How to Tell Friends that You're Pregnant On Facebook

What you will need:
  • A little creativity
  • A cute, existing son or daughter
  • A large piece of card stock, poster board, or in my case - a dirty-used pizza box!
  • A digital camera
  • Photo editing software such as Photoshop
  • A couple hours for your photo session
  • A buddy to help take the picture or inspire cuteness out of your son or daughter.
What you need to do:
  1. On a nice, sunny day call your buddy over for a photoshoot.
  2. Get your little one dressed in a cute outfit.
  3. When your buddy comes over, grab your camera, the little one, and the big piece of paper.
  4. Show your little one how much fun it is to hold the poster board by jumping around like a lunatic with him/her and while holding your own poster board so that they try and imitate you.
  5. While all the jumping insanity is going on, have your buddy snap pictures "in the moment".  Take as many pictures as time and disk space will allow.  Don't spare any shots! Remember, bad digital photos are easily eraseable!  We took about 200 photos only to use 6 in the final product.
  6. When you've run out of space or steam, give your little one a treat, and download your photos onto your computer.
  7. Review the photos and pick your favorites.  While reviewing the photos, note the child's facial and body expressions in each photo, and think of a good wording to compliment those expressions in the story board.
  8. Edit the story board in PhotoShop or other editing software
  9. Save your picture file and upload to Facebook with a fun, ambiguous status update message.  For example, my message read, "I believe it's time for me to start re-thinking my stance on minivans!"
  10. Seconds later, begin reading all the fun comments you've received!
And that's how it's done!!!
