|February 2003- with our new puppy, Emma|
Holy rusted metal, Batman. Right there in the middle of Kmart, I panicked. I ran to the pharmacy aisle (literally, I RAN!) and picked up a pregnancy test. For some dumb reason, I thought, I can't take this test home- Kamron will absolutely freak out when he sees me walk in the house with this! So I left my cart right there in the middle of the pregnancy test aisle, jetted through the checkout with my pregnancy test and made a beeline for the Kmart bathroom. I flung open the door to the bathroom and looked around. Gross does not even begin to describe it. It was one of the most disgusting public bathrooms I'd ever seen. I ripped the pregnancy test out of it's little box and tried to hover over it without touching anything. (In retrospect, I probably should have built a toilet paper nest, but hindsight is 20/20) That first drop of pee hit the stick. I swear, if that pregnancy test could talk it would have shouted right then, "HOLY MOTHER OF GOD! YOU ARE WAAAAAY PREGNANT!"
I looked at that little stick all pink and full of plusses and about passed out. Then a thought ran through my mind, "Wait, I'm not really pregnant. This test is just contaminated because this bathroom is so dirty." Cause- you know- pregnancy germs were just running amok and contaminating everything in the whole bathroom. So what did I do? I ran right out of the bathroom, picked up another pregnancy test, zoomed through the check out again and for some dumb reason, went right back to that same dirty, contaminated Kmart bathroom to do a repeat. (Yeah- I know. My reasoning was flawed, but dude. I was 22.) If test number two could talk, it would have screamed, "HOW STUPID ARE YOU??? YOU ARE REALLY GOOD AND PREGGERS!"
If you remember, I was terrified to even take a pregnancy test home, because I knew Kamron would freak out. For some reason, it did not occur to me that announcing said surprise pregnancy to my husband 3 hours later in front of all his friends and family would also maybe freak him out a little bit. But that is exactly what I did. I wrapped up that gross pee stick (why do we do this? It is so unsanitary and quite frankly a little nasty!) inside a baby bib (that I picked up on my way out of Kmart!). And I gave him that box to open in front of God and everyone. Instead of freaking out, that sweet hubby just looked at it dumbstruck, like, "I'm a grown man! Why in the hell do I need a bib?" But then his sister started screaming and hugging me and I think it finally sunk in.
I don't really remember what happened next, it is kind of a blur. There was lots of hugging, Kamron and I sitting on the front porch crying, and cake. That's all I remember. Oh- and there is this picture that Kamron's dad took of us on that night. If you look up "smiling through shock" this is the picture that pops up :-)
