In the summer of 2015, we decided it was time to expand the family. Not by adding another cat or a dog ( as much as I want a dog ) but adding a little human being. It was a scary and exciting decision to make. August thru November went on as they usually do – lots of high school girls practices and subbing for a math teacher at the school.
All that changed the week of Thanksgiving 2015. It was the week after the Michigan Girls High School State Meet for swimming/diving and the worst winter storm I had driven through. That Monday we found out that we were expecting a bundle of joy around the end of July 2016.
That week ended up being the hardest we had because my dear husband’s parent were coming for the Thanksgiving weekend. AHHH!!! We had to keep our little secret since we planned to wait until our 10 week check-up to let our families know. It was very difficult weekend with not drink any alcoholic drinks and hide the fact that I wanted to sleep all the time.
We thought the secret was safe until when we did reveal the secret to our families, his mom let us know that she suspected something that weekend. It might have been the no drinking or the fact that when we went Black Friday shopping I bought some baby clothes for “our friends” who just had a baby.
