Surprise no more

When I was pregnant with my two kids, I didn’t have an ultrasound so I didn’t really know their gender until the day I gave birth to them. I bought unisex colored baby stuff and prepared two sets of names. When the doctor said the magic words (‘It’s a baby girl/It’s a baby boy’) I knew it was worth the wait. But now, ‘gender reveal party’ is an in thing to do. If you key in ‘baby gender reveal’ on YouTube, you’d be swamped with all kinds of videos from excited soon-to-be parents. Social media is flooded with hundreds of ideas on how to organize a perfect gender reveal party. Have you ever joined one?

I have been to gender reveal parties. If I ever do have kids, sure having a party to reveal the gender would be fun, but I would do a twist, instead of everything blue and pink, I would just do rainbows and say, "It don't matter" haha because it really doesn't matter to me the gender of anyone.

@sol_cee rainbow is for the equality because even if I had a boy that is actually a girl, or a girl who is actually nonbinary, if they are gay or straight or asexual, I don't want to announce their gender just because of stereotypes. haha

My nephews was out of this world awesome. I could not believe the work that went into that party. Cae boss made the cake. I would not have paid that but good grief I was happy to be there. I wanted a girl so bad and the funny thing was in stores all I could see was pink. I bought pin everything. Before my babay shower which I call a blanket affair. I had just about everything myself. It was a sad disgrace. The local store had blankets on sale for $10 I had everyone on the shelf. It was a blessing I never rely on anyone.
