Play along, it's worth it

Beth and Chris: Guess what?
Internet: What?
Beth and Chris: No, guess.
Internet: Ok. You're both following your childhood dreams and
abandoning your seemingly normal life to join the circus. We've
always thought you were "circus people."
Beth and Chris: Try again. It's a secret.
Internet: You're not actually two people. All this time
you've been stringing us along you're really one talented yet highly
disturbed person. Right?
Beth and Chris: Come on. Get real. I'm, uh, we're two real
people. Give it another shot.
Internet: This seems to be a one-sided relationship. Its all
give, no get from us.
Beth and Chris: Hey, play along or we are taking our blogs and
going home. We're getting something. Now, what could it be?
Internet: Fine. A puppy?
Beth and Chris: Yes! One of those little ones you can carry
around in your purse!
Internet: Really?
Beth and Chris: Are you on crack? No.
Internet: Fine.
Beth and Chris: Try again.
Internet: A new car?
Beth and Chris: Yes!
Internet: That was totally not worth playing this stupid game.
Beth and Chris: Well, we are getting a new car, but that's not
what we want you to guess.
Internet: This is getting old.
Beth and Chris: Come on.
Internet: A new house?
Beth and Chris: No.
Internet: Rickets?
Beth and Chris: Ha-ha. No.
Internet: Annoying?
Beth and Chris: Fine, we'll give you another clue. It's
something we're getting in August.
Internet: Why should we care now, then? Post about it in August!
Beth and Chris: It involves new clothes.
Internet: Someone gave you a cruise?
Beth and Chris: No. It involves new furniture.
Internet: A new house?
Beth and Chris: No, you guessed that already. It involves screaming.
Internet: Um, unless someone's passing a kidney stone at a
costume party, I don't think I get it. I give up.
Beth and Chris: Fine, one more clue, but this really gives it away...

Internet: You're on X!! Beth and Chris: Of course not! Why would we be doing drugs when we're knocked up?

P.S. For anyone who doesn't know, my husband, henceforth to be called Daddy because it really freaks him out, is here.

I'm a bit preoccupied with sleep--it goes when the kids start coming!

Woo-hoo! Congrats!

I am very happy for both of you!! Where do we send gifts :-) When are you due? (Are we allowed to ask these things?)

Congratuations! I'm very excited for you both...


I am so excited for you both, I feel the tears welling up! YES!

I already left a hearty congrats over at your worse-half's (teehee) site. But I'll leave one here too.


I know you guys have been trying for a bit now, and I'm it's finally happening for you! HURRAH!!

See, I went and got my hopes up when I saw the joint post and now I'm just so darn happy I'm gonna cry because I'm such a big crybaby, but really really congratulations!

I left the same comment over at Chris', but hey, you guys wrote the same, post, right?

You already know how happy I am for you both, but I wanted to say it again. Conrgatulations and YAY!!

okay... I haven't congratulated Chris yet... but I will.

I normally comment on his site... and came here just to read - then saw the picture - and well.. CONGRATS! That's really fantastic.

You guys are in for so much fun now!!!

Congratulations! Beth, I'm wishing you a happy, healthy, wonderful pregnancy.

You know, Mother's Day is just around the corner and now that you are officially a mother, I'm thinking those diamond stud earrings you have been pining for would make quite the memorable first Mother's Day gift. You can thank me later. Just doin my part to drop ever so subtle hints here and there....

I'm so happy for you both. Baby Cacti is gonna be one lucky little one.


As I told your hubby, now you get to join the ranks with us crazy, parent folk ;) Best wishes.

Congratulations, Beth! Krush has the good news posted on Therapy Failed. Start making preparations for a baby blog!!! All the best.

Congratulations!!!!! I am SO happy for you and Chris! That is gonna be one great kid. I am sure of it. :)

Yay!!!! Wonderful news!.....let the happy dance commence...uh...NOW!


Cool beans! Congratulations, mum and dad!

As I just said to the Dad, Congratulations. And I didn't say to him - and my best wishes.

Best wishes for a wonderful pregnancy - I'm thrilled for you both.


As I just mentioned to Chris, congratulations! (I keep thinking I spelled that wrong, oh well). Anyways, I hope you have a great pregnancy. I'm sure the two of you will make wonderful parents! =D

Congrats! I am so happy for you and think that you guys will make excellent parents. After all, a sense of humor is so important!

I have to keep bringing this up, but I don't want you to forget me LOL I'm the mom of 6 and I can't tell you how happy I am for you 2! You are in for the ride of a lifetime. But it's the best ride you'll ever take. There will be crying and screaming, occassionally, the baby will cry and scream too LOL It's an awesome job with what seems like no benefits, until you wake up one morning to "Mommy, I love you, you're the best". Then you know it's all been worth it!

Congrats to you both!!! My best wishes go out to all of you.... =-)

*squee!!!* that is so freaking AWESOME!! :D i'm oh-so-very excited for the two of you :D :D congrats, mommy :D


Hi there Beth!
I read your Hubby's blog... I didn't know he was your hubby. :-)
I've congratulate him and just wanted to congratulate you too!

You're in for a GREAT adventure!

If you need a babysitter, CALL ME!
I do it for a living! lmao
*not at home, but at a Day Care!*

I'm also a Cactus reader and wanted to tell you congratulations and I hope it is so, so wonderful for you!

My Kid was also born in August, so I gave Chris some advice to make the last few (hot!) months easier on you!

Good luck and enjoy this time!

Congratulations, Beth! It must be something in the water - a co-worker of mine found out she was pregnant yesterday. I hope everything goes wonderfully!

Squee, squee and triple squee! I'm so happy for you guys! Here's to a quick and uneventful 9 (10 actually) months. Congrats!

Congratulations to you both :) Have a happy, healthy pregnancy and enjoy your little person :)

Well done guys!

Congrats and Good Luck to a very pleasent pregnancy! Again, YEY for baby CactusFish!

Just heard the good news. Congratulations!! :) xoxo

Congratulations, I am so pleased for you guys.

Now is this Freudian or are you guys using blue and white (hint no pink) dummies (pacifiers?) for any particular reason. Hmmmmm

Congratulations! Quite happy for you!


YAY!!!! I'm so excited for you both!! :)
congrats! Good job ;)

I had guessed by the forth line, but as I kept reading I got all goose-bumpy!! Now I'm crying!! Yay! I am happy beyond words for you both! Let the games begin!

Hey Congratulations! I'm glad you two finally figured out how to make a baby. :-) And damn, I didn't win the pool. But Hey, August is a great Birthday month as evidenced by my birthday on August 7. Leave it to the holidays to get you in the mood to make babies. You guys rock.

Congrats Beth!!!!!!!!!!!! :::passing you some of my saltines:::: Mazel Tov!


Congrats! That is wonderful news. I hope the tiredness lessens soon for you!!

I'm a little slow, but congratulations!!! I am really happy for you guys - you're going to be GREAT parents :D

I just wished the hubs congrats...and am happy to meet you and wish you all the best! Congrats and you are so going to get used to be called, "Moooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooommmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmy!" three million times a day!

What a funny, witty, intelligent child that will be. With good taste. And a super hot fake boyfriend or fake girlfriend (celebrity version only, of course).

I'm sorry I'm late to the party, but Yay! Yay! Yay!!

okay, so when we were having that email convo a couple of weeks ago you were TOTALLY pregnant! heh-heh. now you've REALLY got me all thinking i'm about old enough already!


OOPS! no, that was mylissan. my bad. but it's funny, cause we were all talking about how sometimes you can just put it off and put it off, but you might as well just do it because you're never going to think you're ready, it just HAPPENS and then you ARE ready.

happy for you!

Congratulations!! :)

Where the hell was I went you posted this? Oh yeah I've been busy at work and haven't been around to read my favs. OMG I'm so speechless.
