But the only person who knew that answer with certainty was Tiniki Thomas, a friend of the parents-to-be. You see, the expectant couple had given Thomas the card that stated the child’s gender, and Thomas’ job was therefore to prepare the blue or pink surprise for the party.
And to reveal the momentous news, Thomas chose to place balloons inside a box. That way, when the lid was opened, the balloons would float up and share the couple’s joyous news with everyone. Thomas also decorated the container with giant pink and blue bows as well as the words “Boy or Girl?”
Ahead of the big reveal, however, dad-to-be Lavar could hardly contain himself. In fact, he almost opened the box before the party guests had even started their countdown. Angela stopped him in the nick of time, though, to give the guests the chance to build the anticipation.
