Baby fever

Today, a little girl in my first grade class raised her hand. I was assuming it was to ask for help.
When I got over to her desk, she put her hand on my stomach and said, "You look like you're going to have a baby soon."
THANK GOD I'm actually pregnant, or I would have lost all confidence.
I told her yes, I'm having a baby.
Her face lit up and then she said, "Can I see it?"
I asked her if she meant my baby or my belly.
She insisted she wanted to see my baby...right now.
HAHA! Can you imagine? I just told her that it wasn't time to see the baby yet, and she asked me if I would bring it to class after I had it.
It was so weirdly cute, and totally made my day.

In a week and a half we will be finding out the sex of the baby. I can't wait. I'm trying so hard not to think about it constantly, so the time will go by faster, but it's so hard.

Kids say funny things. Hell, Bill Cosby made lots of money off of it.

Working with kids while being pregnant was seriously the best part about work for me. My kids would say and ask the cutest things!! You are really going to enjoy that.. Especially when you know what it is/have a name for the baby because then the kids start referring to the baby by name.. For example "is that cupcake for Olivia? Does olivia like her cupcake?".. Those were normal daily questions my kids would ask me about our baby hahaha. I can't wait to find out what you are having... Thats when it really starts to get fun :)

I remember when I was pregnant with Jackson, Olivia was SO excited. She was 2 and had a play kitchen- she'd try to shove plastic food in my belly button to feed the baby. :) Now Olivia and Jackson shove stuffed animals in their shirts and pretend to be pregnant. LOL.

I'm calling it: your kid will be a girl.

Either that or a boy.

I am so excited for you! My sister is pregnant as well, and she works as a supply teacher. Reminds me of the stories she tells me! :D
