Talking to the pregnant partner of our friend who happens to be expecting a baby girl this December, she tells me she wants to throw a baby shower. I say, one of her close friends should organize it for her. And she further says she wants a baby shower so badly because it is a baby girl- because a baby girl is special. That if it were a boy, she didn't care if she had a baby shower or not- because it is JUST A BOY.
Oh my gosh I almost lost it after hearing her say that. She knows I have 2 boys. I could not control not raising my eyebrow though. And when I think about it now, I still get irritated.
I said a baby is special. Whether boy or girl. They are precious. And the more important thing to pray about is that the baby be normal and healthy.
It's sad that she has that kind of attitude towards the gender of her baby. What if it turned out to be a boy?
