Want some cute unsentimental words for birth announcement

32 replies

Last time I wrote "with ten little fingers and ten little toes!" at the bottom of the birth announcement. That's as slushy as I go.

So far all I can think of is ...

... thank f* that's all over

... starting bidding at £10

Maybe I'm just not in the right mood right now. Any ideas?

The Bump Has Landed.

The Sprog Has Dropped.

Ouch, that hurt like f*ck.

neither did i beety

put it in the paper but only cos my dad works there and we got it for free

fisil · 13/04/2005 20:40

marthamoo - I like your last one, but Granny might be offended. The first one might do, though!

I've got all that already Beety, just seems oddly insufficient - like you should sign off.

i put 'the bump has landed' too

Thomcat · 13/04/2005 20:42

No, nothing there that isn't slush, apart from a few 'hope you don't turn into as big a lush as your mummy'!
How about, 'Looking forward to seeing you grow up'?

Thomcat · 13/04/2005 20:43

Oh I seee, you are sending out annoucement cards! Oh sorry, got that all wrong.

marthamoo · 13/04/2005 20:44

The worst one I had, from a woman at dh's work who has 3 dd's, was "A boy..better luck next time!" Couldn't believe it, silly cow (I know she thought she was being funny but really [huffy emoticon])

marthamoo · 13/04/2005 20:45

Sorry, I had gone off at a tangent with TC there and moved on to congratulations cards!

Thomcat · 13/04/2005 20:45

Oh, how odd Marthamoo!

darlingbud · 13/04/2005 20:45

Wow that hurt
Don't do it
Pushing here
And I thought it was just indigestion

JanH · 13/04/2005 20:45

fisil, have you seen that ebay site that sells bodysuits embroidered with all babe's vital stats? Then you take pic of babe with mum and dad (and big bro probably in your case) and that's your announcement.

Very very cute and no words needed. Want me to look?

nailpolish · 13/04/2005 20:46

how about something like

the ...... family are now 3/4 (whatever!) thanks to the arrival of baby ....... on ...... at ......... weighing in at .............

all donations of alcohol and pro plus will be gratefully received

Thomcat · 13/04/2005 20:46

How about "The Stork has been'
I don't think i'm very good at this.

'It's a bbay'!

Errr, shall I just get my coat?!

Gem13 · 13/04/2005 20:47

I tried to describe them. Physically - long fingers, big feet, curly hair and generally - dainty, sleepy, smiley, loud (!), etc. Apart from hair colour all of the other characteristics were spot on!

fisil · 13/04/2005 20:52

JanH, oh queen of internet searches, I have already made the cards (plain white with a 3D felt nappy on the front - very cute - shall I send you one?). I like the idea, though, but not enough to have another baby just for the sake of it!

nailpolish, love the proplus/alcohol idea. Do you think Granny will?

Here - it's American but she does it the same day apparently so should get to you pretty fast.

They call a bodysuit an onsie apprently (onesie, maybe???)

nailpolish · 13/04/2005 20:54

och dont worry about her! shes so far up on cloud 9 shell never notice

just dont send her one, or send her a slushy one and maybe shell think you sent a slushy one to everyone, so you just have to cross fingers she doesnt see the real one!

shortcake · 13/04/2005 20:54

What about
"It started with a kiss..."

fisil · 13/04/2005 20:55

You know my Granny? When I told her I was expecting, back in October (after having seen her 2 weeks before), I got a call from my Aunt that evening "Granny tells me you've just had another baby. I don't believe her."

I like babylocketsfroggy's member profile comment:

"She is nice we like her alot."

Might nick that.
