Stealing the Limelight

Today started out on a sad note. We had to take one of our pet rats, Indy, to the vet to be put down. We buried him under our tree and did some therapeutic landscaping to ease the loss. He was a good little guy and we'll miss him.

Luckily that's where the bad news ends. Trina is feeling more and more confident that she's pregnant. Her temp is still up and yesterday the smell of chocolate covered donuts made her stomach turn. Is it even possible that this is a pregnancy symptom? Who cares, it's fun to dream.

Last week when Trina and I were at the doctor's office waiting for the swimmers to prepare for their journey, I was texting back and forth with my kid brother. During our chat, he jokingly said that he was going to run out and get his girlfriend pregnant just to steal my spotlight. Well, today he called and when I didn't answer (we were at the vet) texted me "Call ASAP". I was a little worried and returned the call right away. "Remember when I was joking about knocking 'K' up?" They took 6 different kinds of home pregnancy tests. 4 of those tests came up positive including one that was 2 mos expired. The 2 they bought from the dollar store came up negative. Today they went to the doctor who confirmed that she's 4weeks pregnant. Note to self, no dollar store tests... :) I'm so excited for them and I'm glad our baby is going to have a cousin the same age. I told him that since we didn't live close, he needed to start a blog right away so I could keep up with all the news, big and small. Trina suggested he name the blog "Stealing the Limelight".

I can't imagine... stories of accidental pregnancies slay me.

I hope the symptoms keep going! You are half-way there.

And I'm sorry about your little guy. :(

I will never forget your story about buying Indy. You made his short life full. I told the kiddos and they were sad. [hugs to you both]
