267. A Baby Girl

My mom was pregnant with her second child. was happy because I was going to be big brother. My dad and mom told me it was going to be a boy. I excited, because that meant I could boss him and tell him to do my chores. She all her friends that she was having a . Her friends all gave her their extra boy that their sons had used, and my mom it.

My dad was busy working on the for the baby. He painted it blue, and a blanket with race cars inside. When my went into the hospital, my dad was excited jumping up and down, but after my mom the baby, my dad came out with a look on his face. I asked him what wrong, if the baby was okay. He looked me and said yes, but that the baby actually a girl. My grandma looked at him, smacked him in the head. She said, "That's news. Don't look so depressed!"

My dad laughed said "No, I'm not depressed, I'm just confused." the first three months of her life, my looked like a boy. She wore nothing but 's clothes, because that's all my parents had gotten her. I took a lot of pictures, so could tell her later that she was actually boy, but an accident happened that changed her a girl. My mom deleted all my photos it was mean.

I'll never forget the look my dad's face when he came out of delivery room. He looked like he was trying solve a big math problem in his head. was like he was trying to count from to a million, luckily my grandma slapped it of him.
