I told my boss yesterday afternoon that I am pregnant.

Yes, I know, it's early, but I talk to him ALL the time, and he had already noticed that I was somehow "different" lately, so it just seemed like the easier thing to do.

The great thing is that his wife just recently gave birth to their second kid. So he's an expert on this having kids business.

His first (of what I am sure will be many) words of wisdom were:

"It's (having kids) all rainbows and gumdrops. But the gumdrops are made of spit up and the rainbows are the toxic glow of the diaper genie pail...but with the toxic fumes it all SEEMS like gumdrops and rainbows. That, and the lack of sleep."

Probably my favorite description of life with kids so far.

Also, his initial response to the words, "I'm pregnant" was "BABIES!!!" which made me think of this:


  1. I've never seen that commercial before! that was on regular tv? the lady stuffing office supplies up her shirt to appear prego was cracking me up!

  2. I never saw it on TV, but had come across it (thanks to little bro) a while back. I too, love wants to be prego lady.
