You read that correctly! I actually did reschedule EJ's 2 year check up with the pediatrician because I realized it conflicted with MOPS! I always leave MOPS feeling encouraged and motivated as a mother. And there is always an awesome brunch spread and door prizes! If you are not involved in MOPS, I highly encourage visiting this link and finding a local chapter!
Back to the point. Yesterday's discussion topic was discipline which I felt was very timely given some things that have been going on with sweet Libby lately. I was really hoping to win this book in the door prize giveaway:
But I didn't. What I did get was this:
When I went up to collect my prize (which I won for answering a question correctly), Suzette, our MOPS coordinator said, "You have a little boy don't you, Lauren?"
To which I respond, "No, two girls, but I will take it anyways." (I never turn down free prizes and anyways, I have a nephew so it definitely won't go to waste!)
Then Suzette said, "Do you know what you are having?" (No.) "Well maybe this is God-ordained!" Everyone, including me, laughed and then she moved on to the next prize.
As I returned to my seat I started to wonder, (because I am always wondering about the sex of my baby): Is this God-ordained? I mean, first Libby finds two little random pieces of It's A Boy confetti. Then I get a book for little boys. Plus every weird dream I have had lately about giving birth has always been about a boy!
Am I reading what I want to see into all of this? Or could this be a sign?
Everyone out there has an opinion about what I am having. So I am asking you to put in your two cents. Am I having a boy, like the signs seem to say? Or is it just wishful thinking? Leave me a comment and let me know what you think. Then go visit Emily's blog (who is not allowed to comment!) and vote in her "Is Lauren Having a Boy or a Girl" poll! (It's on the right sidebar.)
Only 42 more days until we know the answer...
