I’ve just woken from a much needed half snooze on the sofa, surrounded by the normal hustle, bustle and noise of the children in the same room. Not the best form of relaxation but better than nothing and I’m really finding it impossible to get through the day without nodding off at some point.
Anyway, as you probably know already, I am now expecting number nine. There are six boys and two girls and the lineup is as follows:
Child 1 – Boy – Age 17
Child 2 – Girl – Age 16
Child 3 – Girl – Age 11
Child 4 – Boy – Age 7
Child 5 – Boy – Age 5
Child 6 – Boy – Age 4
Child 7 – Boy – Age 3
Child 8 – Boy – Aged 15 months
As you can see and as mentioned in previous posts, the five of the boys were all born within the last seven years.
So it occurred to me, that if the newest one is a girl, that there will be somebody bound to utter the words to the effect of,
“Well now you finally have another girl you can stop now, eh?!”
Or if it’s another boy will we be asked,
“So will you try again for a girl?”
Because of course, that’s what it’s about.
But you know it’s bound to happen, no? Somebody’s going to say it. It’ll be interesting to see how long it takes!
