I explained how fun it would be to keep our little secret to ourselves. I explained why it was important to keep it hush, hush for a while (to let the baby grow since I'm only 1 month along.) My final words to Aidan after "pee stick" day, upon school drop-off : "Remember, it will be hard to keep it a secret but FUN!"
Here is the conversation after school. Dad: Aidan, did you tell anyone our secret? Aidan: I'm sorry Dad, I couldn't keep it in! Dad: Ok, who did ya tell? Aidan: Just Thad. Dad: Ok. Aidan: (long pause) And Jack. (long pause) And Connor. (long pause) And Nick. Vicky: Good grief, we HAVE TO call our parents.
My tip for the day: If it's a pretty important secret, don't tell your 8 year old!
