Reader Poll: Boy Or Girl?

email this page

At the risk of putting just little too much out there for strangers to consume, we're going to ask you what you think. Boy or girl? Brooke's pregnancy is going very well. The little 26-week grom inside kicks around but is otherwise growing and preparing for life on this planet, in this family. This is our second child. That first one has grown up into an almost 5-year-old girl who loves fairies, princesses, ponies, treats, and dirt. Well balanced, if you'll let her own father say so. She's sitting at the table with me right now hogging scraping the tasty remnants of brownie batter off the walls of bowl using a big wooden spoon to transfer the goods to the real estate around her mouth. Oh sure, she's sweet and wonderful most of the time, always down for a bike ride with dad or a road trip to the mountains — but babies are also wonderful little critters that don't do things like put up a fight about eating vegetables. So I'm looking forward to that green, green grass I see on the other side of the street.

This week we're going in for an ultrasound and expect to be able to find out the sex of Ankle Biter #2. I'm — oh what's the word for it? — relatively freaked out. Brooke suggested we go for the surprise and wait to find out when the little grommet arrives. But I can't handle that. I never thought I'd be this way, either. So don't hold it against me. I'm just a nervous dad. If it matters to you at all, writing this out and creating this little blue vs. pink poll for you to participate in helps ease the tension on my part. I'm feeling better about this already.

With that, I bounce the ball to you:

I say boy, so that in a few years, we can talk about our experiences of being dressed in drag against our will by the big sissy, and the retaliation given at the expense of Barbie's new fashionable haircut.

And umm... My margarita radar just went off.
