My not drinking any wine during her visit would have been a dead give-away, plus I'd been dying to tell her anyway.... so I had to create yet another reveal surprise.
Luckily, this one wasn't too hard to think up. My mom had text me on Monday morning to tell me that Kate Middleton was pregnant again! I knew that meant that my US Weekly would likely have tons of Royal Baby pregnancy coverage, and my mom always loves to catch up on her celeb gossip while visiting our house. So... Friday after school I got a little crafty and doctored a few mags with our own "Shocking News"!
Anyway, the plan was for Mason and I to be watching tv and hanging out in the living room and have these articles casually open on the coffee table while waiting for my mom to join us and notice them.
Unfortunately, she did not sit in her "usual" chair so I had to shift my eye gaze to the magazines to get her to look at them. Luckily, she took the bait! I was able to sneakily capture her reaction on film:
Pregnancy isn't the most fun thing in the world - but this part of it has been the best!
