A Wonderful Surprise

On May 24th, I received a wonderful surprise!  A baby shower for our little Nolan.

Like most Tuesdays at work, there was a scheduled staff meeting from 3-4:30p.  I noticed that the meeting time was changed but I didn't think anything of it.  On Monday, I had to return to the doctor's for a potential kidney stone and she requested that I have a kidney ultrasound.  Of course, I couldn't get the ultrasound the same day, so I had to schedule it for Tuesday.  I told my manager I would be late on Tuesday and she acted sorta funny.  She normal wouldn't say much and basically tell me to come in whenever, but on Monday she was adamant that I return to work as soon as possible.  Again, I didn't pay much attention to it, but I did say something to my peers.  They played it off wonderfully.

So Tuesday came, I went to the doctors and came in around 10:30a.  The day progressed and nothing seems unusual.  I dialed into the staff meeting at 3:30p and even offered up so recognition.  Eventually my manager stated that she was coming upstairs to sit with us for the call, super odd, as she never does this.  Then when she arrived, she sat at my desk.  Of course, there was some computer glitches that peers were trying to work out, so as they did that, I figured I would clean up my trash.  I crumbled it into a ball and started walking to the trash can.  That's when it happened.

 I ruined the surprise. 

I walked past a peer's desk, looked down, and there was a radio flyer wagon filled with all kinds of cute little baby things. 

I couldn't believe it.  I was in total shock and really didn't know what to say.  I had no clue!

During the shower, we played a few games with our other peers in the other regions.  I opened the wrapped packages and pictured what Nolan would look like in each of the outfits.  We finished with wonderful red velvet cupcakes that had dyed blue icing. 

What a wonderful surprise!
