So this is my breaking the news to Dean story.
I can’t keep secrets from him. The moment I saw the blue positive sign, I ran out of the toilet to find him.
He saw my face and went, “What’s wrong? What’s wrong?!”
I held the stick, slightly shaking. “I think I’m pregnant.”
I have never seen Dean’s face make that expression that he did after that. It was slightly scary. For a second, he was tearing up in his eyes. Then the next second, he went, “Yes!! I’m da mannn!!!”
COMPLETELY DIFFERENT REACTION FROM MINE.
He carried me and hugged me so tight and he was grinning from ear to ear.
Suddenly the fear and concerns I had just melted slowly. I started feeling happy and I was thinking mannnn if this baby makes Dean so happy like this, think I’m going to be ok! I want to see him this happy all the time!!
But that only lasted for a few minutes.
When Dean went off to the shower and probably sang happy songs, I sat by myself and thought Oh man… but it’s the Mom that has to do all the hard work, right?
