Yesterday I learned we’re having a girl.
This is exciting news. Especially since everyone thought we were having a boy.
But this is also frightening news.
Now I’m calculating prices for ballet lessons, for prom dresses, for a wedding. Let’s not forget this girl will need pink everything–princess costumes, a hundred pairs of shoes, a dozen purses or handbags. Cosmetics and other beauty supplies, don’t even get me started.
God, I am looking forward to having a girl! And I mean that with all my heart. A little princess is on the way. And I can’t wait!
Now I just need to learn one thing–how to say “NO.”
