That's What I Get For Joking About It

A couple months ago, I posted our big "announcement" about CJ and Liam getting their cochlear implants soon. I wrote the post to sound as if I were announcing a pregnancy. Ha! We were pretty done with having kids, so it seemed funny at the time.

Shortly after that, I prayed for patience.  Do you know what happens when you joke about being pregnant and then pray for patience?  You get PREGNANT!  Yep. That's right. Knocked up. That's me.  We've known for about a month now, but I wanted to be cautious in sharing until I saw a heartbeat for myself on the ultrasound screen.   Today we saw a very healthy little gummy bear-lookin' thing on the screen with a good, strong hb.  So, there you go. That's a big announcement that's no joke.

Ninja Monkey Attack!

I know it's been ages since I've updated the blog, but that's because I have so much to say and so little time to say it.  That, and well...that's really the only excuse I have.  I promise BIG and EXCITING updates on Friday.  Promise.  I think...

Anyway, moving on to today's blog post.  Ninja Monkey Attacks!  It seems they're rampant in our kids' schools and things are going missing all over the place, particularly Rachel's lunch box.  She keeps forgetting to ask to check lost and found, so I sent her teacher an e-mail to remind her.  I'm hoping it works.  Tell me what you think.  Here it is:

Mrs. F:

It would appear that Rachel has been attacked by ninja monkeys on her way back from the cafeteria to the classroom. It seems that the only thing they wanted was her pink Hello Kitty lunchbox.  Since they're monkeys, I can only assume they wanted the food inside and then promptly placed the lunchbox lovingly in the lost and found box.  Rachel keeps forgetting to ask to check in lost and found so is instead forced to suffer the shame and humiliation of carrying her brother's old Spider Man lunchbox.  The horror!  Can you please remind her to look for her lunchbox tomorrow?  It is clearly labelled with her name.

Thanks so much!
