Help me creatively share with our (long-distance) parents the wonderful news that my wife and I are expecting our first child.
Our estimated due date is early May 2010. We're planning on sharing the news with our families in late October (around our moms' birthdays).
There is a small chance my parents will be visiting us around this time, but it's not guaranteed, so we'd like to plan something that will work without us having to be present. The only thing that's come to mind so far:
- Mail "World's Best Grandparents" shirts back home to a family friend who will wrap them like a birthday present and hide it in the house to be discovered during a future phone conversation with Mom. Make sure dad is present when Mom opens her gift. Surprise!
Pretty simple, but now I'm rethinking it because all of the shirts I've found online
Do you have any better ideas or do you know where I can buy a cooler shirt (or other item that would suffice)?
Bonus points if you can think of a creative way to tell the rest of my family afterwords (brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, etc.).
