Today, Sweetheart and baby had their 20 week ultrasound. For those that know this magic number, it means that traditionally people find out the sex of the baby. Well, we've always been a bit contrarian in our views and decided not to find out the sex of our newest family member.
Here's the twist. Row, our 8 year old, had his heart set on wanting to know the sex of the baby. He even went as far as telling Mommy that Daddy could stay at home while he went with Mommy to the Doctor's office. Sweetheart really doesn't care on way or another, because she has her mind set that it is a boy just like the rest. We talked about it, and decided to let the ultrasound tech write the sex of the baby onto a piece of paper, then seal it in an envelope.
We sat Row and Red Ant [we couldn't leave him out] down at the dinner table, and told them that we had the sex of the baby in the envelope. They were allowed to go into their room, and open the envelope and Row could tell Red Ant, whether it was a little girl or a little boy since he can't read yet. They both had to agree to keep it a secret from everyone except themselves. They agreed, and went to their room.
Now, the make a guess comes into play for the readers. Do you think the boys will keep the secret from Sweetheart and myself, or spill the beans? I've opened a poll into the right hand corner, where you can vote.
Comments are also welcome and you can post your guess as well.

PS - We've also warned them about Aunt NICU Nurse trying to trick them into
telling her the answer! Sorry Rae Rae! I'll post if the beans are
