I have private social media accounts for obvious reasons, but my husband does not. A few of my students have figured this out and follow him on Twitter, which I think is both hysterical and wonderful. Last night, this exchange took place:
Me, looking at my ever-increasing belly: “Nope, not to my knowledge…”
It made me feel very loved, as strange as that may sound.
This excitement grew quickly. A student asked if they could come see me during my leave. I said, “Of course!” thinking she meant–you know–two or three weeks after the baby gets here.
“We can?! What hospital??”
I’ve been asked repeatedly to send a text through Remind once Jonas arrives. Some girls were talking about what the text should say, exactly (because just sending a picture of him wouldn’t be sufficient…?). One of them said, “Just text, ‘Chain Rule is complete.'” I love it when their math nerdiness takes over.
