THEIR Bad Mother

September 24, 2007

(It’s early days, but I’m sharing anyway. Because so many of you figured out that my anniversary message to my husband was coded. Also, because it’s all that I can think about, and how am I not supposed to write about it? Also, because our realtor knows, and if he knows, why shouldn’t you?)

    Will you be changing the name of your blog to TheirBadMother????

    Congratulations!

    Robin September 24, 2007 at 4:16 pm

    Congratulations! My very best wishes for a happy, healthy, uneventful 9 months. And just to show I mean it, I won’t even tell you my “second child born in car” story.

    okay – now it’s time for me to confess. i stumbled on your blog awhile ago but was never sure how to tell you as i felt like i was tip toeing around in places where i hadn’t been invited. and well, i hadn’t been invited. that, of course, has not stopped me from being an avid reader and huge fan of your written work. i’m obsessed really…but not in a weird stalker sort of way…more a friendly, curious, wow – i wish i could express myslef that way, sort of stalker.

    whole-hearted congratulations from your neighbours across the street! i don’t think we’ll be far behind you, although we won’t know for another week yet!

    god, i REALLY REALLY hope this doesn’t totally weird you out and make you not want to say hello on the street! :) or like, move your blog to a new address to hide.

    – S, M and Mister Jakob

    As I say sometimes to PunditGirl, “You’re a sneaky pete!” I had a feeling there was something more going on there — congratulations!! :)

    flutter September 24, 2007 at 4:25 pm

    Um yeah, I figured we three + was a message, but I don’t know you well enough to call you out :) congrats to you

    Laural Dawn September 24, 2007 at 4:30 pm

    Wow!!!
    Congratulations!!! I’m so excited for you.

    PS on a totally selfish note – I’m pregnant too – and beyond excited to know that you’ll be blogging about it and I won’t feel so alone. (I’m already scared)

    Jenifer September 24, 2007 at 4:35 pm

    Totally figured it out, but you know I didn’t want to say anything!

    Congrats! I am definitely feeling the urge….

    Miscellaneous-Mum September 24, 2007 at 4:35 pm

    Congratulations :) I am so happy for you. Wishing you a safe and happy time x

    verybadcat September 24, 2007 at 4:36 pm

    Wahoo! :) I just thought that I was too hungover to “get it” when I read yesterday’s post. I knew I was missing something… important… but it was beyond me.

    Their Bad Mother, huh? Wow….

    crazymumma September 24, 2007 at 4:47 pm

    I soooo did not figure out it was coded.

    I am so very happy for you.

    Um. Are you moving out of the West end? I think that needs to be discussed to see if it meets with the West End Girls Blogging Committee.

    ;)

    Kate September 24, 2007 at 4:47 pm

    Very cool.

    Take care of y’all. I hope to be right behind you.

    Congratulations congratulations congratulations! This is so fantastic for your family.

    And are you leaving the west end? We, too, are on the fence about that decision right now. Sigh.
