When my wife was pregnant I had visions of being a father. Playing catch in the back yard. Fishing in the lake. Camping out in the hills.
Then I found out we were having a girl. I know I know you can do all that stuff with a girl but it kind of changed my vision of the future. To compensate I started making a list of why it is better to have a girl than a boy. For example my number one item was “My genetics are most likely not good enough to sire a super bowl winning quarterback but they are good enough to have someone marry a super bowl winning quarterback.”
Well this weekend I learned it isn’t always better to have a girl than a boy. We were out camping. My daughter, being the awesome daughter she is, wanted to pee in the bushes. It sure is a whole lot easier to pee in the bushes with a son vs a daughter.
No need to paint a picture but let’s just say my daughter had some wet pant legs at the end of it.
But other than this having a girl has been a great thing. A great great thing.
