What on earth could I say
"Is all of that candy?" he asked
Ok I didn't want him to think that I spent $40 on candy!
"Oh, no. I had to buy kleenexes and I was running out of "girly" things."
That's it men always get uncomfortable when you talk about "girly" things.
He didn't question me any further and off I went to get little man up and moving.
That was close.
I was getting little man ready when hubby walked into the bathroom to brush his teeth.
From the bathroom with a toothbrush in his mouth I heard..
"Monica did you take a pregnancy test?"
What, how did he know?
"Nooo, why?" still trying to keep it a surprise.
"There's a wrapper in the drawer. It was sitting right next to my toothbrush"
OH, NO! When trying to get rid of the evidence in such a hurry I put the wrapper in the drawer. I honestly don't even remember putting it in the drawer, I was in such a hurry. I just knew I couldn't put it in the trash can because there was no other trash in there and I was afraid he'd see it. But the DRAWER what was I thinking?! Pregnancy brain was already in full swing!
"That must be from a past test." I said.
That's it I knew I wouldn't be able to keep it any longer.
I went in little man's closet and pulled out his "Big Bro" shirt I had bought in early December when I was pregnant with my last pregnancy. (yes before a big blogger announced it the same way) I put it on him and walked into the bedroom.
He looked at little man and was confused. He thought maybe I just needed to do laundry.
So I went into the bathroom and got the test and let little man hand it to daddy.
Hubby was so excited and over come with emotion.
"Is this real? Really?" with a big smile on his face!
Yes, I can't fake the pregnant word on the test.
"Yes, yes this is real and this is why I spent $40 at CVS"
He hugged me and we prayed that the Lord would bless us with a healthy baby in 9 months.
I have yet to give hubby a big surprise. Oh well, there's always next time. ;)
