Hi Lovies! Today we are talking how John and I told our parents that they were about to become grandparents.
I am a big fan of boxes as you saw from my reveal to John so, I felt like it was only fitting to keep the theme and make boxes for our parents as well. We wanted to tell them around the same time so we waited for the weekend before Thanksgiving as John's parents would be in town.
We set up a dinner on the Friday before with my parents and then told John's parents on the Tuesday after.
The boxes each consisted of The Grandparents Poem, a onesie, a pair of baby socks and a pacifier.
The Grandparents 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.
Not yet can you hold my tiny hands,
Nor whisper in my ear.
It's still to early to sing a song,
Or cuddle me so near.
But that will all change come June 2017,
When they say I am due.
I am your first grandchild,
and I can not wait to meet both of you!
All I ask between now and then,
Is your patience while I grow.
I promise I will be worth the wait,
Just think of all the love we'll know.
So what I have to give you now,
Is a wish to you from me.
I can not wait to be apart
Of this wonderful family!
Baby Ricker Due June 29, 2017
Both sets of our parents were so excited and tear filled! We told them both pretty early on but we really enjoyed getting to update them weekly with early bumpdates and pregnancy revelations!
Did you tell the grandparents to be in any special way?
