A friend writes on Facebook with a similar story that those I told in my last column for Aleteia:
Nurse: “Three boys, huh? So I suppose you guys will want to keep trying for that girl, no?”
Me: “Yeah, totally. We are SUPER disappointed in this beautiful boy. And we are only really into this parenting thing to fulfill our own desires. So, yeah, we’ll keep trying until we get what we want.”
Okay, I didn’t actually say something that crabby. I just thought it. But, seriously, who thinks like that?
Lots of people, alas.
