How to Tell Your Kids You’re Having a Baby
I wanted our news to be a super positive memory for the kids, so we decided to do something they love to announce it to them. We went on a bicycle scavenger hunt around town. I drove around ahead of time and hid the clues. Then we took off on our bikes and followed the clues.
The last one was a balloon for each of them with a card attached that either said, “You’re going to be a big brother again” or “You’re going to be a big sister”. The reactions were varied (as we expected). Lucas was silent, Kate was super excited, and Josh said, “No. I don’t want a baby. No.” He has since come around to the idea, but only if it’s a boy.
Even with severe helmet hair she was excited!
