Harry Potter pregnancy announcement
November 8, 2016 9:04 AM   Subscribe

My parents are visiting soon and I'm going to tell them I'm pregnant. My sister is going to wear a "future aunt" type shirt and we will wait for them to notice. But all we can find are lame ones. Help us design a Harry Potter themed aunt announcement shirt!

We will make it ourselves. Something like "accio baby" but more clever.

I love the Aunt of Hogwarts 2035 graduate idea.

"Wingardium Babiosah"

(maybe with a graphic of a Cherub/Cupid or maybe a stork with baby bindle, probably room for improvement here)
---------------
"I solemnly swear that I'll be a good Aunt" or something like that with the HP font.

(Marauder's map graphic inspired by baby things around the house)

Make a shirt with a copy of the Harry Potter acceptance to hogwarts letter. But change the words to announce your birth. Your parents would have to read a paragraph on someone's shirt.

A little on the dark side, but would something based on"Prepping a room under the stairs" work?

Maybe "Room under the stairs: No vacancy", or a play on that obnoxious Single/Taken shirt?

"Sad to be a Muggle, Proud to be an Auntie!"
"Constant Vigilance! An Auntie's work is never done"

Immediately I thought of something about how she is so much better than Petunia, who was a flipping terrible aunt, but I don't know how to make that into a funny shirt.

Therefore I am backing whole heartedly "Auntie of Hogwarts Alum 2035" or whatever year makes sense.

How about a "Howler" note or Owls at eleven note.

Welp, I've got Hyperemesis gravidarum and had to tell my parents over the phone. Loved your suggestions, though!
