Only for a moment I'm going to be selfish, and jealous and angry.


All through high school I always talked about how I wanted a redheaded little girl. I have pretty much all my life. My friends all thought it'd be cute, but then said they honestly didn't care.

I got my redhead. But she died. And since then several of my friends have had redheads. That they've gotten to take home.


Today, my friend Josh's wife had their third little girl. Their 2nd redhead. Now he's got two.


It's not fair! I don't know why it matters so much to me but I desperately wanted it and she DIED. And now I have to smile at my friends and pretend that I'm happy when really I just want to scream.


My friend Jared's wife is due with a little girl in February. He's got strawberry blonde hair, and she's got reddish highlights. If Allyston has red hair, I will scream. Out loud. Until my throat hurts.




It's not fair.

It's not fair. Go ahead and scream about it. You deserve to.

You never know, you might get your second red-headed child soon too.

I haven't allowed myself to hope for that. *sigh* I just knew Cora would have red hair. I told DH several times. I always sort of felt like she'd be my only.

No it's not fair. And you don't have to pretend it's okay here.

I really am glad River made it into the world safely. She was footling breech among other complications that required emergency csection.

But, dang it, did she have to have red hair?.

To add insult to injury, the friends that have had redheads so far are couples you wouldn't ever expect to have a redhead. You look at them and their families and thing "where on earth did THAT come from?" But I have red all over my family.... *sigh*
