Gender assumptions and debates about bias aside, the cute story about one baby who asks another baby to say whether they're a girl or a boy is still funny. More so in this day and age when the answer would most likely have been either wrong or disputable!


Two babies were sitting in their cribs when one baby shouted to the other,

“Are you a little girl or a little boy?”

“I don’t know,” replied the other baby giggling.

“What do you mean, you don’t know?” said the first baby. “I'm a boy,” he said confidently.

“I mean, I don’t know how to tell the difference,” was the reply from the other crib.

“Well, I do,” said the first baby chuckling, “I’ll climb into your crib and find out.”

He carefully maneuvered himself into the other baby’s crib, then quickly disappeared beneath the blankets.


After a couple of minutes of tussling about, he resurfaced with a big grin on his face.

“You’re a little girl,” he said proudly.

“Wow! You’re ever so clever,” cooed the baby girl, “but how can you tell?”

“It’s quite easy really when you know what to look for,” replied the baby boy smugly,

“You see, you’ve got pink socks on and I’ve got blue ones.”

Shame on you if you thought this sweet little joke was going to be dirty! But if it gave you a giggle, share it with your friends!


And while the world continues to argue about gender conforming and how many X and Y chromosomes an athlete needs to be able to compete in a "Female" sport, gender reveal parties are still a major deal.

Tori and Zach Roloff of "Little People Big World" recently announced that they were expecting again after sharing pictures of their two-year-old son, Jackson, on his birthday.

With Jackson holding a pink and a blue balloon in the picture, the couple shared that they were expecting a little girl in November and that they were looking forward to the new addition.

Jackson's sweater had "Big Brother" written on it, and the little boy with dwarfism appeared to have enjoyed his birthday party, complete with a homemade cake.

Reflecting on his two years, his parents opened up about his growth and achieving his milestones, saying:

“He’s talking more, he’s mimicking more [and] he can understand more. … He’s just doing everything a little bit better lately.”

Well done, Jackson. You're going to be a great big brother!
