I Have ANOTHER Secret
But, not to worry, I'm clearly not good at keeping secrets so the word is out: We're having a baby!
I feel like I can officially take the training wheels off of this blog. When you read blogs, as I do, you quickly realize that 95% of them are written by mommies. I'm surprised Blogger allowed me to sign up without having that prerequisite. And not that I plan on letting the mommi-ness completely take over the blog, but I'm afraid that somehow or another some mommy stories will creep their way in.
John and I had planned on children, but the plan was to wait a year or so. God had other plans I suppose. And who am I to question God's plan, but, He may have momentarily forgotten who He was dealing with here. Is He sure He wants us to be parents??
Regardless, it's gonna happen. And here are my plans for this pregnancy. Cause so far making plans has worked out so well for me, so why wouldn't these work out??
1. I am going to sail through pregnancy easy as pie. No sickness, no mood swings, and no sleep interference.
2. I am not going to get fat all over. Just a cute little basketball belly and that is all.
3. I am still going to abide by my clothing OCD-ness. No repeating of outfits within the same month.
4. People are still gonna wanna hang out with me. Right? right? hello, is anyone here? right???
(I must really like people mocking me because I continue to give them ammunition. )
Our family and friends know, and now the entire www knows. And here are some of my favorite responses received yet:
(from a friend whose girlfriend is pregnant): "Looks like there's something in the water." - Daniel
"Congratulations! We have a dd for the next 9 months!" - Drew B.
"Booooo. JK. Congrats."
to which I replied: "Boo is right, I just ruined my whole summer!"
and he replied: "Summer? Shit. More like the next 18 years." - from one of my very best friends, Matt. Such loving words.
So, here goes nothing...
