We've got 22 more days until we open the results of the "wee-wee or the hoo-ha appointment", as Michael from Michael's Surrogate Experience so hilariously put it in his recent post. While Michael does not want to know if he is having twin boys, twin girls, or one of each, we are waiting with baited breath to discover what awaits us on the other side (and as you can tell, so is Ashton Kutcher). As I mentioned before, we'll have several of the "uncles" here to celebrate on Christmas Day when we open the best present ever. Our surro said she's mailing two sets of gender reveal packages since the ultrasound is so close to Christmas Day. So we will receive instructions on which one to open, based on the visibility of the "hoo-ha" or the "weenie".
These two slang words for our private parts got me thinking (yes, once again, thinking...), "what will Bill and I call it?" Boy, girl, no matter what gender this baby is, we'll need to come up with a name for it. The biological names just will NOT do. Sorry. I grew up calling it something totally foreign to most everyone, except for our close childhood friends who heard it in our household. Since there were four brothers and one sister under one roof in my family, the male name for it was used much more often, which turned out to be "gogi" (prounounced go-gee). And since my parents really couldn't come up with a unique name, my sister's it was called a "gogette" (pronounced go-get). Don't ask me the origin of this word but I kind of laughed and shuddered at the same time when I stumbled upon the Korean delicacy bulgogi. Oh brother...literally.
So on day 22 of the Christmas countdown to the Big Baby Gender Reveal...what do you call it in your family, or what did you call it growing up? Inquiring minds (or at least two in Hawaii) want to know.
