I’m sure they’ll be excited. My mom told me we should wait a year or so to have kids. We waited 3 months and she was over the moon still! if theyrr not happy that’s their problem, not yours!

if their not into decoding subtle hints, why not just come out and tell them? The announcement doesn’t have to be Pinterest worthy! Good luck!

You could do the thing where you all take a picture and just before you say we’re having a baby! It could be a cute keepsake after the fact haha! I’d look into doing some fun way to tell them that’s more obvious so they don’t have to decode.

Sorry, I didn’t do any cute announcement lol, I just said “so we’re having a baby”. As for yourfamily  members, I feel like a lot of people say those things about waiting to have kids, but when it actually happens, they are happy. Congrats!

A mother’s day gift for grandma might be a fun thing to do!

<br />For us, we announced by DH’s bday and I had a cake made that said we were having a baby (in the form of a family tree).

<br />AlmostMrsShield:  Why dont you get a grandmothers card instead of a mothers card for mothers day. That would be simple and cute 🙂 Good luck with whatever you decide. I am sure your family will be thrilled!

AlmostMrsShield:  I think the Mother’s Day card is perfect! That’s what I did for my parents since it was their anniversary. it did go to show that my parents don’t read my cards very closely because they did notice it said baby until I told them to read it again, lol!

I think a grandmother card idea is great!!

lol and I feel your pain regarding your step-mother. My dad’s wife is the same. Exactly. She told my sister te her and my dad were very disappointed in her when she told them she was pregnant at 25 yrs.

AlmostMrsShield:  I love the Mother’s Day idea card. I thought if I was pregnant by now, I would send mom a card with a few lines that say “you will be a grandmother again” since she already has two grandsons. Let us know how it goes 🙂 I love announcements especially pregnancy ones.

AlmostMrsShield:  Awesome! I’m glad it went well!..or fairly well anyways..weird that your step sister didn’t even say congrats or something but whatever I guess could have been worse, at least nobody made any snarky or rude comments! 

Your brother’s reaction was adorable, how did your mom react now that you have told her as well!?
