When I had gone to Rite Aid earlier in the morning, I had bought a card that had a picture of a martini on the front. On the inside, I wrote, "You might be needing a drink because you're going to be a grandma!"
My mom read it and was like, "What? Is this real???" (Apparently everyone thinks I'm some elaborate prankster who goes around making fake pregnancy tests and tells people they're going to be a grandparent as a joke.) My dad just kept saying "Oh God...I'm not ready for this." and my sister was like, "YES!!!! This is so awesome!!"
Later, my dad said to LoLo, "Wow LoLo, guess you've been pretty busy." Yep, thanks, P-Dids. Way to make it super awkward.
The next day was New Years Eve and somehow, we had agreed to have the party at our house. I had planned to just buy a bunch of frozen wings and some chips and dip and call it a day anyways, but then when I couldn't stay awake for longer than 10 minutes, it seemed like an even better idea.
Enter my sister. Party planning queen. (Seriously, check out her blog section on parties!) She and my mother showed up at our house with tons of snacks, cupcake mix, champagne and juice to make punch, decorations, and even party tiaras. My sister used a silver foil table cloth and made a runner out of wrapping paper. This party was officially taken to a whole 'nother level and laying on the couch was absolutely not an option. I pushed through to help clean the house (even though LoLo and my sister did a lot of it), make cupcakes, and make guacamole.
