I had about three minutes to put this together because we had somewhere to go, so I grabbed some plain white paper and made a quick announcement card. Natalie was very excited because she thought we were going to give her some money.
The inside had a very early ultrasound photo taped on one side and a message on the other. We asked Natalie to read it to Michaela Byrd, who as you can see, took an extra moment to comprehend the news.
I'll let you see their reaction with this video. (If you're in a reader or reading this via email, you'll need to click over to the blog to see the video) I will preface it by saying that Natalie's dance recital was earlier that day, hence the ridiculous sequined headband in her hair that she refused to take off.
I feel lucky that they took the news well. I've seen other videos on YouTube of kids crying or stalking off angrily. I'm sure my girls will have their *moments* with their new sibling, but for now it's all they can talk about. Natalie is, in her own words, "really good at babies."
Have you done any creative pregnancy announcements with kids? How did they handle the news?
