I spent a lot of time googling how to tell your husband, your parents, your friends & students that we were pregnant. I have a need to be creative in EVERYTHING possible. I don't want to be predictable, but I do want it to be fun and meaningful. So, one day while reading the forum on my what to expect when you are expecting app, I found the perfect way to tell our parents. It was a letter. One that could be emailed! Now, some would find that an email letter is impersonal, but we really needed to find a way that we could let them know at the same time- to be fair to both sets. So, here is what it said:
I do not have a face to see,
Or put inside a frame.
I do not have soft cheeks to kiss.
I don't yet have a name.
You can’t yet hold my tiny hands,
Nor whisper in my ear.
It's still too soon to sing a song,
Or cuddle me so near.
But all that will change come June;
That’s when mom says I’m due.
I am your new grandson or granddaughter;
And I can't wait until I meet you!
All I ask between now and then,
Is your patience while I grow.
I promise I'll be worth the wait,
Because of all the love we'll know.
So what I have to give you now,
Is a wish to you from me.
I cannot wait to be a part
Of this wonderful family.
Then we just sat back and waited for the phone calls. :)
