Los Ninos

My wife and I have been trying to have another baby for quite some time now, and recently learned that she is pregnant with twins (!). I knew this was a possibility, given that we were using some fertility related treatments.

Earlier, I had said that if I had twins, I would jump off the roof, and if it was triplets, I would jump off the roof, get someone to take me up again, and through me off another time.

However, I have reconciled myself with the idea.

Yesterday, we had an ultrasound and learned that one will be a boy and the other a girl.

You can't imagine my relief.

Two boys would have killed me. Maybe not right away, but after a few years, I sense I would simply expire.

Having a girl, tempers this somewhat, and may prevent son #1 from unduly influencing the two new ones to join his gang to take over the family.

The one girl is the one hope in preventing a reprisal of The Wild Bunch on the home front...

congrats. My wife thought we might have twins too and was kind of disappointed we weren't. Myself, I was amazed she got pregnant, I still am, can't quite believe it and we're expecting the same time as you.
