i'm gonna tell you a story for flashback friday. a story involving valentine's day... two years ago. now we don't normally celebrate V day because my birthday is the following week and i'd rather save the money and sitter for that. but this particular year theMr surprised me by getting a sitter and taking me out. probably because i had been sick for a few weeks and i was acting like a crazy person. he knows when to turn on the charm. it's no coincidence he's managed to survive with me for 13 years. but i digress... so we went to dinner and a movie. unfortunately, i got motion sickness from the movie. i'm serious. how lame is that? so we're on the way home and i am trying not to retch in the car. we're discussing how sick i've been and both wondering if my mono from the year before has made a reappearance. this is the part when i mention how odd it is that i feel fine in the mornings and get progressively more ill throughout the day. now keep in mind that we are driving right now. theMr looks at me (in slow motion) and says "kind of like when you're pregnant?" O...M...G... uh, yeah, exactly like that. so he follows up with the very logical "when was your last period?" now remember, this is mid February... it was thanksgiving weekend. holy cow. not only am i pregnant, i'm three months pregnant. how do you know you already have too many kids? when you are so busy that you are in your second trimester before you realize you are pregnant. how did i miss this? i just about started hyperventilating. i went out the following morning and purchased a test which turned positive the second i peed on it. i sat and cried while theMr laughed like a crazy person. i swore we weren't telling anyone until i gave birth. i bargained with God for my sanity. and i got an Esme. good deal. well played sir, well played.
