Friday, December 10


So, I'm 10w4d pregnant today. BUT in addition to being told that I had a big belly by my kiddo last week... this week I have been asked by several kiddos if I am pregnant. So I had to bite the bullet and email parents because I knew questions would start popping up. And once they do, all the parents want to know is what is going to happen to the class, when I'll leave, when I'll be back, if their kids will still go to Harvard, blah blah blah.

Anyways, two of my favorite parents emailed me back right away.

One told me that she was going to talk to me today anyways... because she just found out she is pregnant WITH TRIPLETS! (I so want to ask if it was IUI or IVF, but I know I hate those questions so I will hold my tongue!)

The other mom emailed me and wrote "Brett knows that you had previously had two babies and God needed to keep one with him, so he will be thrilled!"

Is there any better way to explain it? It just seems like such a perfect way to explain it to a 5 year old.

Nice comments. :) Your kids sound sweet, as do their parents.

Funny, the other day we were having our pellet stove cleaned and the twins woke up. As I walked them into the kitchen to start lunch, the stove guy says "Hey, twins! Natural or not?" To this day, I'm still surprised when people ask that out of the blue. I was so close to saying "OMG- you're a man! Circumcised or not?"

What a beautiful response. And I agree. . . the perfect way to explain it. :)
