I still can’t believe I am going to have a grand daughter. After three grandsons, it’s pretty difficult to get in the girl mindset. I keep thinking that it’s a mistake. They didn’t read the ultrasound right or the technician wrote down the wrong gender when she put it in the envelope for the reveal cake baker. I just can’t believe it. She has been collecting used baby clothes for a couple of months now so she says I’m not to buy anything. That’s good for the budget but I kind of need to get a few pink things so I get in the “pink mindset.”
The other day, she was going to go up the hill to the hospital (OHSU) for another ultrasound. They haven’t been able to get a good view of the entire heart yet so they keep having her go in for ultrasounds. I think the last one was number four. So anyway, I was going to tell her to ask them if it was a girl or not, just to verify, but I figured she would get mad at me and say I was being negative so I didn’t say anything. Then, a couple of days later as we were driving around doing errands, I said to her “What if they made a mistake and it’s really a boy?” Instead of getting mad, she said, “I’ve been thinking the same thing so when I went for the last ultrasound, I asked them to check and they said it’s still a girl!”
Amid all the laughter that came after that, I was relieved (1) that she didn’t get mad and yell at me for being negative, and (2) that it is a girl! I can handle another boy but to have the first girl, that’s pretty special.
Those were my smiles this past week. What about yours? What are you smiling about? I know that times are rough but we all smile every day, even though we’re not always aware of it! #WeeklySmile is a blog linkup hosted by Trent. Come take a look at our smiles and share one of yours?!
