Saturday, November 27 th 10am-1pm Saturday, December 4 th 10am-1pm Saturday, December 11 th 10am-1pm Saturday, December 18 th 10am-1pm Dear Dr. Truth: We recently became pregnant with our first baby. My husband and I are so excited! But as much as we can’t wait to tell everyone, we’re worried about telling them at different times. We’re not on social media of any kind and we’re afraid someone we tell will post something that will give us away before we get to everyone. Do you have any suggestions? Is it wrong to just write a letter to the paper? So excited! Big and Befuddled Dear Big and Befuddled, This is very exciting and newsworthy information, but printing it in the newspaper…really?! This is news that one shares with family members intimately. Tell the grandparents to be, and it will spread like wildfire… AND THAT’S THE TRUTH!
