    Default how to tell the kids?

    If things go well at my u/s Monday we'll finally be telling our kids about the baby. Any creative ideas for how we could do it? They are 5, 3 1/2, and almost 2.

    little boy 4.26.11 @ 38+4 6lbs 14oz, 19.5" BFed until 26mo and restarted at 30mo!

    Can you find a book about adding a "new baby" to the family and read that to them and show them the u/s pics? What about buying a cheap pair of both boy and girl tennis or other shoes and saying you have a surprise for them?

    I just showed the kids the u/s pic and told them. Nothing fancy here.

    I have no idea, sorry. My boys guessed. I like the book and u/s idea though.

    That's a cute idea! I just outright told mine the minute I found out. (Um, yeah, didn't think that through... )

    Oh, I should add that DS1 has been asking for another new baby since DS3 was a couple weeks old. He and DS2 often talk about "when we get our baby #4". It's adorable. They never knew about my two failed pregnancies, so I feel like I've been keeping this a secret since early July!

    I gave Robbie a book about being a Big Brother and a Big Brother t-shirt.
