1 in 4

6:11 AM

Have you ever seen the commercial that claims that 1 in 4 American women can misread a pregnancy test?  Do you get as offended as I do?  I mean really, there's a line or there isn't, right?  Who needs their silly expensive digital test?  However, I must confess.  I've done it.  I am your 25%.  I fulfill the stupid part of that statistic.  In my defense, I took two tests of two different brands within a somewhat small time period and sillily (this is a hard word to say) assumed that the store-brand version of the test would show results in the same way that the name brand it imitates does.  Alas, I was wrong.  Therefore, many moons ago, I nervously told Wonderman he was going to be a daddy WAY before we were ready for that.  It was a good time to have read the test wrong.  However, the most recent time I took such a test, I carefully read the instructions that came with the test while I waited for it to . . .  develop(?-I'm not sure the appropriate term for a stick I just peed on).  This time I'm sure.  It's for real.  Now I've got a whole new slew of statistics to worry about.

Waiting for it to develop is the worst. I always hide it and then run far far away for the three minutes, plus I add a few extra minutes just in case.
Congratulations.

Motherhood statistics, huh? Hadn't thought about that. Lucky you! :)

Glad the whole world knows now and I can shout it from the roof-tops! Auntie Andrea to the rescue...even though I don't know what I'm rescuing yet.

p.s. Can you convince your kids that only their mother's sisters qualify as REAL aunts so I don't have any competition for "favorite" aunt? ;)

I'm glad to know that you are now a statistic. I will sleep easier at nights.

AAAAHHHHHH!!!! Imagine that in a shrill excited tone... I am so excited for you and daddy-to-be.... Glad I made it through the whole email about the growth, although part way through I had a thought of what it might be... Looks like you will be hanging with me while the great canoe excursion happens... Maybe we can convince your sis to hang with us too? She has to teach us her mad quilting skills. The best part, the H's must be most fertile in January...HAHAHA...Yay for the 19th-ish...(Sorry, I am not a great speller.)
