Will you find out if you’re having a boy or a girl? You better decide, because everybody will ask you.
My husband wanted a surprise and I said, “No way!!” I have to plan everything, and this was no exception.
So we found out what we were having, but kept it to ourselves for a few days. We wanted some time when it was just our secret, when nobody knew about our son except for us. Nobody knew yet that J was J.
Lucky for us, we found out a week before Thanksgiving. Since our families would be getting together for Thanksgiving anyway, we chose to reveal our baby’s gender at Thanksgiving dinner. We had a lot of fun planning, having the cake made and revealing to our family that they would be having another grandson/nephew.
But you know what? Next time, I want it to be a surprise. Next time, I don’t want to plan everything.
Next time, when someone asks me, “Are you having a boy or a girl?” I want to look at them, smile, and say, “Yup!”
