On Monday, a friend and I went out to celebrate our recent birthdays. Brian watched the kids. We were gone for three hours. It was wonderful for us. The kids had fun playing with dad. Ami apparently learned how to swing a baseball bat and did really well.
While we were out, I also managed to organize a little birthday gift for Brian. I decided to give it to him early, because I couldn't wait to give it to him on November 7th.
He opened the gift bag and took out the candy bar and wasn't overly excited. I told him to look at the candy bar very closely. Taped to it was a skinny Malawian pregnancy test, that had two definite lines across it.
His face was priceless, shock and exuberance all in one! What fun to be able to share this awesome news with the kids too. Ami is over the moon. Bradley doesn't think it can be true, because Mommy doesn't have a big tummy (well there is a medium tummy, but that's because of having kiddos like him :) Benjamin just says, "Baby, baby!" and has no clue.
Praise the Lord for the blessing of another child. We shall see a doctor in South Africa over the holidays. We have planned to go down to SA for Christmas and to attend our friends' wedding(Beth and Sybrand).
Go ahead...translate the title.
