A baby is born with a need to be loved - and never outgrows it.- Frank A. Clark
We found out that Mini-Chaos was on the way around the earlier possible time. I'm a by-the-book kind of person and figured as soon as found out that we would just wait until the recommended 12-week period to inform anyone else. Mrs.Chaos doesn't have the same philosophy on things - "it's like a present! You don't hide presents at home you give them to people!"
For this period of time from about 4-weeks to about 10-weeks every day was a bit of battle. "We have to tell someone!" "No, we're going to wait." "But I'm going to see my friends, and they're going to notice, so I'm going to have to tell them." "They aren't going to notice or ask." "Ohhh, I bet they will. The only way to keep this secret is just to not see any of my friends. Is that what you want? For me not to see my friends."
So thankfully we passed this period of not telling anyone and lifted the embargo - I mean, super lifted the embargo by posting to social network sites. Still, since it was such a stressful period of time of not telling anyone, now I still feel a little unsure. "Am I really allowed to tell people?" I know, I know. The answer is yes. Tell the world. It's like a present, and you have to give people presents!
