Truth be Told
This would have to be handled delicately. "I know! I'll tell them in the car!"
My daughters and a friend were all strapped in (a captive audience, if you will) and ready to go.
Three jaws hit the floormats when I announced, "Surprise I'm pregnant!"
Though this happened in 1994, I still remember it like it was yesterday...and I'm so very glad that I won't ever have to say those words again.
Folks have asked for the girls' reactions:
The older one would buy onesies and stuff and bring them home from college.
The younger one said, "Gross. Now people are going to know you had SEX! Yuck!"
And that's how The Boy's arrival was anticipated!
He's been the light of my life since 1995, and my greatest parenting challenge. Because of him, I've been privileged to learn all about special needs, and how best to search out the resources that are available. I've met some wonderful people (and a few stinkers) in our adventures.
Even he knows how rough he can be - when he was five, his Mother's Day card to me said, "Count your blessings, Mom - I could have been TWINS!"
