Me: Hello
Caller: So can you tell me the secret?
Me: Hi Mom. No I can’t tell you the secret.
Me:I don’t care who you are- I’m not telling you the secret.
Mom: Is it what everyone is saying it is?
Me: I’m not saying a word. You’re just going to have to wait until Saturday.
Mom: It’s a baby boy, you’re having a baby and it’s a boy.
Me: I’m not saying a word.
Mom: Let me talk to Wal.
Me: He’s not home he’s at work
Mom: I can hear him in the background.
Me: That’s not Wal, that’s the television, Squidge is watching CBeebies.
Mom: I can hear him calling you a liar in the background.
Me: (laughing hysterically) I’m going to hang up now. I’m not telling you the secret and you can’t talk to Wal because he isn’t home.
Mom: hangs up on me
I fall to the floor laughing

Once I stop laughing I give Wal a call to tell him what just happened. We’re both having a good chuckle. He suddenly starts laughing even harder- my mother is on his other line!!!! She hung up before he had a chance to answer. I was expecting the phone call ever since I posted and she really didn’t disappoint.


I made some smoothies this morning for breakfast- to say that Squidge liked it would be an understatement.
