I made it through a rehearsal process, a tech process and the run of a show and now I am preparing for the biggest gig of my life: Motherhood!
I found out I was pregnant early in the rehearsal process for Grease and it was hard to not tell other people. I had my moments of “morning sickness”, which happened at all hours of the day but overall I felt good.
*pt* was out of town when I found out and I knew I wouldn’t be able to keep the big secret from him for very long so I decided to FaceTime him and show him his 2nd Wedding Anniversary gift.
First of all I lucked out because the traditional gift for the 2nd Anniversary is cotton—enter cotton onesie. The Peterbilt patch on it is because a few years ago we were driving somewhere and I saw a semi-truck had mud flaps that had this brand logo on it. The next thing I said was “Peterbilt… that’s what my babies are gonna be”. I knew immediately this would be a clever way to one day tell him I was pregnant. I searched online and found the patches. (I’ve had them for over a year)
Over the last few weeks we slowly told our immediate family and without surprise everyone is over the moon excited! We have lots to do to prepare but I hope to be able to continue using my list making skill to help us along the way.
Stay tuned for updates…
Cheers (with a kid friendly beverage of course) to the next stop in our Life Tour!
