(As posted elsewhere, LOL)

My original plan was to keep it quiet until Thanksgiving, but I've been too sick w/ m/s to keep it under wraps that long. And recovering from this flu is torture since I can't take anything "good." So we asked everyone to get together tonight after trick-or-treating and the first thing my mom and MIL said was "are you pregnant?" Well, DUH, I "can't" be! I had a tubal! LOL. So I told them both we were planning to adopt twins after Christmas and that was the end of that. (Basically I told them something ridiculous right back in response). ;c) Anyway, b/c they both guessed baby I had to change my original "GRAYSON IS GOING TO BE A BIG BROTHER" plan. Since they know we're planning on building a house, I went with "WE ARE ADDING ON TO THE HOUSE IN JUNE BY TWO FEET." (My mom said "what are you doing, putting in a flower bed?" LOL). The game was a blank board and they took turns guessing letters and I had my 6yo put the letters up for them. Thank goodness they filled the whole board in and STILL didn't get it. They discussed pregnant a couple of different times but since I "couldn't be" they never formally guessed it and we just politely ignored the suggestion, LOL. Anyway, we eventually had to sort of tell them. They were all shocked and congratulatory. Everyone suggested DH form a different hobby while he told FIL that he failed at "the talk" since DH obviously doesn't know what causes it. LOL. It was fun! And the cat is out of the bag - bewildered, but no worse for the wear. Baby #6 is on the way! Here's the filled in game board.
