I asked G, for whom is the surprise? Should the surprise not be for the parents? Because for everyone else it is just a peice of information that they pass along to the rest of the world. It is definitely not going to make a difference to their life in any form.
Yet the proud parents thought it was going to be a surprise...and I could not help laugh.
G and I made the choice not to find out about the gender of Babs. Because we want it to be a Surprise for us and not for others...and a surprise it was :) But then if you decide to find out the gender...then why not spread the joy...
Actually if you look at it...the news, the gender of the baby, is a surprise to you no matter when you find out...so what is the big deal?
