I know of two people who have refused to find out the gender of their babies – ‘because it’s the last great mystery’. Um, no. Modern science has solved that mystery. You don’t have to wonder. You can know ahead of time. Really. “Then it’s not as big a deal when the baby is born.” Yes, it is – IF you don’t tell us the baby’s name in advance. The parents who give their unborn children nicknames in utero are more creative.
Don’t want gifts of entirely one gender-specified color? Then say so… “We’re having a girl! She has enough pink already…”
