Are you sure?

We were on the way to school today when my oldest son mumbles, "Are you sure she's a girl?"

I figured that I had misheard so I politely asked him to speak's hard to hear when I'm driving.

"Are you sure she's a girl?", he repeated with confidence. I looked in my rear view mirror to see what he was talking about. Sure enough, he was gazing into his sister's car seat with a quizzical look on his face.

"Of course she's a girl.", I replied with a smirk. I guess the lack of long hair is throwing him off.

"Are you really sure?"

"Yes honey, I'm positive. Why do you ask? "

"She just doesn't look like one, but I guess I'll trust you."

Jeez, thanks for that one kid. I reassured him that she'll look more like a girl as she gets older. That's why we are always putting her in girl colors like pink and purple...trying to keep people from being confused. I guess that I'm not doing my job well enough though if my son is questioning if he has sister.


  1. What a great story! And what a cute smiley girl! You'll have to pull this one out for him to read when she goes to prom! Or on her wedding day!

  2. This was funny. I like how he sayd, "I guess, I'll trust you."
