Conversations with The BoyPosted: November 23, 2010
*On the 49 Bus heading into town with The Boy*
Me: *looking at two little blonde girls…not in a creepy way* Wouldn’t it be weird if we had blonde kids?
The Boy: Not really. I was blonde when I was a kid.
Me: Yeah but you’ve dark hair now and I have black hair, so I think it would be really weird. I mean, if the nurse handed me a blonde baby, I’d be like, Who did I have an affair with?
The Boy: Ha!
Me: I just think that genetically it would be weird. My family are all black or dark haired ppl, most of your family are brunettes. Even if you had a recessive fair-haired gene, I don’t think I’d have one so black kicks ass!
The Boy: Yeah I suppose.
Me: They’d probably have your dark eyes too. I’m pretty sure brown is a dominant eye colour.
The Boy: *looks bemused*
Me: Leaving Cert Biology finally came in handy!
The Boy: Oh right.
Me: Hopefully they’d have your straight hair and not my fuzz!
The Boy: Well as long as they had your brains, I’d be happy.
Me: HA! Yeah right, you just pretty kids. Them having your looks would make you happy.
The Boy: *grins* Yeah.
Me: My brains and your looks -they’d be SUPER kids!
The Boy: Absolutely! I’d be so proud!
Me: ….you know we’re probably going to have really stupid hideous-looking tiny blonde children with blue eyes that keep running into walls, right?
The Boy: Ha, yeah.
Me: ….that’d be disappointing. All that being pregnant work for hideous-looking, stupid kids.
The Boy: God, yeah.
Me: What if we have hideous-looking kids!?
The Boy: Don’t worry, we can have a practice kid and if it turns out like that, we won’t have anymore.
Me: We can just adopt pretty babies?
The Boy: Yes we can *hugs Me*
