Cat out of the bag….

ONE THING that I am really not good at other than telling a lie is keeping a secret.  The whole not being good at lying is NOT because I haven’t tried, it just takes too much work and my face gives me away EVERY. DAMN. TIME. so I gave up trying a long time ago. BUT……….

I do really, really, really TRY to keep secrets. 😦  hmmmm That sounds terrible!  I hate keeping secrets!!!

Can you tell I have a secret?  Or rather I have been trying to keep a secret for a couple months?!?!?!  This is not a BAD secret, in fact it’s really incredible news!!!  The problem is it wasn’t mine to tell……  UNTIL NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


but wait……………

there is more……………….



THING ONE IS PREGNANT WITH            TWINS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am going to be a GMA!!!!!!! ( or a granny, or a nanny, or a mimi, oh the possibilities are endless…)   But there it is…. My baby is having babies…and I couldn’t be more excited!!!!!

If you all can throw some GMA names my way, I would really appreciate it!!!!!

Oh wait ….Of course there is more to this story……

Remember in the first paragraph when I said I’m bad at keeping secrets?  I know some of you are like “no shit, you already told ME”….SHHHHH I would never do that , well except this one time….

So my kids godmother is named Wendy.  Unfortunately, we don’t see Wendy that much any more because our lives have taken different paths, but she is still very important to all of us.  I saw Wendy’s Green light come on Facebook the other day, and after about 2 seconds of thought, I figured it would be “safe to tell her”…….

I sent her a message the other day saying, “hey can you talk for a minute”?  She replied, “sure”.  “Ok calling now”

When she answered the phone…..

Wendy: Hey what’s up?

Grace: I have incredible news!!!!

Wendy: OMG Thing ONE is pregnant?!?!?

Grace:  YES!!!!!! But it’s even BETTER than that!!!!!!!!

Wendy:  OMG Twins?!?!?

Grace:  YES!!!!!!!!

Wendy:  Do they run in Z’s (her husbands) family?

Grace:  We didn’t know it, but apparently yes……

Next I hear her talking to someone else who then took the phone from her to talk to me….. ?!?!?!?  I hear… “Hi, Grace it’s Brandon aren’t you so excited to be a grandma?”

HUH?   Stunned silence on my part as my brain races to understand who the hell this Brandon is considering I only know one and this is not his voice.  I mutter out something silly like….

Grace: “hell yeah I’m excited, but how did you know?!?!?”  Remember it’s supposed to be a secret

Brandon:  “well she told my wife and I got to see the ultrasound picture”

At this point, I am frustrated that 1.  I know I am busted for telling the secret, and 2.  I still couldn’t figure out who the hell I was talking to so I reply a little bit snarky

Grace:  Well I got to go to the ultrasound! 😛 😛 😛

Then it dawns on me…. I DO know who Brandon is.   He is the officiant from Thing One and Z’s wedding in March!!!!  Oh shit, I am really busted…

Brandon puts Wendy back on the phone and we finished our conversation.  I can already hear the messenger alerts in my ear and I know that Thing One knows…..ut oh, I’m in trouble….

Thing One:  So now Wendy knows?

With the following screen shots attached…..

I swear you can’t make this shit up!  Brandon and Wendy don’t know each other, they live in completely different towns and just happened to be a swimming lessons with their two daughters.  What are the chances of that?!?!??!!?
