Anyway, I’m applying it to waiting to find out the sex of our baby. Since statistics (and most people’s reactions when I tell them) say I’m in the minority, I thought I’d speak up for those of us with neutral nurseries.
Here are my favorite reasons to wait:
Finding out the sex before the birth is like opening your Christmas presents in July.
“A baby need’s an entrance!” –Jerry Seinfeld
When the baby’s born it will be so much fun to hear “It’s a boy!” or “It’s a girl!” and we can say, “Awwww…” rather than “Duh!”
We don’t care if it’s a boy or a girl so why do we need to know ahead of time?
Yellow, green, purple, red, black, white, brown…there are plenty of other colors besides pink and blue
When we tell people we had the baby they’ll be on pins and needles, waiting to find out what it was. If they already know they’ll just ask, “Um, how much did it weigh?”
It’s the last time we’ll ever get to be surprised!
Our parents and grandparents didn’t get to know.
We have the rest of our lives to know what it is. Why can’t we wait a few months? –fellow mom-to-be Halle Berry
Knock Knock. Who's there? I can't tell you until sometime around April 24th!
