Today’s slice is a throwback to last spring…
The gel was on my tummy. This was the moment we had been waiting for… confirmation that the life growing in my tummy was a boy. There were only boys born in my family for the last twenty three years. This little one was a boy. No doubt!

We watched in silence.
“Alright, I know what it is. Tell me when you’re ready.”
I looked at Ryan, my husband, he kind of shrugged.
“I’m ready,” I said.
Then we waited. She reached up and hit a switch. Click!
The room lit up in a soft pink… I blinked. I looked around a bit confused… Pink lightbulbs lit the small room…
I’m having a girl?!
