My answer is usually, well, just tell them. But if you’re looking for something with slightly more oomph (although not quite as oomph-y as giftwrapping the stick you peed on), we’ve tracked down some awesome new grandparent cards at mom-run Alternate Greetings.
Chief cardmeister Kiki Parry hand-prints all kinds of cards (on eco-friendly paper, natch) that justify the shop’s name and keep you giggling. But I really love the card that says To the proud new grandparents: Isn’t this why you had a kid in the first place? Because, um, yeah. It kind of is. Hand the card to the ‘rents and let instinct – and hormones – take it from there.
Trust us, mamas-to-be, you won’t need anything more than that to make the moment memorable. –Liz
