We live across the country from our families. We have a 3 yr old DD. We find out what we are having in 2 weeks. I want to share the news with our parents somehow, maybe through Skype? I do not want to do the cake reveal or use balloons. I am trying to think of something else. Anyone heard of any other ideas? I guess I could just do it the traditional way and just call them :) But it's our last baby and I just think it would be fun to involve DD somehow too. Then maybe we would use same method for friends that live far away on FB. Let me know if you have any fun ideas! Thanks!
Creative ways of telling family sex of the baby?
We are doing gender cakes but since you don't want to do that, I would maybe have your 3 yr old say something about brother or sister. My daughter would love to share that news!
You could take a photo of your 3 yr old holding a sign that said little bro or little sister on the way and post that on FB....just an idea or holding pink/blue baby clothing.
Maybe there is a visual way you could do that without cake? Get the sex in an envelope, bring it to a schmooey baby boutique (where I'm assuming they would do this kind of thing for you) and pick out an item that comes in boy/girl and pay for it. Then ask the store people to open the envelope and choose accordingly and wrap it all up in gender neutral paper while you wait in the car or have lunch. Then you can open it with everyone watching...something like that?
That's how I announced our pregnancy on facebook. I figured I'd go and update the spot for the baby with pink or blue booties when we find out.
Not sure how we'll tell the kids/grandparents. I like the ideas here!
