Having a child is a blessing. I think on the good days we could all agree on that. On the bad days, I think we all question why did I think this was a good idea? HAHA! But no matter what, at the end of the day, we just love and adore them. However, what happens when your only child is about to no longer be an only child? Jaiden is 9 and telling him I was pregnant was going to be so much fun, but I wondered how I would tell him. Here are 6 ways to Tell your Child you’re Pregnant!
Jaiden has been asking for a sibling for about a year or so now. Telling him was going to be exciting because I knew he would be excited. However, I was unsure of how I was going to tell him. I mean there are a million different ways to tell your husband or significate other that you are pregnant, but what about your children? It’s that reason I wanted to share with you 6 Ways to Tell your Child You’re Pregnant.
I love that Jaiden usually enjoys reading. When I found out I was expecting I couldn’t wait to come up with ideas on how to tell him. One company I loved working with in the past was ISeeMe! They are an amazing company with all kinds of customized goodies for your little ones. I was so excited when I saw they had a book titled “The Super, Incredible Big Brother”. I knew this would be the perfect book for Jaiden. Now if you aren’t expecting, just know they have a TON of amazing items and books that can be customized!
Kids love to feel special. A surprise dessert could always be fun! Heck, even cupcakes would be fun! You can do a simple cake with the saying “There’s a bun in the oven.” (assuming they understand that one, haha), “You’re going to be a big brother/sister!”. You can also decorate the cake with a stork or babies
Customized shirts are always fun! Announcing I was pregnant was a tough choice. I didn’t know how at first and then I decided a custom onesie was a perfect idea. That is how I ended up getting a shirt for Jaiden. Best Big Brother! It was right to the point that he was going to be a big brother! You can’t be much clearer than that! Thank you Forever Moore Designs for the perfect custom tops!
We haven’t done this one yet, but taking your kids to see the baby is one amazing way to tell them they are going to have a new sibling. They will be able to see the baby and hear their heartbeat. They will feel involved and it’s always an amazing experience to see the baby.
Stork was a movie I fell in love with. Sit down for a movie night with some popcorn and enjoy the movie with your kiddies. It’s such a fun and loving movie, that your little ones will be laughing and enjoying themselves. You can take this moment to talk to them and tell them they are going to have a new sibling on the way.
To go along with the Stork movie, fill out this fun printable I designed for you all! Want to have some fun with your little one’s, download and print this Baby Order Form and you all can fill it out on what your guesses would be for the baby. This would be a fun way to include them and give them a chance to guess on what the baby may be or look like.
