Due to some technical difficulties that I will affectionately call life, this post is a LITTLE late, but I hope it’s just as entertaining.
Short recap: when I left off last week, Brad and I had just met in Lebanon in the midst of an ice storm because we were so full of EMOTIONS about this surprise pregnancy! Mostly, good emotions, but also some mixed ones because we’re still humans who were dealing with repercussions of our actions that lead to an unexpected life change! Yes, we’re responsible adults, but I still think its okay to go through the motions a little bit!
At this point, there are a few people in the “know”; I needed to get my life together before I could allow myself to go public about my pregnancy! Future hubby was now informed, my sister, and maybe a handful of my other close friends at the time. (I say at the time because I’m not so close or at all conversational with some of them now.) Next, we needed to informed were the grandparents to be!
I am the youngest of 4 with my eldest brother being TWENTY years older than me. Wild right?! Yeah, so he had 2 kids that are the same age and my sister and myself; consequently my mom has been raising us and her grandchildren side by side. My youngest niece was about 9 at the time of all of this, and my mom was ready for another grandbaby. My sister isn’t having any kids, if you knew her, you’d understand why..she’s not exactly child friendly. Much improved since the birth of my daughter, but ridiculous nevertheless. So my mom was depending on me for a baby and despite my being on birth control, she regular accused me of being pregnant. Soooooooo all I had to do was get her to do that, which was hilariously easy.
