Well the verdict is in. My wife and I will have a son! We had a 3D ultrasound performed and the little guy had his legs crossed and pretended to be a little bashful at first, but soon revealed himself. It's unbelievable that I could make something like that. I can now breath easy as I was my family's only hope for continuing the Matthews name. That is now secure. It's breath-taking seeing your child on the screen for the first time. The essence of life.
As noted in prior posts, my wife had been mentally prepared for a girl for 17 weeks, so she was a little disappointed at first. She is now warming up to the idea of having a little laborer boy. Both sexes are exciting, just different. They can like different things and even the same things. It doesn't have to be so clear-cut with the gender stereotypes. Of course I'm not letting her play Barbies with my son, but if he wants to join the ballet later in life, fine. I'll no doubt put a football or a basketball in his hands any chance I get, but I'm going to try my best not to discourage the chap.
I can't wait to take my son to open houses and teach him at a young age how to sell. Business man in the making from the time he could walk. I'm going to put him in a matching collared shirt and slacks and a little clip-on tie. When people come in, he'll say, "Welcome folks, this four bed, two and half bath 2,458 sqft. exquisite home is perfect for entertaining. It features a large island, walk up bar, and.....wait for it.....icing on the cake....a built-in wine chiller!" Then, when the customers leave, he'll sit back on the rug say "goo goo gah gah" and stack his ABC blocks. Pro-style. This will of course start when he's 3 years old because that's when pros are made. Tiger Woods didn't learn golf at 14 years old! He was introduced to golf before the age of two! I'm going to have to teach him the necessary vocabulary from a young age. His first word will most likely be, "Sold." I'll need to get him some cool clothes and some mini penny loafers!
As you can tell I am very excited to have a boy. If it turned out it was a girl, I'd be fine with that too. I'd teach her how to say no to boys and wear baggy clothes from the day she's born. No, that's not fair. I'd take her to open houses too. You know why? Because Chris Matthews doesn't discriminate and any child he produces gets the 100% proven, Guide To Becoming Successful training program. Boy or girl, achieving the highest level of success will be pounded into their brains from the exiting of the womb. My wife will teach him Japanese by the time he is 3 years old, Korean before he reaches 5, Spanish before he is 7, Chinese before he is 9, and English by the the time he is 15. English is hard. He will be able to communicate with 75% of the world. Yes, he will be a polyglot (speaker of many languages), a neurosurgeon, and do some modeling in his free time, but he will know how to be humble. Matthews' don't brag or boast. We just state the obvious.
