Rebecca had a costume fitting for The Nutcracker last night, so we chatted on the drive home. Rebecca told me about a picture that she had drawn at school - it had a picture of a little girl with curly hair (but it wasn't Rebecca!), and the little girl was drawing a picture so she had a pencil in her hand, and there was a mommy cat who was sitting by her bowl of water, and there was a baby cat who was sitting by its bowl of water.
I asked her if the baby cat was a boy or a girl.
"A girl!" she answered. And then she continued talking about babies. She informed me that if you wanted a girl baby, and you got a girl baby, you can say "Yay!" She also informed me that if you wanted a boy baby, and you got a boy baby, you can say "Yay!"
So I had to ask...
"What do you say if you want a girl baby, but you get a boy baby?" (or vice versa).
So... if any of you are expecting and don't get quite what you want, you can thank Rebecca for giving you an appropriate response!
