Last Friday I told my students that I was pregnant. I told them I was going to teach them how to play a game to work on spelling (hangman). The phrase was "I am having a baby". Both classes read the sentence and looked surprised. I explained to them it was going to be awhile and I was going to have my baby at the end of February. One didn't understand why I was going to be out for a few weeks at the end of February after having my baby. Just like with Drew, I had my students guess what they thought I was having. They all signed a poster and we kept it up until I told them.
We found out what we were having Monday afternoon. We then went to dinner with some friends that insisted on finding out together and couldn't wait until I figured out how to tell them. I had some ideas but gave in to the idea of a dinner. As much as I love throwing parties for others, putting something together for myself was weird to me. Plus, our schedules are really busy and we just couldn't plan anything elaborate. I had a sweet friend plan the location and it worked out great. Very low key but fun as always.
Jason and I came up with the idea of making scratch offs for everybody to find out on their on. I wanted to do something different then what most do. All but three people guessed girl.
I then had dinner with some co-workers Thursday night and all but one thought it was a girl. They scratched off the answer to see what we were having.
I finally got to tell my students on Friday. The class was so anxious to find out and just couldn't wait any longer. I told them what I was having and the ones that guessed correctly were so excited. One little girl told me that she told her sister on the phone who's in college that I was having a baby and her big sister guessed a boy.
So for the reveal...we are having a .....
Drew is going to have a baby brother. Camden Lee Cate will make his debut around February 24th. We are so excited and can't wait to meet him!
