My cousin was in town and I had her over for dinner along with my mom and C. This is a cousin who stayed with me for a while after she left her jackass husband so we’re pretty close. During the time she was staying with me I was in the thinking stage of becoming a SMC so she knew the groundwork. I was waiting for her to come into town so I could tell her in person. Funny, she was chattering and looking around my home so much I could barely get a word in edgewise to tell her. She was the last one to be told and was so delighted.
This cousin is a very talented artist and right away wanted to paint Sweet Pea a “prayer chair”. These are little chairs she paints beautifully with scenes and scripture and the child is supposed to sit there during time out and “pray” but really it’s a decorative item. I had a child’s chair in my basement that I previously used as a plant stand and she took it with her. She’s extremely busy since the divorce with her regular job and trying to get a business off the ground so I’m not sure if she’ll really have time to paint it but I love that she offered and insisted on taking the chair with her.
Also, it’s now Face.Book official. I put it on my status this morning so truly the WORLD now knows. Even to the last person, I’ve been in awe of just how happy and excited a person can be for another. I’ve felt such love during this phase of revealing that I’m on my way to motherhood.
Now, I’ll have to go cold turkey to break my addiction to the shock and awe method of telling people I’m expecting and seeing the wonderful, excited, surprised reactions.
Can’t wait to see what the second trimester brings!
