A week or so ago DH and I went our separate ways (temporarily), off to see our respective families for the day (his mom was visiting from Florida and it was my nephew's birthday, so it had to be done). The following week we (jointly) met up with DH's family en mass for lunch at Maggiano's (yum!). Everyone was there: my mother-in-law, two sisters-in-law and their S/Os, and an assortment of nieces and nephews of varying ages. Now don't get me wrong, I am lucky to have a MIL I adore and she likes me back. Nevertheless, my jaw hit the table when the first thing she did when we had all sat down was to look me straight in the eye and ask "So Debbie, did you bring Edward?" Luckily, I wasn't in the middle of sipping a beverage or anything, because I would have either 1) choked or 2) shot said beverage out my nose (never a good look). Seriously - I was speechless for a moment. This may be because I was absolutely 100% positive that I had never mentioned my Twilight obsession to his family (or mine, for that matter), and DH had conveniently not mentioned that he had outed me in my absence the previous weekend. I shot him an accusing look (his response: "What? I ran out of things to talk about, so...") before admitting to everyone that yes, I actually had brought mini-Edward along for the ride that day. Luckily, Edward's a real charmer and won over the ladies (and some of the boys...) in no time flat--MIL and SIL even posed for a pic!
