I'm getting ready to leave for two weeks tomorrow to visit my family in the States. My sister already knows I'm pregnant. I told her a while ago. She's had two miscarriages and has given up on having kids. I wanted her to know before we show up. I didn't want to surprise her like I plan to do with my mom. We're going camping with her and her husband, then spending the rest of the trip at my parent's house. Traveling is so stressful. We can't afford to travel as a family, so I'm on my own. And DD has been pretty ornery lately.
Poor DD was so exhausted when I picked her up from school and went to the grocery (to get snacks for our flight tomorrow) that she started crying by the time we got home and asked to have a nap before having lunch. Usually this is the kid who always asks to skip nap time. I was shocked.
