Gender Specifics and Foreshadowing

"Why are mommies girls?" Tyler asks me.

"Because God made us that way."

"Yes, but why?  I want to know why you are a girl."

I wasn't sure how far we were going to take this: philosophy, anatomy - this questions lends many directions.

"When I was a baby inside Grandma, God decided that he wanted me to be a girl.  And girls are the ones who grow up to be mommies."

Tucker piped in, "Yes, and when God made you into a girl, he had two little boys on his mind.  He thought, I want to make two very good brothers, so I need to make their mommy now.'"

Just when I think he's not listening, he drops a nugget like that in my lap.

You are right, sweet Tuck.  When God made me, he was thinking about you.

Isn't it amazing when you consider that half of your boys was already inside that baby girl?! So yes, Tucker is right~ God was already thinking of him. :)
It blows me away~ as the mother of all girls~ to realize that, as I carried my daughter, I was also carrying my grandson's mom and half of him. Oh, how miraculous are God's works. :)
