The Big Idea……When my sister first found out she was pregnant she immediately began talking about ideas for her gender reveal party. This was a totally new concept to me since it had been 7 years since my last pregnancy and these parties either didn’t exist or I had never heard of them. So she had heard of the balloon release and the cake cutting, and she suddenly said to me, “Oh! Do you think you can make a bath bomb that releases color?” So I have to give her credit for the idea. We started experimenting right away, and voila….we had a totally new gender reveal idea.
My sister is not the most patient person, so her husband
picked up the secret envelope from their doctor stating whether baby was a boy
or girl. He locked it in his car and hid
his keys from her. I was totally
expecting him to give me the envelope right away so I could make the reveal
bomb to bring to their party; however Tom didn’t trust me either (boo). No problem, I simply made a blue and a pink
with hidden labels on the bottom to bring along. He refused to give me the envelope until
seconds before the big reveal (whatever Tom, I can totally keep a secret). The party was going great. We did a contest where everyone could vote
boy or girl for $1 per vote, and winner gets the pot. The girl votes were ahead by far. When it was time everyone gathered in the
family room around the bowl of water.
Tom FINALLY released the magic envelope to me. I locked myself in the bathroom with both
reveal bombs and the envelope. I opened
it up, wiped away a few tears of joy, and took off the gender label on bottom
so no one else could see it. After
composing myself and putting on my poker face I opened the door. First face I saw was my husbands, and I
thought ‘wow, Tom was totally right. No
way will I be able to look at my sister’s face without letting her know’. OK Tom, you were absolutely right, I cannot
keep a secret at all! So I handed the
reveal to Mike and hid. He passed it to
the front, and the rest is in the video.
Please excuse the shakiness, my eight year old was taking it and she was
REALLY excited. (She’s the one screaming ‘It’s pink!, It’s pink!’).
