While I was home alone for 3 WHOLE DAYS with the knowledge that I was indeed pregnant, I came up with a fun little way to surprise Greg with the news. He was in Tennessee with some guys working on the Clifford family cabin, and wouldn’t be home till Sunday afternoon. So in the meantime, I did a little internet search, and was surprisingly underwhelmed with the way people were telling their husbands. But I did find one idea that I thought would be fun. “Big brother” and “big sister” bandanas….for our dogs 🙂 I knew as soon as he walked in the door they would all three run to greet him, so what better way than to use them as the grand gesture?! So I dug through my stash of fabrics and picked out a blue, pink, and neutral pattern. I used a sharpie to decorate them- “big brother” for Jack and “big sister” for Sophie and Lily. I may have had a little fashion show with them Saturday… 😉
Sunday morning I went to church, sat next to my sister and brother-in-law (man, it was so hard to keep quiet!). Sunday afternoon I did some studying/napping waiting on Greg to get home. I was SO antsy! I couldn’t wait! I kept texting him trying to see when he’d be home. Finally, when I knew he was getting close, I excitedly watched for his car to drive down the road. The dogs had their bandanas on and I had my phone set to record a video. And here’s what happened….
