Remember how excited I was to find a skating penguin for Daughter's expectant friends's baby shower invitations?
Well, the gender reveal was Saturday and....it's a boy. The skating penguin got nixed as being too girly but since the baby is due in January she still wants a winter themed card so I've been playing with what I have in the stash and have more on the way.
What really gets me is that I wanted a stamp that said this so I ordered one I found in an Etsy shop in Canada which cost me a small fortune only to find out I already had that sentiment in another stamp set. Serves me right for not stash diving before I go internet surfing for ideas.
Now I am going to rant a bit about gender reveals. Daughter, who attended, said that her poor friend was disappointed it was a boy. She had hoped for a girl. It got me thinking about how hard it must be to be disappointed for so many more months. I have to confess I was disappointed when Son #1 was a boy-for about 10 seconds. As soon as they handed him to me I didn't care what he was. He was the love of my life.
Ditto for Son #2. I had hoped for a girl but by now I knew I would love whatever it was.
How could you not? It must be so hard for first time moms to go through all that reveal nonsense. I am sure there must be benefits but I'm not seeing them from here today.
