A married couple had been trying to have a third child for a while. Unfortunately, the day she was to take a home pregnancy test, he was called out of town on business.
Mommy told her young daughters about the test, and they were excited. It was decided if it was positive, she would buy a baby outfit to surprise their father when he got home.
The three of them stood in the bathroom eagerly waiting for the telltale line to appear. When it did not, her thoughtful seven-year-old gave Mommy a hug. “It’s okay, Mom,” she said. “The next time Daddy goes out of town, you can try and get pregnant again.”
