I know what you mean! My youngest (6) has always wanted a younger sibling. She loves babies to death. I had the hardest time not telling her yesterday when we were snuggling. She will be over the moon! But, like your DD, she will also tell everyone in sight
. She's been doing that about her older sister's illness--random total strangers at the airport, in restaurants, out on a walk. No way she'd be able to keep a baby a secret.
We aren't sure when we're going to tell. It's still so early (I'm only 13 dpo) that we'll probably wait a couple of weeks, at least. But I'm a terrible liar and not so comfortable with secrets, so I've told DH we have to tell the kids (and thus the whole world
) before they start asking why Mommy feels so sick, why Mommy's so tired, etc.
