Sweet Surrender

"The life I've left behind me / is a cold room / And sweet surrender / is all that I have to give"

Scene from Evermans in Canada, Season 3, Episode 70, "What? Nuh-uh.":

Cookie wakes up a few minutes before the alarm rings and goes to the bathroom to pee. It is the day that her period is due, but she has been waking up nauseated for a week and her body is not acting the way it usually does at this time. Just for giggles, she decides to take a pregnancy test. She finishes up and blithely leaves the stick on the counter. She goes back to bed.

When the alarm clock goes off, Dusty wakes up and goes to the bathroom to pee. There is an audible pause in the activities and Dusty comes back to the bedroom, looking wide awake and incredulous. He is holding the stick. He sits on the bed next to Cookie.

Dusty: Um, honey, this is a pregnancy test, right?

Cookie: [yawn] Yeah.

Dusty: There are two lines.

Cookie: [sits up in bed] What? Nuh-uh.

Dusty: There are two pink lines. See? [hands the stick over]

Cookie: Well, holy crap. We're going to have a baby.

Giant grins spread across two sleep-marked faces. Then Dusty jumps back into bed with Cookie. They pull the covers up to their noses, giggly and giddy as two kids who've woken up too early on Christmas morning. They turn to face each other, but nobody says anything for a few moments. Neither of them wants to break the spell. But then...

Dusty: Holy crap! We're going to have a baby!

Both: HEE!

Today marks 14 weeks of gestation for our wee beastie and everything so far has checked out just dandy. We are ecstatic about our healthy lil' wiggler. So, um, does this officially make me a mommy blogger?
