A couple weeks back, I blogged about this awesome double jogging stroller that I came across. In that moment, I was merely thinking of the future and analyzing the options. This did stir up a little interest from others in whether or not we were expecting. NO! I said.
A little later on in the day, I visited our local 99 cent store for the first time. This store is much bigger than I had expected and had many products I would use. I remembered hearing about these dollar stores carrying pregnancy tests and had always wondered how well they actually worked when most other tests cost around $10. It then came to me that I was 'late'. Now, the reason it took me so long to realize this is that I had breastfed for 6 months, therefore I had not had my friend until the 7th month after she was born. So, I was not used to expecting my friend. (Sorry for the details, but you're reading)
I scurried around to find the tests and purchased two, along with cupcake mix and frosting. When I got home I used one test and it immediatley showed two pink lines. Not believing it I took the other. Same result. In shock, I loaded Madison up and sped over to the commisarry to buy a 'more reliable' ($10) test. I could hardly wait to get back home. I took the tests (yes, both of them for extra measure) and our pregnancy was confirmed.
Our 8 month old daughter is going to have a little brother or sister. I am definetly not going back to work now. And I will officially be chasing a 16 month old around the house while nursing a newborn. Here we go!
This is what I had prepared for my Husband as he arrived home for work. He almost ate them before reading them!
