First, I gotta say two things: (1) TGIF! You with me? and (2) The kids are back in school and I'm back in the Aloha Friday game!
For those of you who don't know what Aloha Friday is, here is what Kailani at An Island Life (the host of this meme) has to say: "In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too."
Ask a question, answer questions. That's how we roll with the Aloha Friday meme!
Ok, this week my question is about babies....
As parents, when we learning we're having baby, although we may not admit it, there's typically a gender that we favor. (I do believe in the "as long as it's healthy parents" but I think the majority harbor a wish for either a boy or a girl.) And some people even use methods to pick the gender of the baby (with some success, so I've heard).
So, here's the question:
Did you (or do you) have a special preference for a specific gender any of the time(s) you were expecting a baby?
The first time I was pregnant, I was just 17 and unwed; so I don't know that I really took time to think about a preferance. I had a boy. The second time I was pregnant, I desperately wanted a girl. But once I realized I was having a boy, I was okay with it. The third time, I really wanted a girl again. But when I laid eyes on my third baby boy, all that wishing was forgotten. Then I quit trying. And surprise baby number four...well, I wanted a girl. And that's what I got!
