Would you rent a stork sign to announce your new bundle of joy??

Thinking about starting a company on the side. It would even have a keepsake star or baby bundle with the personalized info to hang up in the nursery.

  • Well I don't know, my husband is a deputy and we've never heard of anyone warning parents against announcing the birth of their children! People put out balloons all the time, I don't see what the difference is!
    I think it sounds adorable personally, and I'd have no hesitation setting one up (or hinting that I'd love to see one greeting me as we pulled in from the hospital!)

  • Law enforcement officials warn parents NOT to post signs like this in their yards where the public can see. It signifies that there is a new baby, and increases the chance your family could be victimized. I would never do this.

  • Like the kind you put in your yard? A lot of neighborhoods actually have rules against things like this. Mine does. Besides, there are crazy people out there and I don't want to take any chances in those crazy people coming to steal my baby!

  • I think it's a cute idea. I might not spend the money on it- but that's because I'm cheap. Someone else might though =)

    We did have balloons and "It's a Girl!" sign on our porch thanks to my MIL. But we do live in a fairly safe town.

  • I love the idea of the stork...HOWEVER, I personally would never do it because there are to many crazy people out there.
