Truth be told: Grilled Grandma Kc

When asked what flavor of baby they're hoping for, most expectant moms and grandmas say something along the lines of, "Oh, it doesn't really matter to me if it's a girl or a boy, as long as it's healthy." Yes, we all want our babies and grandbabies born healthy, but c'mon, most of us have a preference in terms of gender.

Which is why it's refreshing to read the honest response of this week's Grilled Grandma, Kc, when she states her concerns upon first learning she's going to be a grandma. She says:

My other fear was – what if it’s a boy? I would have loved one but been completely clueless on what to do with him or even how to change him!

I totally relate. I had only girls, wanted only girls as my children. Mostly because I just knew I'd screw up a little boy as I had no healthy models for parenting boys. At least if I had girls, I reasoned, I'd know what they want and need, physically and emotionally. Boys were foreign little beings. Until I had my grandson. Now I'm thoroughly thrilled to have learned a thing or two about little males and look forward to the arrival of our second grandson come the end of spring.

Much to her delight, a little girl was bestowed upon Kc as her first grandchild, and she was dubbed Amara. Kc's love for Amara knows no bounds but I reckon it would have been exactly the same way even if her grandchild had been a boy — except she'd have quickly learned a thing or two about changing the diapers of the little guys, which as we all know (at least those of us who have done it), it's a wee bit different.

Read all about Kc's adventures as lovely Amara's grandma in Grilled Grandma: Kc. Further adventures of Kc and her special little gal can be found on Kc's blog, the link to which is included at the bottom of her grilling.

Today's question:

Do you get along better with males or females, of any age?
