Do you believe
In the one big sign--
The triple-striped design
Proving a girl is next in line?
Or, do you believe
That we'll break out in blue--
The Old Wives' tales are true
And it's a boy for number two?
Is a she kicking my rib cage?
Is a he joining our brood?
Is this baby a dudette?
Or will we call the kid dude?
We are now accepting guesses...
For this beautiful...
I know I already wrote a Flashback Friday post and that this is really a post calling for gender guesses, but when I was in elementary school my friend Nadia and I would always write parodies to songs. We thought we were pretty clever. My favorite was "Let's talk about Sesame Street," based on a certain song by Salt-n-Pepa, which I don't think I ever actually heard in all my whole life and will remain unstated to protect the innocents who read this blog...but it was released in 1991 when I was six years old, just 3 years before Nadia and I wrote a parody of it. That was enough time for the "melody" (if hip hop has such a thing) and lyrics to circulate around an elementary school. It was a controversial song. Controversial songs tend to circulate.
Let's talk about Sesame Street
Let's talk about Big Bird's feet
Let's talk about all the good things
And the bad things Oscar eats.
Let's talk about...Sesame Street.
Yeah, we were just that cool and I had so much fun that I actually never stopped writing parodies. Kind of a lame hobby, I guess, but it's also fun. Sometimes I still think I'm rather clever and I force my lyrics onto other people, like today. (It was a song by Cake, in case you didn't recognize it).
We have a doctor's appointment tomorrow. We still don't have an ultrasound scheduled but are planning on finding out the gender and since I'm coming up on 19 weeks we figure that will probably happen sooner rather than later. I haven't actually really looked at those Old Wives' tales--I don't know if I'm carrying higher or lower; I've felt sicker (I think) with this pregnancy; I crave sweet and salty about equally (maybe more sweets, to be honest); I like sleep--so I don't actually know if they're applicable or not.
We are happy either way.
I put a poll on the side so you can guess there and/or leave a comment including more details (day, weight, time, etc.). If you're right we'll say congratulations...that's all we're promising.
