birthday

there were five grandsons in my family
when the doctor told my mother, "it's a girl!"
"you're lying," my mother said.
he wasn't.

It is good to hear a role reversal story of a family pleased to have a girl after a series of sons. Usually, particularly in some foreign cultures, you hear stories of some families who keep having babies after a series of girls, hoping to have a son.

All birthdays should be on a Saturday. I trust your family will have an enjoyable and traditional birthday festivities today. Best wishes.

A wonderful 1986 movie of the great Italian director Mario Monicelli was "Speriamo che sia femmina" (Let's Hope It's a Girl)...

Happy birthday - love the photo - hope you are having and continue to have a great day. Must be fun having all those brothers.

I posted the last two days in advance on Monte Carlo so apologies - I should have referred to your question. In fact I had friends staying and too many dogs and it's still chaos.

Open the champers!

So, you can be described as a very good surprise!..To grow up with so much brothers must have taught you a lot about boys, which can always be useful..Ü
Happy birthday!
