Mr. Siddle in his conservative and professional manner asked if we were sure we wanted to know the gender of the baby. For a moment I though he was being a bit facetious. That was only a fleeting thought since I knew his personality didn’t allow him such moments of frivolous behavior. We heard the wonderful words, “It’s a girl!” I smiled ear to ear as the “we told you so’s” swept rang out from the masculine side of the family. Chuck and I embraced and Joel just grinned at the very thought of having a little sister. Undoubtedly, his grinning was in part due to his being older but also his being award of how much fun he would have teasing her for years to come. It was a day we shall never forget!
