How can I tell my mom that she is going to be a grandmother again?

I would like to do this in a poem or some way that is really neat.

  • Well Mother's Day is in two days... this is one example of a poem...

    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 will change come summer time,
    That’s when they say I'm due.
    I'll be your third grandchild; I can't wait till 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 have a Merry Christmas
    A wish to you from me.
    I cannot wait to be a part
    Of this great family!

  • Me TOO! I am waiting till I have my ultrasound. I bought my son a shirt (he will be 8 in June) and it has Only Child crossed out and Big Brother under it. I want him to give my parents the ultrasound. I thought that way it's more touching coming from one grandchild to his grandparents instead of me telling them.

    Try this poem

    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 will change come ____________(month baby is due),
    That’s when they say I'm due. I'm your new ________ (grandchild or other relationship);
    I can't wait to 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 show. I cannot wait to be apart of this wonderful family!

  • I had to look at your screen name and make sure you were not my dd. I do NOT want more grand children. I hope your mom does. I hope this recession has not put you in a financial bind and you can afford another mouth to feed. I hope you have at least adequate income that can feed your family and keep a roof over your head and all is well with the husband (I hope you have a husband and don't want mom taking care of you and the new one). I hope it's a planned pregnancy and not an "Oops, look what we did" type of thing.
    Sorry, but I'm so glad this isn't my dd.

  • I like the poems that were given to you. That would be super in a Mother's Day card.

    And Anonymous 8:57 a.m.-What does it matter if her mother wants more grandchildren or not? She's getting one. I know my parents did not want me to have more children after my 3rd. I am now pregnant with my 5th. My husband and I support my children emotionally and financially and quite frankly, it is MY uterus. We will have as many children as WE want...not as our parents want us to have. Sheesh.

  • I really like the poems that were posted. I am telling my mom on Mother's Day that I am pg w/ her 4th grandchild. I was thinking of having each of my kids give her a flower, and then I would give her another flower and a copy of my ultrasound picture. Maybe I will use that poem too.

  • To the anon poster... I am also glad I am not you "dear daughter". Doesn't seem like you think much of her or her mothering skills. Way to be supportive, maybe if you had done a better job raising her you wouldn't have to feel like you do now.

  • I like your poem idea! I also had a friend who went to visit her mom and gave her a present and inside was a bib, bottle, pacifier.. that type of thing. Kind of a neat idea
