Beautiful baby werewolf

As we told people the boy news yesterday it gradually occurred to me that this news is not as shocking and amazing to everyone else as it is to me. For people living in the real world, there are essentially only two choices, baby-wise, and you're pretty much bound to get one or the other. But I was so sure it was a girl that I couldn't have been much more surprised if the ultrasound technician had announced that we were going to be the proud parents of a beautiful baby werewolf.* I just never thought I would have a boy, and I can't wait to have one.

I have to hand it to my mom for not pointing out how right she was about my lack of baby gender-predicting abilities. She did say rather sadly that she had hoped I would someday be the mother of a 14-year-old girl (she did not add, "a HORRIBLE 14-year-old girl," but we both knew what we were talking about). That's part of the reason I'm thrilled to be having a boy. Boy baby clothes are not usually as cute as girl clothes, but boys are often less of a pain in their mothers' asses when they are 14. Or so I have observed.

Soon I will post a totally non-baby-gushing entry, I swear. It will have intellectual depth and will feature a post-structural analysis of something or other.

*I guess technically the jury is still out on the werewolf thing, since we are only at the waxing crescent moon right now. Also it was 8:00 in the morning which I guess is a pretty human time for werewolves anyway. And do baby werewolves change in utero? These are questions that go shockingly unanswered by What to Expect When You're Expecting.

I think you need to get to work on the What to Expect When You Might Be Expecting a Baby Werewolf series. A sure-fire hit!

Dude, if you have a baby werewolf? Your cats would have a shitfit.

I'm excited to flex my auntie skills on a boy baby! My nephews think Nordic Boy is way cooler than me, but this could be my chance to redeem myself! (Wow, can I make everything about me or WHAT?)

Whatever you end up having, I think it's all a lot to absorb. Becoming a parent--becoming someone's mom--is so huge. I know I read scads of books to help me wrap my head around the whole BOY thing--"Real Boys" and this book called "It's a Boy: Women Writers on Raising Sons." Both very helpful at the time--especially the essays.
Nothing about werewolves in there, though.

If we have a baby werewolf, maybe it will eat the cats. I think that would be the best possible outcome.

Thanks Misha--I'll check those out.
