She just can't win
When I was pregnant with baby #5, Bella hoped for a sister. She got Nahshon.
When I was pregnant with baby #6, Bella hoped for a sister. She got Micaiah.
When I was pregnant with baby #7, Bella hoped for a sister. She got Noah.
Today I took Bella to Toys-for-Us (that's what she calls it), because she had saved up her allowance money. She wanted to get a baby brother for her Cabbage Patch baby dolls. (these are her all time FAVORITE baby dolls) We sifted through 8 or 10 different boxes of newborn Cabbage Patch babies, all of them "surprise" babies. She found one that didn't have a bump on the top, indicating a tuft of hair which is certain to mean girl baby. We got to the car and she eagerly pulled off the cabbage leaf to reveal a bald head! Hooray! Then pulled it off all the way to reveal a pink diaper. Uh-oh? She then opened the little present box to find out for sure, and pulled out a purple romper that said "It's a Girl!" She ended up with a bald baby girl. She said she was still happy, but next time, she was going to look for a boy baby doll from a different company that doesn't do "surprise" babies. This poor girl just can't win!
