Bumblebee and I have our best conversations in the car. There's nothing to distract us, and for some reason, she is extremely talkative while we're in a moving vehicle. Even more so than when we're at home.
The other day, we were going to the store and I called my sister-in-law to wish her a happy birthday. My brother and sis-in-law are expecting their first baby in June. Bumblebee heard me ask G to send pictures of her baby belly, so we started talking about the new baby.
"Mama, is Aunt G having a boy or a girl?"
"We think it's a boy, sweetie."*
In the rear-view mirror, I saw Bumblebee pout. "Everyone has boys," she huffed.
"Well, not everyone... Uncle B and Aunt N have two girls, remember? Uncle J and Aunt N also have a baby girl..."
She ignored my explanation, and declared, "Mom, it's not fair. There are more boys in the world than girls."
Since her Kindergarten class is made up of 6 girls and 14 boys, I can see where she'd get this thought.
After a few seconds of rare silence, Bumblebee sighed and concluded, "Well. I guess I have to like boys since I'm going to marry one someday."
*I never say for certain anymore. Not since an ultrasound tech told me that my second born was a baby girl. Little "Brooke Cecile" was born "The Boy."
