Overheard, by my older cousin, during our big Italian-cookie making fest, which, shockingly, I attend much less for the cookies (try to contain your amazement) than for the socialization with my aunts and cousins.

Connor was sitting at a table eating lunch with my cousins's kids who are all about 5-7 years older than him.

"Guys, I need to talk to you about something."

"What is it, Connor?"

"Guys, I need to know WHY my mom's baby has to be a GIRL?!?"

The explanation from my cousin's 12 year old daughter that God wanted our family to have a little girl was sufficient for him, but he isn't accepting this without a fight.
