SECRET ITS OUT
The kids at school today, guessed my secret...they guessed that I am pregnant! The staff already knew, but I hadn't told the kids yet. It was the last class of the day, grade 6. The girls were whispering and giggling. They said they needed to ask me a question, but they'd wait until later....weird, but I went with it. Eventually, they couldn't wait anymore, and one of them whispered in my ear, "Mme W, are you pregnant??" She stepped away from my ear giggling and squealing with anticipation. I must have blushed. I know I got all flustered and instinctively looked down at my tiny protuding tummy. I was wearin a purple dress with a black belt, but I guess it just didn't hide my secret. They said when i turned to the side, they could see my "baby bump." I had to admit that yes I was. They screamed and jumped up and down. They were sooo excited! Hugs went all around and even the boys were asking if I would bring the baby to school when it was born. I told the class that they were the first to know my big secret and that they could tell others. The bell rang and they stampeded out the door. It was the last class of the day and the halls were buzzing with students. By 3:05, the news had been spread and my classroom was filled with girls hugging me and giggling like crazy. It surprised me, how much fun it was sharing my news with my students, but the hugs and squeals were genuine and contagious!!! Some of the older girls were choked that I wouldn't be able to go on the French Trip to Quebec with them in May, which, in a weird kind of way, actually made me feel loved! :) Some of them mentioned that they also thought I was pregnant last week, but were afraid to say anything, incase I was just getting fat....LOL!
