Anyone who knows Ray and I knows that we were completely amazed and shocked and thrilled to have a little girl, after two boys. If you know the history of my mother’s side of the family, you really understand this. Mom’s mother had 10 children-5 boys and 5 girls. Of the 7 who had children of their own, none of them had both boys and girls–only all boys or all girls. Then us grandkids started having kids, and of the I think it’s 7 of us who have kids, no one has both boys and girls, when the two parents are the same for all their kids. (We do have a few cousins whose children have different father’s, and they do have both, but when the children have the same 2 parents, the kids are always the same sex). Until Mackenzie! And we’ll see what happens in the Dominey family in the future. But until then, Ray and I have been the only couple to have both boys and girls–that’s pretty cool! And also on the Wade side, Mackenzie is only the 2nd girl born in 3 generations,so it’s understandable why we were surprised! So we were curious as to whether Mackenzie would be a girly-girl, or if she would be a bit tom-boyish, with 2 older brothers. She is definitely a girly-girl, and she proved it yet again today. I was working in the kitchen, and had the new bottle of dish detergent on the sink. She came into the kithen and said, “Mommy, you bought the girl kind this time.” I have to admit that I was mystifyed, and had to ask her to show me what she meant. She then pointed to the dish detergent. Ahhh….I bought a new bottle and this time its a very pretty lavender color (smells great, too!) I am not dedicated to any one kind of detergent, although I do have a few brands that I prefer, and generally just go for what is on the sale. And I remembered that the last few bottles we’ve had here have been blue in color. Apparently this time the “girl kind” was on sale!Yup, she’s all girl!
On a totally unrelated note, I absolutely love blogging–nobody warned me that it is slightly addictive!! And what I love most about it is that when I get around to scrapbooking the “Girl Dish Detergent” picture, my journaling will already be done!! Gotta love that
