Being 7+hours away from my family was a difficult transition for me but it was extremely difficult to tell them that Jordan and I were expecting when they were so far away!
I wanted it to be memorable but I knew it would be such a surprise that I knew it also needed to be something private.
We (I) ultimately decided the best way to tell them was with a gift! I mean, who doesn’t like presents, right?
I created “Baby Boxes” for both of my parents and also Jordan’s mother.

The Poem read:
“I do not have a face to see or put inside a frame.
I do not have soft cheeks to kiss, I don’t yet have a name.
You can’t yet hold my tiny hands or whisper in my ear.
It’s still too soon to sing a song or cuddle me so near.
But all that will change on July 11th, when Mommy & Daddy say I am due!
I am your sweet new grandbaby, and I can’t wait to meet you!”Amazon FreeTime Unlimited Free Trial
Luckily, I have really amazing stepparents who were willing to film both my parents’ reactions! It is so wonderful to look back now and laugh at how nervous I was to tell them!
