Boot to the hand!

I’m pretty sure the kid kicked my hand last night. What did I do to deserve that kind of treatment?

Ultrasound scheduled for Friday morning. With any luck, we’ll find out what kind of equipment s/he’s packing. In the past few days I’ve been feeling what I call “The Father’s Imperative.” A little part of me really hopes it’s a boy, which is not to say that I will be disappointed or resentful if it’s a girl. If it’s an alien… well, then I’m going to be all kinds of pissed. No extraterrestrial comes to Earth, poses as me and secretly impregnates my wife without so much as a “by your leave!” Not on my watch, buster. If it’s an alien, nothing less than intergalactic war will soothe my wrath.

A boy would be nice, though. Or a girl. Yeah. A boy or a girl.

No aliens.

  1. Let me see if I can remember this correctly. When someone’s TWIN sisters were born and mom called home from the hospital, she told that someone that he must have wished for a sister extra hard because he got two. Anyone else remember this??? Or should I say, Thagg and KJToo do you remember this? We all know that KJWon is lacking in memory department….ah well…they say that the mind is the first to go, I just wonder why KJwon’s is going before Thagg’s????? Any takers on that one? Well, I certainly hope that it isn’t an alien either, but I think that maybe it is going to be a girl…….and Auntie is normally right about that sort of thing…….

  2. Anyone else remember this???

    If I wished for a sister it’s probably because I realized that I’d never be able to properly beat up any of my brothers, not even my younger brother.

    I checked out a Chinese gender predictor thingee on the Intarweb today, and it boils down to this: If the child was conceived between April 1st and April 7th, it’ll be a girl. If it was conceived between April 8th and April 30th, it’ll be a boy.

    Then I checked out a different Chinese gender predictor thingee (on the same Intarweb) and it pretty much said it’ll be a girl.

  3. Could be triplets – one of each.

    My memory is FINE; cynical siblings and such just find it amusing to withhold valuable information from me. I’m a VICTIM!! I need a HUG, not ginko biloba!
    KJToo Says: “I checked out a Chinese gender predictor…” …the baby’s going to be CHINESE?? How’d THAT happen?

    You need a kick in the ass and to pay attention.

    …the baby’s going to be CHINESE?? How’d THAT happen?

    The baby won’t be Chinese, s/he’ll just have a Chinese gender. Again, pay attention!

  5. That’d be KLOVE 96.9 from the Glass City (hope it helps).

    I do not recall JamWoman’s claim of mother’s phone call. Thankfully, JamWoman does not either. Good catch.

    IIRC, Grandma had some difficulties accepting the existence of Lil’Sis. She was sure her grandson was playing a cruel prank.

    Do not depend on MFC to foretell the gender (Chinese or otherwise) of your child(ren). She batted 0% with ours. All were to be brown-eyed girls.

  6. I can’t help it if none of you remember things that only happened almost 28 years ago. I said if I remember correctly, meaning that Mom has told me several times the story of how KJToo wanted a little sister.

    KJWon, we can’t help it if you are out of the loop, it isn’t our fault that you moved so far away.

    Thagg, I have to say that I had a dream that KJToo and Lola had a girl, and I am pretty accurate in that regard seeing as I dreamt that Kailin was going to be a girl, and that Jen’s Grace was going to be a girl as well.

    KJToo, does KJthree know about your site?

    Uh-huh. You just keep dreamin’.

  8. The medical profession places resposibility for the childs gender on the father, not the aunties wishes/dreams.

    BTW, I had a dream that… Oh, wait.

    Nevermind.

  9. All I have to say is, whoops! I guess I was 100% wrong this time, as I had also dreamt that my friends were going to have a girl, and I found out right after I found out that KJToo was having a boy, that they are too…

    Your wangnosticator is on the blink!

  11. My wagnosticator is on the blink? I should probably have that looked at….
    Thagg, you’re right, don’t even go there……
