So this is probably the most stressful thing I will do this week. I need to tell my parents. Problem, they live out of state. The next time I will see them is at Christmas so telling them in person is not an option. Also, even though I'm a grown adult, 28 years old, and married 6 years I still feel like they will not be very welcoming of the news. We are currently looking to buy a home and I keep telling them I think we really need a 3 bedroom at least so we have room to grow (baby room, plus office), and they keep saying that 2 might be okay

So I was thinking I need a fun exciting way to break the news to them. I was thinking a bouquet of flowers in baby colors, but that's all I've come up with.

Please help with some me with some creative ideas!!!

Have you seen the personalized M&Ms? You can pick any color and put 2 messages. So one could say "We're pregnant" and the other could say Due: June 2011. I planned on doing this with pink and blue M&M's but when I went to order them the wait time was about 9 days. I knew I couldn't wait that long too tell our parents so I didn't do it, but I think it's a really cute idea! They're priced pretty reasonably too. Here's the link if you're interested:

Thank you, Marriedc, for my gorgeous siggy!

I don't have any ideas, but want to wish you luck!! I am sure they will be happy, and if not at first, then they certainly will when baby comes.

You could call a bakery local to them and order a cake with the message on the top to be delivered to them.

P.S. I love the M&Ms idea. I'm trying to figure out who I could send M&Ms to, because we already told our parents.

Cute ideas!

You could send them a ballooon bouqet with "Congratulations" "Grandma" "Grandpa" balloons.

I'm planning on giving them a copy of the ultrasound pick with little onesies that say I love my Grandparents or something like that.

I am going to tell my parents this weekend. They will be a little disappointed at first because we needed to wait until at least DH was done with school but they will warm up to it. This baby will make #12 for grandkids for them.
