Crunchy Thoughts

The thoughts are crunchier here.

no longer alone with da secret

The Husband arrived home at 1:30 this morning. I was ever so glad to see him! It was another long night, then I ended up waking early again, so I had to rely on the interwebs to amuse me. Lydia eventually got up and her commotion with breakfast and gabbing eventually got The Husband out of bed.

I listened while The Husband told me about his week and all the stuff he learned. He had a great time. Eventually Lydia’s demands for the Ending of Breakfast became pretty loud so I passed along her ‘note’ to him. “Here,” I said, “Lydia got you a card.”

“Aww, how sweet,” he replied, and began to read.

I watched his face as he read Lydia’s words:


I am so glad you are home. I missed you very much.
Mommy told me a secret and to not tell anyone but you. She said I am going to be a big sister. I don’t know what that means, but I think I get to be the boss.

Love, Lydia

The Husband blinked, then looked at me. “Seriously?” he asked.

I nodded.

“Oh my God. Wow, another baby.” Then he grinned real big and gave me a hug.

“You want to know the funny part?” I asked. “I’m due June 23rd.” Then I started laughing.


The Husband is very excited indeed. I am just glad I am not the only one that knows anymore. That is quite a big secret to carry around for five days. The initial idea is to announce to family at Thanksgiving again, though we might do it before, I dunno.

Yay, I have someone to talk to about this! Ha ha ha ha ha!
