When I found out I was pregnant with Violet I immediately snapped the photo to the left and then ran around the house alternately laughing and crying.
Then, hands shaking, mind racing, I rushed out to Barnes & Noble and bought What To Expect When You’re Expecting and taped the positive pregnancy test to the front. I wrapped it and waited until Serge got home from work to give him his gift.
I think he knew something was up when I started recording him opening a gift I decided to give him out of the blue. He cried, it was really sweet.
And then I accidentally deleted the video.
I found out I was pregnant with our second child the night before Father’s Day. I wrapped the positive test in a box and then wrapped it again, just to mess with him then presented it to him the next day as his Father’s Day gift. This timing was a happy accident as I had no idea what I was going to give him. Can’t really top making him a father a second time around on Father’s Day, can you?
This time I managed not to delete the video and he had no clue what was coming as it wasn’t really that weird for me to record him opening a Father’s Day gift.
