They about fell out of their chairs when we told them. They're 12, 10, and 8, and our new one (now 4 days past due date!) was a surprise to us all! My eight-year-old daughter started shaking and crying. I tried to find out why she was so upset, but she said, "I'm not really upset, I'm just that surprised! I'm so surprised it made me cry!"
Since then, they have gotten more and more excited. They want to know what I've bought for the baby while they were at school, and love to look at the tiny clothes. They keep talking to my tummy saying "Go to the light, Go to the light!" My sons say they jump out of their chairs at school when the teacher's phone rings. They keep hoping it's about the baby. I keep promising this baby will be born soon. They've been waiting so long, they're starting to think I just eat too much pie.
