An All-Boy House

The only female member of our household.
Sometimes people have trouble understanding even the basics of our family, never mind the breastfeeding and milk sharing and everything else. A friend of mine overheard her four-year-old talking to her grandmother on the phone:

“This afternoon we’re going overto Trevor’s house… Trevor and his baby Jacob… No, it’s a boy house. Trevor, Jacob, and Ian… No, it’s all boys! [sounding more emphatic] Well except forQuinoa [our dog]…. Trevor, Jacob, and Ian!... Jacob is their baby!!"

Hopefully grandma figured it out in the end. Yep, guys can raise babies too. In our more audacious moments we even like to think we're pretty good at it.

  1. Trevor - I am loving your blog...absolutely loving it! I love your attitude, the absolute lack of understanding why some of the people you talk about would use formula, exclusively pump, and the baby who self-weaned (HA!) at 4 months... Fabulous!
