Moody, Emotional, and Filled with Attitude

I finally spilled the beans to my principal. His response?
Mr. L : I already knew
Me: How did you know?
Mr. L: You have been extra vocal lately.
Me: I am always vocal!
Mr. L: Yea, but you are now moody, vocal with an attitude, and emotional.
Me: hmm.

I did ask him not to tell anyone, not even his assistant principal (she spilled the beans to the entire faculty when I was pregnant with Evan). He said it was not his place to tell, but he was surprised how long I kept it hidden and he did not push because he knew I would come to him when I was ready.
I decided to tell him because I had to explain why I kept leaving early for dr. appointments.

Apparently, the support leadership team has been trying to "figure" me out. These group of ladies (ESE specialist, Reading Specialist, Curriculum Specialist, Guidance Counselor, Assistant Principal - ALL chatter boxes) eat lunch together and I have been the topic of conversation for months. They *suspect*, but don't know for sure because apparently, I waddle, am limping, have a handicap sticker in my car, and have been giving an attitude when I am advocating for my students. Hmmm. I wasn't aware of that.
My principal did agree that I am a very private person and if I chose not to tell anyone then that was my business. I completely agree. I also told him that I had another 2-3 weeks in the danger zone before I felt comfortable enough to start telling/confirming it.
Moody, emotional and filled with attitude? Yup! Thats me!

Awaiting my expected end,


  1. I love that you have such a relationship with your principal that he felt comfortable enought to tell you that you were moody! LOL, that is too funny! Praying for these next couple of weeks to pass by quickly and uneventful!

  2. lol, i got that too. after i had Juju some coworkers confessed to me that they thought i had been a really moody, emotional pg person. who would have known?! ;) i thought they just couldn't handle me.

    thinking of you as you continue through the danger zone. ((hugs))

  3. It's great to have an understanding principal! And I know what a big step it was to tell him, so big hugs to you!

  4. This made me giggle - what a guy! I'm so happy you were able to take this step!

  5. Loved this post! I know this was a big step for you.....

  6. Moody, emotional, "extra vocal", we still love you!!!

  7. Hormones will do just that, make you a little more vocal and slightly moody :) If its any consolation, I'm right there with you!

    Sending continued prayers and love always. And you will tell people when the time is right!

    BIG HUGS and Rub the little bump for me

  8. Big YAY for an understanding principal, and kudos to him for NOT sharing the information. I totally agree with you...it is YOUR news to share when YOU are ready. :)

  9. LoL! I can only imagine what the topic will be once you do tell them. Sending you love and BIG HUGS!

  10. I'm so glad your principal is understanding as you go through this journey! Continued prayers heading your way. :)

  11. I have a wonderful friend who is having a difficult and high-risk pregnancy and she is waiting as long as possible to tell people she's pregnant. I asked her how she is keeping it a secret because it's incredibly clear she is pregnant (think basketball on a bean pole). People just aren't asking her about it since she isn't volunteering any information. I think a lot of us take a "I can neither confirm nor deny" stance because our pregnancies can become obvious before we want to talk about it. I'll be waiting through at least the first trimester, maybe even longer, but I had bad morning sickness with Claire and I got a little..ok A LOT top heavy, very fast. People will look and wonder, but I won't tell! My thoughts are with you and I hope that you and the little one continue to do well!

  12. Hi, I just found your blog through a mutual friend's. Just wanted to drop in and say hi! I look forward to following you. Blessings to you!
