  • I had my son tell Grandmom at a family cook out. He was 6 and he said Grandmom, I have a secret for you. "Mommy has a baby in her tummy" it was really cute

  • I was only 19 and they hadn't even met my boyfriend yet (I was on the "outs" with them when we met and I was mad at them, so I never brought him around!), so it was VERY hard for me. I told my sister first and she was moving away and didn't want to move without having someone else in my family know, so she kind of made me tell them. They had been talking about having grandkids for YEARS (hoping for one from my older brother or sister) so either they would be very disappointed or very excited. I told my mom first, just started talking to her and I handed her a picture of my ultrasound and said, "Here's a great picture for you, grandma." And she was really shocked, but gave me a hug and said, "Oh my god. I am going to be a grandma?!" Then we went and told my dad and three brothers and my dad said, "When are you due, it better not be during hunting season?" (LOL) And everyone was SO HAPPY. I was relieved!
