Looking for ideas on how to tell the grandparents that I am pregnant?

We will be dropping our 5 year old off tomorrow night for New Years and want to tell them then. Should we wrap something and say it is a late xmas present or do something for New years?

  • Have you 5 year old wear a shirt that says I'm a big sister/brother

  • I really like the shirt idea

  • OP here-That is a cute idea and if I was further along I would do that but I don't like buying things like that until I am farther along. I would hate to miscarry or something & have the shirt. We told them the minute we found out last time and want them to know now. Only the grandparents are going to know!

  • you can just write I'm a big brother on a piece of construction paper and let him carry it in..does the 5 yr old know you are preg?

  • Yes, she does know. So keeping from everyone but the grandparents is probably a joke since she will probably tell.
