Step 1: Make sure (with as many sticks as you need) that you are truly “with child”.
Step 2: Enlist the help of a couple of good secret keepers…that happen to be available on a day during the week (SO glad we know such awesome people)!
One who can take pictures, like lovely Whitney.
And another who can distract the husband and get him where he needs to be…like Jon here.
(Not suspicious at all…)
Step 3: Buy your supplies. I opted for pink and blue balloons and white shoe polish.
Step 4: Pick a spot that you are not likely to run into people you know…and that would make sense for your man to show up to. I had already set it up by mentioning that we should take our first munchkin to the park with her tricycle.
Step 5: Set it up- Wait- and Enjoy the Moment!
(I originally started with 12 balloons. However…the wind didn’t think that I needed them all…and I wound up with three. So a word of caution: Tie them well.)
We are so excited about this new adventure we are embarking upon. If one is fun, two must be double the fun!
(Oh. And whilst in the OB’s waiting room today, I found out I passed my Step 1 boards for med school…in case you were wondering.)
