Announcing to parents


Any ideas on announcing to parents??
I need to tell them before scan as I need childcare for my other son.

I was thinking of sticking an apple seed to a card with a note saying the size of your new grand baby coming December

I ordered a plaque on amazon where you write the amount of weeks in and it says until your grandparents again

I had to think about how to tell my grandparents (they're not exactly supportive people and we anticipated negative comments, so wanted to tell them in a light hearted way (if we sat them down all serious, it would give them the chance to turn it negative.

I ended up asking what people were doing for Christmas (I'm also due December).
Nan, as I expected, scoffed and went "DON'T TALK TO ME ABOUT CHRISTMAS. I DON'T WANT TO HEAR ABOUT CHRISTMAS, IT'S NOT EVEN SUMMER YET".

So I then said "yeahh, it must be quite stressful with 6 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren..."

It took a moment for the penny to drop before they suddenly went "3?!" (They already have one from me and one from my cousin)

You could get your son a "big brother" shirt, and have him wear it to a visit with them.
