We told the kids yesterday, but of course it wasn’t as simple as that. First I told them they’d have to do me a favor and wear some monkey suits. I swear they almost had a meltdown thinking I was going to actually make them dress like a monkey. How they didn’t consider that as a joke is beyond me, but I guess kids are kids. Once I finally told them that some people call a tuxedo a “monkey suit” then they got it right away and screamed “You’re getting married?!?!”. Needless to say, they were and are excited beyond belief.
Now I’ve got just 5 short months of planning to do and I just hope and pray that is enough time! We still need to decide who we’d like to stand up in our wedding, besides our kids and my siblings. I have to find someone to walk me down the aisle since my dad is no longer with us. That thought alone brings tears to my eyes every time. I could kick myself for waiting so long that he isn’t able to be a part of it, but I try to find peace knowing that he will be watching from above.
