Super Secret News - AND I MEAN IT!!!


Here's the skinny sports fans. I'm home from OCS after completion of phase one (of three) to get my knee healed up a might. Sage gives me a present in a Macy's box, socks or something. So here's the picture. NOT ONE WORD TO ANYONE!!! Her side of the family is superstitious. Me, I have a hard time keeping a secret this good. Sorry for the ugly face, it's all I've got.

SERIOUS, DON'T CALL (about this), DON'T CONGRATULATE, NOTHING!!! I'll let you know when the coast is clear. Time in the oven? 2-5weeks.

And you mean you didn't even come to visit Brent and I to accomplish this goal? Yippy! I am excited for you!

somestratt said...

Of course....if you guys got busy while we were visiting you...

Grant Watson said...

It could easily have been the latter. Thanks for the visit!!!

Apache Watsons said...

are you sure it's more than two weeks?

abstowe said...

Whee Haw! Congratulations Grant!!! I surely hope this one is your little man child. Just think, then yours and Ben's can be friends! Is Sage oh, so excited,or is she too busy being sick?

Cindy said...

Hooray! Congrats to you both!

Grant Watson said...

Just a caveat (in the great tradition of the military usage of the word caveat) Sage doesn't blog much, so the blog is safe-ish.
Second, she was going to wait until I got back in March to tell me but since I'm back early, I got the news. We are both (me especially) excited. She didn't know if I would be or not, but girl or boy, I love the kids and believe whole-heartedly that the Good Lord sends them when you need them, unless you're a high school student or a crack whore, in which case they come like bullets out of the machine gun. Sad. Anyway. She thinks 2 - 5 weeks because 5 is the last period and 2 is when I left. Realistically it's when the fertility Shaman (plural) Brent and Laila stopped by. She's two weeks into her Nutri-system with aerobics so if she keeps that up, hopefully we'll have no toxemia or close calls with this one.

somestratt said...

Wow, Brent and I are Shaman. I somehow feel different today, almost holy!!! See, that is why Brent says that I am better about birth control than a priest. When you are a fertility Shaman you can't take ANY chances! PS The dr.s will say she is 5 weeks. They always count from the last period, so go ahead and start using that number. And believe it or not, 5 weeks ago is withing hours of our family party, and even closer to gracing your house with our fertility presences! This is really fun! I guess if you aren't planning and adding to your family size just make sure to practice abstinence for the month before and after our visits! We'll try to give everyone that much forewarning!

abstowe said...

Sheesh,
Maybe I'd better take a test because you all stayed here too! Yikers

Jeremy and Maria said...

CONGRATS GRANT!!!!!! Couldnt be happier for you man!!!!!

Also LAI!!!! way to go with that..... getting your sybs.... pregnant thing... If its all the same.... I won't be visiting.... for a while.... and you should avoid rexburg.... tooo..... We got... Consumption here... very contagious... wouldnt want you to... catch it.

somestratt said...

Jeremy, are you serious about the consumption, or just trying to scare me off?

AmShaZam said...

Ha, ha! Funny, Jeremy. And HUGE congratulations to you, Grant and Sage! Although I promise to keep my mouth shut about it. So, Brent and Laila were at our house, too- but I don't know if their presense worked over here.

abstowe said...

Amber
Does that mean you are waiting to find out????
You have to be very careful what you say around us pregnant-happy women!

abstowe said...

I do have to say, knowing that things seem a lot funnier when I am this tired -
I think it's funny that our family now has this GREAT secret!!! We're keeping secret (from Sage) the fact that SAGE is pregnant!
Bob and I have really done well to keep some of our pregnancies secret (ie. girl's night out 20 week - Does this baby make me look fat tee shirt), but we have never been successful at keeping the news from ME!!!

Sam.. and Emily said...

Andra, we'll see about keeping the next secret from you.
Congratulations, Grant. Take care of them ladies.
and Jeremy... get well soon.

and Laila, come to Rexburg any time. Just realize that we have a 2 foot deep path through the snow to our door, and it's been -37 degrees with the wind chill here for in the past week.
much love,
sam

somestratt said...

Sam, I think I will stay in my warm and balmy Philly where we stay at near +35, I am sure it is less than that with wind chill. However, since I don't think either you are Jeremy are needing help requiring fertilization shaman, again, I will stay put. Even in the summer your part of the country is too cold for me! Andra, that is funny that we are keeping a secret about sages pregnancy from sage! Hilarious.

Cindy said...

LOL Andra!!

Jeremy and Maria said...

Yah It's FREAKING REDICULOUS in rexburg. ... Great times with Maria however.

Nathan & Margaret said...

Seriously amazing bro! Im so happy for you. Yippee!!!!! I think your picture was super clandestine and very cute!

Apache Watsons said...

The plural for shaman is shamans, but I think we'll use Shamani for yous guys. Shi-man-ee, or shoe-man-eye. It'll have to be put to a famiree vote.
With any luck, Grant you can get twin boys, but that might kill Sage. Course, mom was only 5 fo.
Anywho's, I am totally McStoked for you.
