Today is Mother’s Day in the Arab world, and I thought it was the perfect time to let you in on the little secret that family Sunshine have been keeping under our belts (quite literally) for a few weeks now.
One day not so very long ago, I woke up and I just knew. I found an old, simple, two-line test that I had lying around in the back of a cupboard. Nervously, I gave it a go…negative. Hmmm. Two days later, I just could not shake that feeling, and instructed Mr Sunshine to go out and buy the fanciest, most expensive test he could get his hands on. “One that’s going to be 100% accurate!”, I called after him as he left the apartment.
This time, a digital X flashed up on the stick within seconds, and it was undeniable. I was most definitely pregnant with Baby Sunshine #2.
It’s been an emotional few weeks and I can’t wait to tell you all about it soon, but for now, on this very special day, I just wanted to express my extreme gratitude that somehow I’ve been given the most precious blessing in life; the gift of not just one beautiful child, but two.
We are quite literally walking on sunshine right now, and I can’t think of a better Mother’s Day present in all the world.
More in due course…
