Difference in Opinions
Brandon and I have a HUGE difference in opinion when it comes to finding out about what an expectant parent may be having. B wants to know for sure what gender the baby would be- ME...
I WANT TO BE SURPRISED!
Maybe it sounds odd to some people but, there just are not enough surprises in life and even though I will surely be surprised when we are selected by an amazing woman, i would still love the surprise of what the baby is on the day of birth. Call me old fashioned but, i find it so fun.
And to put aside any worries that have to do with gender related stuff, here's my plan and what we already HAVE in place:
We already have gender neutral strollers/ car seats and girl covers for the car seat if it's a girl. If it's a boy, i will have a boy cover made after he's here.
I would bring boy outfits to the hospital a girl one and a boy one for the first pictures, if at all possible! We obviously have all things girl related so, if it was a boy after he's here, there's nothing a bit of shopping couldn't fix! Babies don't really care if they wear white onesies for the first few days of life, either.
I do plan on getting a new crib if it's a boy( i already have one picked out in my mind too). If it's a darling girl, I have the most gorgeous boutique style white crib with carved details that will be just wonderful!
So, the basics are covered and the rest can be fixed in a few shopping trips!!!
So, birth parents please feel free to tell Brandon, but, let me be surprised for once!
