that we were pregnant and are trying again soon.
Mom told Dad.
My cell phone rang a while ago and my heart dropped. It was my mom. She usually only calls (she's an email fan) when something is wrong so I've come to dread hearing her ring tone(Amazing Grace). I could tell in her voice she wasn't just calling to chit chat. She asked if I was home that she didn't want to interrupt if we were out doing something. I told her I was home, on the couch, watching tv(exciting huh? M says its the middle of the week and we're an old married couple where else would we be?). Mom then proceeded to ask how we were doing and all that jazz. I gave her my normal response that everything's fine to which she responded "hang on". Geesh...what is she up to? The next thing I hear is "Kimberly Sue. You're gonna get a whoopin'". Uh oh! It was Dad! Only he didn't have the "you're in deep do-do" voice but rather the "I don't know what to say" voice. His voice cracked when he said he was sorry that he wasn't able to share in our sorrow when it happened and how he wished he would have known while we were there visiting. In between our sniffles he said that we would be in his prayers and that he loved US.
He didn't scream and yell and disown me! He said he loved US!
So there you have it. Everyone who needs to know/we want to know....knows.
***I sent my mom an email after we hung up saying that I hope someday that her and Dad would be able to accept the decision that we've made to start a family. Here's her exact reply(Minus M's real name)
"I certainly accept what you and M are doing about a family. This is all new to Dad, I'm sure he'll love the idea too when it all sinks in. I told him you were going to try again later. Life will sure be a lot fuller when this all comes about! I'm very happy. Nobody could love a baby any more than you. And I'm sure M too. Now clear your mind and go to bed and go to sleep. Love you so much. Mom"
