I've been full of gratitude for the past 15 weeks or so (since we found out we were having a baby.)  While it's been hard not to shout it from the rooftops (however, in my excitement, I may have let it slip a bit early at work) it's been really hard not to tell my students.  Especially when about two months ago, one of them sat down to tell me that she thought I'd be a really good mum (when I decided to have kids.)  Oooooh, I had to bite my tongue quite hard that day!

They make me crazy often sometimes but they are such loving, sweet, wonderful people.  They were so excited on Friday when I finally got to tell them that I was having a baby.  They were also full of questions... (Will the baby be dark or light when it comes out?  When you eat, is the baby eating too?  You mean you're pregnant NOW; AS IN RIGHT NOW?  Eeeew.  Do you know what you're having?  Would you be offended if we took bets if you were having a boy or a girl?  Are you going to knit for your baby?  What are you going to knit?)

I got lots of messages from parents to congratulate us today, but I was greeted with a present to say congrats.  Such a lovely start to the day.  

The card said: Tezneem and Baby... Dear Tez, Congratulations!  You will be the perfect mother.  Remember "****" is a great name for a girl!  Lots of love (hugs too), xoxoxox 
What can I say?  Just so grateful that I'm lucky enough to have such a caring class.

Thank you, Megan! We are very excited and looking forward to this brand new adventure!! :) (Also, restraining myself from going maternity clothes shopping on Asos!!)

Thank you, my dear knitting soul-friend!! Had to keep it off my blogs and those I read until my students were told... so wonderful to be able to share it now! :) Have to finish my soft toys for my friends so I can start my baby's knitting! :)
