- Wedding: January 2013
I am so excited! We told our parents over the last week that we are expecting. We are 10 and a half weeks and Valentines just felt like the right time. I got my Mother-In-Law a Valentines day card and I filled it out
Grandma and Grandpa
My Name, Hubbies Name, and Baby Q
She totally cried. I took it to her work over lunch to surprise her. She loved it. I wasn’t so creative with my Dad I just phoned him and broke the news. He was so excited, my favorite part was when he looked at his dog and said “Hear that Mr.Jones we are going to be Grandpas!” It was so adorable!!
The plans for telling my Mom and StepDad changed when my Grandma passed away on the weekend. I am a little sad that I didn’t tell her before so that she could share the moment with her mom. But she passed on before I got a chance. Instead I decided to wait until we went up to see her for the funeral. We went out for lunch and I gave her, her Valentines day card and I also had a little box filled with chocolates, I stuck a soother in the box. I gave my Mom the card and my Stepdad the box so they would both have something to open at the same time. I think I gave her the shock of a life time. She didn’t know weather to cry or laugh. She didn’t say anything for a few minuites she was trying so hard to hold it together. I think it put a bit of sunshine in her day. I was really unsure about doing it then. But I think it worked out for the better.
I ended up letting her tell all of her brothers and sisters. I couldn’t say no to her lol. Now our news is out of the bag. I still haven’t announced on FB and I don’t plan too. But OMG I want to start a pinterst board soo badly!
Have you told yet? Were your parents excited?
If you announced a while ago how long did you wait until the big facebook announcement?
