From the Mouths of Babes

Jude: Mom, did you know that Grover is a bear?
Me: Uhh..I thought he was a monster.
Jude: Nope, just a bear.
Maddie: Mom, what is Ernie?
Me: Well, he's a person.
Maddie: I don't think so.
Me: Well, he's kind of a puppet person, so he's not quite human...he's more like, well, Bert.
Maddie: What's Bert?
Me: Uhhhh, I'm not quite sure.
Jude: Mom, Prairie Dawn is a dog, right?

Perhaps they're not benefiting as much from Sesame Street as I did.

For a moment there I thought you might be headed into a discussion on the "trendy-theory-of-the-moment" about what Bert and Ernie are . . .

Reminds me of the simpsons quote:

Lisa: Dad, what's a muppet?
Homer: well, it's not quite a mop, and it's not like a puppet, but man oh man hahaha. to answer your question I don't know.

So I take it by the lack of post that you are keeping the gender of this child a secret. I've been checking every day to find out but still nothing. I guess I will just have to wait...or you could just tell us.
