This is the comment I get alot. I just got it again yesterday. They ask, "What did you have, a boy or girl?". I answer, "A boy". And they smile "Oh isn't that wonderful, a million dollar family, one of each, now you can stop". Yes, they are wonderful but what if I had had a girl, would she not have been as wonderful? Would my family not yet be complete? I love my boy and my girl. They are absolutely the most wonderful beings in my life but I would have felt the same about another girl, or two boys. I have to bite my tongue every time because I want to yell this at them, so instead I smile, "Yes, a million dollar family".
It doesn't matter, I am blessed and rich in more ways than just gender.
Here are a few million dollar smiles.
