My friends who I’ve shared with about this pregnancy have been patiently keeping our secret for about two months. So, I decided that it’s about time to out myself on Facebook. For no rhyme or reason, other than it’s a gorgeous day in Seattle, I chose to do it just a few minutes ago.
My message read: Around August 4, I will make my mom, @hername, a grandmother again! We’re halfway there and very excited!
I decided to make it fun for my mom too. It’s hysterical that she’s on Facebook, first of all! And, second, she says she’s on it to keep track of us kids and her grandkids – my sister has kids who are old enough to be on it.
It’s a relief to come “out” and to be able to share this fun news with all of our friends. It is also scary. What if something goes wrong between now and August 4? What if…? What if….?! I need to stop living in the what if and enjoy…so I’m going to enjoy this and go eat a girl scout cookie!
Happy Friday, friends!
