If I would have continued to record, my mom said, "There ain't no way! I know you..I know you!" Apparently she thought the little girl she heard on the porch was a random neighbor child wanting to sell her something.
We (my brother, Jon and I) took bets on how my mom would respond. Jon was a little dramatic as he predicted she would pee on herself and then pass out. My brother and I thought she would cry.
and cry she did. We had a great time pulling off the surprise and spending time with family. I think I was a bit insane to travel 32 weeks pregnant with a toddler all by myself. Needless to say, I am feeling the oxymoron of vacation--I still need more rest!
