Becoming pregnant with my son was a big deal.
We had tried for several years and finally those 2 lines on that little stick showed up and we were in for the ride of our lives.
Our family and friends were excited about the big day and as it grew closer our anxiety mounted. It’s amazing how you have all that anxiety for nothing. My mom and sister were there to share the big event with us and I wouldn’t have had it any other way.
It was late at night, but I knew my friends at work would be eager to hear the news. We tried to come up with a fun way to tell them other than just the normal phone call. Thankfully, working at the 9-1-1 dispatch center you develop a relationship with some of the hospital personnel. Not to mention that our nurse was amazing.
So, when we were taking his footprints we went ahead and put his footprints on a spare piece of paper as well. Our nurse scanned in the paper and then emailed it to both of my co-workers along with all the stats.
We got so many messages about how neat it was to open up the email and see his little feet. We still have the paper too!
What was the best thing you even sent through email?
I am thankful this was never a conversation I had to have about either of my kids! 🙂
