A Pregnancy Test On A Business Trip

My husband and I had been trying to have a third child for a while. <>

Unfortunately, the day I was to take a home pregnancy test, he was called out of town on business. <>

I had told our young daughters about the test, and they were excited. <>

We decided if it was positive, we would buy a baby outfit to surprise their father when he got home. <>

The three of us stood in the bathroom eagerly waiting for the telltale line to appear. <>

When it did not, my thoughtful seven-year-old gave me a hug. <>

“It’s okay, Mom,” she said. “The next time Daddy goes out of town, you can try and get pregnant again.”<>
