I have to say I think my mom had the best reaction to the big news (although Maureen comes in at a close second).
We decided to tell the fam when we were around 10 weeks along. I wanted to make sure we went to the doctor and actually saw the little peanut before we got everyone excited.
We had dinner plans with my parents and I told them we would pick them up and drive them to the restaurant. We brought a key contributor to our plan:
We walked into my parent's house, Diddy leading the way. My mom was sitting at the counter and was clearly annoyed when she saw Diddy.
"Why is the dog here?"
I told her to read his cute shirt (I cannot believe she did not notice this shirt right off the bat since she is always trying to get Ryan and I to dress up our innocent animal).
She reads the shirt and quizzically looks at us:
"You are getting another dog?"
Seconds tick by and I could literally see her brain putting all the pieces together.
And then there was screaming.
I cried, she cried.
