Jed and I sat down to dinner with the kids last week with the intention of telling them something important.

Jed: Mom and I are going to tell you something about our family.  I'll give you three guesses what it is, and if you get it right, I'll get you a Slurpee.  If you don't get it right, I might get you a Slurpee.  Parley, you guess first.
Parley:  We have to clean the basement?
Jed:  Uh, no.  Hazel, your turn.  Think about something that might affect our family that mom and I might want to tell you.
Hazel: (looking around, hesitating, doubting)  Uh, mom's going to have a baby?
Julian: (interrupting and laughing) NO!  We already have a baby!
Jed:  Well, Hazel is right. Hazel just earned you guys a Slurpee.  Mom is going to have a baby!

Parley: Why?
Jed: Just because.


Jayne: So is anyone excited?
Hazel: I am.
Julian: I am.
Parley:  Uh, 75%.

I am so happy. I usually look at your blog to see if you update and I didn't for a few days and I missed this exciting NEWS!!!!
I feel stupid because you told me at church and I wish I could have said something to you first.
I am so happy for you guys.
