We are going to find out if the baby is a boy or a girl. I am more into getting things ready rather than being surprised, and I find knowing the gender of the baby helps with the planning.
I did not know how serious the gender of this baby was going to be until Bug and I had our brother/sister talk. It went something like this…
Me- Are you excited to have a new baby brother or sister?
Bug- Yes, if it is a girl I am going to call her Tinkerbell and if it is a boy I am going to punch it in the face.
Me- (shocked into silence)
So Bug and I had a talk about how newborns need lots of love and care from big sisters no matter if they are a boy or a girl. We also talked about how completely unacceptable punching a baby in the face is.
I have been quizzing her on the brother and sister thing in order for me to understand that she understands she may not hit a baby brother. Now when I ask her if she is excited about her new baby brother or sister she says…
Bug- I want the baby to be a girl, but if it is a boy I will not punch it in the face because that is mean and babies need love.
I am happy with that answer, but I will still be keeping an eye on little Bug.
