For Once I Must Beat Shawn To The Punch...

so I've been keeping a very big secret for what seems like a very long time. A few months ago when everyone thought I had strep, I actually had my tubes untied. (gasp!) Yep, my eggo is prego. I'm pregnant! We decided to try and get Jensyn a sister, (or a baby brother) we really don't care. She knew there was one more! I just had to beat Shawn to the punch, because he's always the one to let the cat out of the bag, or I guess proclaim the bun in the oven! Ahhh. What a relief to have that secret out!

For one brief moment my mouth dropped open, and then I was all..."Shelby would NOT do that!" and then I remembered the day.
Good one. I read it while I was eating my lunch and I actually dropped my spoon.

You got me, too! You are so clever! Mind if I steal your idea? I've stolen your five a day, might as well steal this, too! Thanks for the dramatic heart-stopping news and then the laugh!

Shelby said...

go for it Maren! It is pretty funny!

Christy said...

That's a good one. I'm not sure how you could pass strep throat for getting tubes untied although I am sure Jensyn would love a sister. Happy April Fools!

Sarah said...

yeah so i read your blog, freaked out, tried to call my dad to tell him and he didnt answer so I called my mom next and told her, then she said
something to the effect of "uhhh sarah dont you know what day it is" and then i felt really dumb. Yeah, I am pretty gullible. But that was an awesome april fools trick. I kind of wish it was true though. You have darling kids and it would be fun to have a baby in the family :)

Shelby said...

Sarah, that's what you're for...you and Brandon get busy! I would LOVE to have a baby in the family, just not mine!!!!!

Holly said...

I'm so stupid...I hate April Fools Day. I was so excited! I was thinking of something so uplifting and awesome to say and then I'm reading everyones comments. I am a blonde!

Oh my word Shelby! You got your tubes untied?!*#! First of all I didn't know you could do that.
Second of all, when did you get it done? And third of all how many months pregnant are you?

And most importantly....
Congrats! That's such exciting news! You're such a good sweet mom and you love babies so much. You're gonna be an awsome mommy with a newborn.

I'm in shock! I can't believe it. I'm so excited for you. And a little jelous.... But mostly excited. I have to talk to you tomorrow!

Nancy fancy pants said...

DUDE! I read your post and made a comment before reading your other comments....

I just got it! You! That was a good one.

Dang. You would laugh if you could see how red my face is right now.

Blast! You're good.

Nancy fancy pants said...

And I'm gonna do the same post right now... the peeps in my family are gonna freak!
Cause they'll all believe me.

Chris said...

OH SHELBY I believed you for a minute. I thought why didn't she call me. I'm proof that it really can happen though. I would of been so happy for you. Good one Shelby.

Rachel said...

OK, I'm reading this late and YOU totally got me! Seriously, I gasps just like the rest of clan.
Guess we are all fools :)

Amy said...

you nut! i came over here today to tell you that i loved the pictures of you on kelly's blog. they capture you so well. you're really so beautiful Shelby. I hope you know that! all of the things that Kelly said about you probably embarrassed you so much and we know I don't know you very well but from what I do know, i agree with her. i'm glad i know you but sad you aren't closeby so i could get to know you better.
