... there are just a WHOLE LOT of baby boys being born this year? Nearly every couple we know has had or is having a son.

As you may already know, by 9.5 months everybody you meet thinks it's their business to inquire about the baby. Strangers ask you when you're planning to "pop". Last week some random (and very talkative) lady in Target also wanted to know the gender.

"It's a boy", I replied, slightly scattered between trying to find some elusive jumbo waterproof changing pads, and still managing to be polite.

"A BOY!" She crowed. "All the babies this year are boys! You know, my gramma always said that when everyone has boy babies, there's gonna be a war. She said it was God's way of preparing armies for when they're needed."

Nice, lady. I really want to hear that God is giving me my son so that he can go die in a war in 20 years. Do you realize you're implying that I'm having a son for the sole purpose of being either bullet fodder or a killing machine?

Way to go.

ROFL!!!!! Oh, Sarah... so funny.
Anyways, YES! I totally concur-so many boys being born this year! Like, a LOT of them. As in, every baby I know of that has been born this year-has been a boy. Interesting...
