Yesterday I was in Gymboree browsing through items near the cash register when I overheard the following conversation between two women.
“Oh, I see you finally got your little boy.”
“Yes, I am so excited to have him. After two girls this was a wonderful surprise.”
“I just had my son three months ago and I was so glad he was a boy.”
“I know what you mean. Girls can be so difficult. I was hoping and hoping this baby would be a boy. I didn’t want another girl. “
This woman’s two girls, about 4 and 7, were standing right next to her listening to this.
I wanted to walk over there, scream at that woman, and take her daughters with me.
Do not do that to them. Be thankful for them and let them hear that.
I’m wishing her a lifetime of “easy” with her little boy.
