4: Your parents found out they were pregnant on Super Bowl Sunday. Mommy told Daddy that the results were about to show up, so to make sure he had something good to say, since it would be a story that would be repeated. She said, "It's positive," and he replied, "OK." That was it. | We told both sets of grandparents the next week, on Valentine's day. We made Hershey's kisses where we replaced the paper slips with "Happy Valentine's Day Grandma and Grandpa!" Those went unnoticed, so we had a backup plan, Daddy made a game on the TV so the last question was "Who is pregnant?" The correct answer was of course Mommy! It took everyone by surprise. Both sets of grandparents were very excited.
