Yesterday my neighbours found out they’re having a little girl. We’re all really excited. Little Red has been going around saying, “a baby goyol” when we ask what’s in Angela’s tummy. It’s so cute.
They were telling me that the night before Lee was hoping it was a boy (and Ang had thought it was a boy all along), to keep him from being completely outnumbered as he has another daughter from a previous marriage. I just looked at him and said, “welcome to my world.”
Suddenly he realized that it’s not that big of a deal and that I am his cosmic opposite, in my boy world.
I’m really excited for them, and I think they’ll be good girl parents. I’m also glad I can get my girlyness out without having to have a daughter of my own, as I don’t think we’d make especially good girl parents. Some people can do both, but Paul and I just do boys. I’m fine with that, so long as there are enough people out there raising girls.
