But my boys do overhear the "hand-full" comments sometimes, and they are getting to where they can read now (the older one can, second is learning, thrid one...well, he knows the letter O and U)...and I want them to see me wearing that and feel good about being who they are.
Maybe I should do a girls design too. Maybe "Grateful for my girls" or something like that. Any thoughts?
