I remember finding out the day I would be soon be a mother. The pregnancy test only had a single line. I had been feeling alittle off the whole week but that test just confirmed it was all in my head. Going about my day, I was cleaning my house before my husband got home when I went back in the bathroom to pick up the mess that I had previously made with all the paper wrappings of the products. As I picked up the test, I noticed that there was a second line up there, faint but visible. I guess I did not wait the whole few minutes before checking out of my own anxiousness. I was so excited to tell my husband that I looked up online  all the cute ways I could tell him. I settled with putting it in a jar and putting it in the fridge. When he got home, he never even looked in the frigde, he just went to change his clothes to work on his car. I kept asking if he needed anything from the fridge but sadly he didn't. My patience broke, and I told him we were expecting our first baby. His response, " hahah april fools, right?" My heart sank as it was not the response I was looking for. Also seeing how it was April 14th, my fear started to sink in. Were we not ready to have a baby? Was he not excited? Fast forward, when I talked to him about it, he said I just caught him off guard and he was not sure how to react except with a joke.

I look back and laugh because we were so young, I was only 20 and he was 21. Now we have three handsome boys who we love and are expecting another blessing later this year.  This painting was made in celebration of finding out we were expecting another baby and we are looking forward to having our family expand.
