Cool DH's Reaction

Here's how I told my best friend...

~Darrell was soooooooooooooooooooooooooo cute last night. He came home and took his dirty clothes straight to the laundry room. On his way he saw the balloons attached to a bag but had no clue what it was. He came into the room (I was sitting on the bed) and said "What are the balloons for?" He obviously didn't look at them too close. They were all "It's a Girl", "It's a Boy" balloons. I smiled and said "I lied to you". Confused he said, "What?".. "I said I lied to you". His eyes got big he looked at the balloons, looked at me, and said "What are you saying? Are we?" I started balling and said "We're having a baby!". He got all teary eyed. He couldn't believe it! He also couldn't believe that I managed to keep it from him twice before he came home. Heehee. He asked if I had told anyone and I said yes, but only 1 person. Of course he thought it was my mom. I said no that it was my Stacer and not to be mad. He wasn't. He was too much in shock.
 
He then asked cautiously, "What else do you know?" I told him we had to wait until our first appointment to know how many. He opened my gift then. Attached to the balloons was the Guide for Expecting Fathers. He just stared at it and repeated "Expecting Father".~

He's still in disbelief today!

That is such wonderful news. I really like the way you told him. Of course leave it to a man to not pay attention to the balloons
 
That's something my DH would do to.

I cannot tell you enough how happy I am for you. You definiely have to let us know how many little guys/gals are in there as soon as you find out.
