The Cat was Almost Let Out of the Bag

Jake came home from work yesterday with a bag from Last Chance. He had purchased some decor for our baby's nursery. When he pulled it out of the bag, he showed it to me and said "I got these for _________'s room", right in front of my mom. I stared at him to see if he realized what he had done, and he had, so he casually re-said his sentence, "I got these for Baby's room".

My mom's head was in the fridge during the whole conversation, and she didn't flinch when Jake said it, so we weren't sure if she heard and was just playing cool, or if she missed it completely due to the sounds of the fridge motor.

We decided that if she did hear, we'd just let the name go out into the open, but if not, our little game was still on. I approached her and asked if she heard, and she was completely shocked and disappointed that she hadn't. She was 3 feet away from it, but didn't catch it. Silly fridge.

Sorry everyone! Guess you'll just have to wait another 11 weeks.

I'm sure you could have found a real picture of Ethal in a bag couldn't you? I wish you weren't so lazy all the time. You act like your pregnant or something
