I called my mom and told her I have a gift for her. She asked me if everything was okay and I told her yeah, I just have something for you. So I am going over to her house tomorrow at 6pm. I can't wait! She is going to be so excited! My hubby is going to make some yummy treats (cashew clusters and peanut butter cups) and I made this really cute card that has a poem in it from the baby. She is going to be in shock. This is going to be a really big deal because nobody is expecting it. We told everyone it would be at least another 3 years or so before we had kids... so this is going to be a surprise. Then after we tell my mom, we are going to head over to the in-laws and give them the gift too. My dad is going to come over to my house on Saturday. My relationship with my dad is a little different. He is still having kids himself with his really young wife (their youngest is just 1 year old)... so even though I know they will be excited for me and totally supportive- it isn't the same as it will be for my mom and my in-laws. So I think I will take a different approach with them and maybe just ask them how they feel about watching another kid once a week after I return to work and see what they say.
Anyway... an exciting weekend is in store for sure! I can't wait!
