I know the title of this post is a little odd….Mother’s Day?? This is JULY. Why am I talking about Mother’s Day?
Well there was something that happened on Mother’s Day but I was sworn to secrecy. I didn’t maintain that on a personal level but I did what I promised on the blog level. On the personal level, the secret revealed itself so I didn’t completely blow that.
As for the secret I can now share, Kayla gave me this card….
Open it up…no words. Just these safety pins glued into place.
For those of you who don’t know, Kayla’s last name is Pins. She often makes reference to pins of all sorts…rolling pins, bobby pins, stick pins, safety pins. So this is a reference to her.
Did you get it??? If you didn’t, here’s the secret…..
Kayla and Spencer and expecting!!! She told us then but was only a little way along and wanted to be sure. They had been trying for a bit and she was nervous about it all….so we didn’t tell.
But…Kayla has ended up telling others…or rather her actions have. She has been SICK. UGH. I feel so bad for her. We’re hoping now that she’s getting closer to the end of the first trimester, she’ll get past it.
When she told Kramer and I…I don’t know that I’ve seen Kramer so happy…definitely he was the most affectionate. I’ll always remember his words and the huge hug he gave her.
Kayla was very apologetic that she thought it was all terrible timing and that our family didn’t need another thing just then. We both told her WRONG. We did and do still need another thing. We need to see that life does go on and the circle of life continues filled with sadness and with JOY!!
So look for a baby announcement in January. Kramer grandchild #6 should be arriving about then. In the meantime, let’s hope Kayla can get feeling better. I’m a little afraid she’s going down the same road Kelli did with Georgia. Thankfully the baby growing process is only 9 months!!
So that’s why I am telling you about my Mother’s Day now. I was suppose to keep it a secret and had to promise not to tell all of you until July.
