Matt and I planned a trip to California before we even found out we were pregnant. So imagine how excited we were when we found out we would get to tell our family in person and not over the phone!
We drove down, and arrived in Herald around 4PM, said our hello’s and unpacked the car. Then we waited for the perfect moment to sill the beans. Matt and I decided that as soon as any topic even slightly or remotely connected would be our opportunity.
We spent all evening catching up, eating and relaxing, and not a single oportunity presented itself. Finally, I wispered to Matt that he was going to have to bring it up some how.
While Matt, myself, Nancy and George were all relaxing in the living room, Matt spoke up, “So, are you guys going to have some vacation time in June?”. To which Nancy replied, “well I’m not teaching summer school this year, so yes I will have time off. And your Father will proabably have some vacation time to use. Why?”. So Matt informed them that if they were able to take some vacation time in June, they would probably be able to see the baby right after it’s born.
It took a few seconds for the information to sink in. Then there was jumping and hugging and “oh my gosh!” and “this is so wonderful!” and more hugging.
