    I got out of the shower this morning and my wife showed me two lines. So fatherhood is coming.

    I need to find a creative way to tell my parents the are going to have a grand child. They had two already, but only for a few hours. My older sister had two children die shortly after birth. So this will be the first grandchild, and due to the issues in the past is going to be just a little extra big for them.

    Ideas please.

    He's a big dumb animal, ain't he? ;)

    Buy them a gift but sneak an ultrasound image into it. Hm, you might have to wait a while for that though. Not sure.

    Colton, that is the first question I asked. She said yes.

    Chris, your life will never be the same. Diapers will give way to toddling and putting everything out of reach. Soon the child will go to school, learn to cuss, and begin to doubt your command and knowledge of the universe. This will get much worse during the teenage years when you will become decidedly stupid. Late in the child's twenties you will suddenly begin to look wise again... if you live that long. :wink:

    Oh, and , um, congrats! BTW, "Denton" is a rare and distinguished name for a male child. :roll:

    And, seriously, don't mention the problems of the past. Simply tell them that a grandchild is on the way! Be sure to let them know that checkups of the mother, and later the child, are just fine, as time goes by. Best of luck!

    Google how to tell someone you're pregnant. I've seen tons of fun/cute ideas.

    How about giving her the test results at a strategic moment?

    Hey Chris, tell me how it feels? This is something I'll never experience and you're pretty good with the words...

    Congrats man!
