Lately many of you have been tweeting to me or emailing me asking when I'm finally going to reveal the secrets I hinted about a few posts ago. I've been trying to wait until what I deemed to be the right time, but the truth is that I'm not so good at keeping secrets. And, more importantly, when I have a secret from you guys I find it very hard to write about anything else. So this morning I just randomly decided that today is the day.
In the post, there were three secrets, so let’s start with the minor/less interesting ones.
The first is that I switched accounts at work, from the uber-intense auto client I was working on to a moderately-less intense CPG and personal care client. This is interesting to no one (including me), but it was a secret that I had to keep from my team and it was killing me.
The second is that my father was diagnosed with colon cancer. This is neither minor nor less interesting, but since my father has little to do with this blog and doesn’t even know it exists, I don’t imagine you’ll have much to say on the subject. For those of you who are concerned, he is having surgery this Tuesday August 7th and we believe he’ll be fine after that. But prayers are always welcome. We definitely need my dad around.
The last and best secret (that many of you have guessed or already know) is that I am pregnant. Or “bunned” as Mr. Max and I like to say (hence the picture in this post). I am three months along and due on Valentine’s day.
But I have one more secret for you that many of you don’t know: I found out yesterday that I am having twins! The story of how I came to discover that is hilarious and classic Max, but I have to get going to work today (babies need to eat!) so I will tell you another time.
I don’t know what will happen to this blog, but I know it won’t become all about mommies and babies. A friend suggested I turn it into a dirty mom sex blog, which I think is a great idea. But hopefully it will stay what it always has been – a place where the truth is told about life, dating, and relationships, with a little dose of the truth about pregnancy and motherhood thrown in.
And boy, do I have some things to say about pregnancy. There is some shit that happens that I had NO idea about. None.
But that’s another post for another day.
Now that I’ve unburdened myself, the volume of posts around here should increase. But thank you as always to those of you who haven’t given up on me and keep asking me to write more.
