There are some things you just shouldn't spring on people as a total surprise. For example, if you've recently gotten married and your in-laws are coming to visit for your husband's senior recital, you might not want to wait until they arrive to let them know that there's been a new addition to the family since they saw you last.
I know that there are good ways and not-so-good ways of breaking important news to people. That's why I'm writing this blog post now. Because FavoriteBoy's parents sometimes read this blog, and after reading this post, the news of our expanding family won't be such a shock when they come visit.

...the pet store.
Please welcome Poseidon, our handsome beta fish.
