What’s Mommy Growing? Gender Reveal

What is the gender? Unique gender reveal with plants
4

Two days ago my midwife appointment was scheduled, my husband had just worked all night long the night before and was at home sleeping so I headed out of the house early and decided to go to Micheals Craft Store. I didn’t have any idea of how I was going to share the gender of our babe, I wanted to do something with confetti but there were two thoughts that were on my mind, ugh the cleanup and what if we missed the perfect shot. As I wandered the aisles of the store, I came across plain planters. I stared at them for a minute with Sophie in my hand tugging to get moving, and thought.. “I am growing something, boy or a girl… I am growing a baby sibling for my kiddos, how neat would it be if they could have something that somewhat symbolizes a baby growing.”

I picked up two of the planters and then then hit the paint aisle. “They can paint the planters in the colour of the baby to reveal it!” I thought to myself. So (keeping in mind this is before my appointment) without thinking and with a very impatient Sophie now in my arms because she has been trying to dart away, I grab a bottle of pale pink and purple paint, hit the cash register and head to my appointment. When I park the car and am getting Sophie out of the car I realize, “Sh*t, I don’t even know the gender yet, why the heck would I get pink and purple paint?” I shake it off and tell myself that I will go back and exchange for blue if need be.

Well, the appointment came and went, I decided that I didn’t want to be told but would rather open it up in an envelope, still undecided if I was going to wait for my husband or not to open at the same time. We get back to the car and well, let’s just say that envelope didn’t stay sealed for longer then a minute. Inside I read “Congrats! It’s most likely a… —>” ahh the anticipation, flip over and… “A GIRL!!”

EEKKK!!! Apparently I knew all along (hense the pink and purple paint) crazy how our bodies/minds work. I decided to bake my husband cookies, and to keep that short let’s just say it might not be the best way to share with your husband if you aren’t a baker. Mainly because I was impatient and putting icing on hot cookies never turns out looking well.

Make Your Own Gender Reveal Planters

Supplies:

  • Planter
  • Patio Paint (Outdoor/Waterproof)
  • Paintbrush
  • Favorite Plant (I loved that these ones had a rim of pink for our girl reveal)
  • Soil
  • Chalkboard Planter Stick

Directions:

I brought everything home, cleaned the pot and then laid out some newspaper for painting. I wanted the kids to do their own painting (however Ezra wasn’t into the colour choices) and painted the first coat all pink for Sophie. Holding the pot I let her use the paint brush to add splashes of purple. Let Dry.

Put in soil and Plant your plant of choice. Add your label to reveal the gender and Voila! Easy as that!

I can not even get over their faces here, Ezra didn’t want to hold the pink pot and his face pretty much sums up how he feels about being in a house with only two boys and three girls.

So did you guess right?

  • Evelyn’s looking at me like... “really I’m stuck with you all the time now 🤷🏼‍♀️” and I’m like, “ yah girl.. triple chin and all 🤣😂” but seriously... When we hopped into the car today Evelyn declared, “ YESSS MOMMY! We go pick up Sophie and Ezzie now!! Yayyyyy!” Poor thing had four more hours till it was really time.

I’m sharing all the details about my recent experience at @irisvisualgroup on the blog. Talking about what it was like going in with the girls, what age you should first bring your kids and what I’m going to start using during soccer games. Can you believe I have been playing half blind? Link in bio ( there's also more images of the three styles if you want to see before you vote). #ad #irisvisualgroup
  • Tomorrow starts the first full week of kindergarten for that confident girl on the right. I didn’t realize how emotional I was about the whole thing, until her first full day and I was basically a big giant mess. Here’s to hoping I can hold it together.
  • Overwhelmed by the number of you that responded to my stories today. Parenting is hard. Some days so much harder than others. The good thing is, we don’t have to do it alone. When we open up and share (like I did this morning to someone I’ve only met a few times) we give ourselves an opportunity to learn and grow. My hope for all of you is that through your journey, you constantly seek, grow and share. It makes a difference.
  • Drove out to @centralcitysurrey tonight with this girl. Lots of laughs as we tried on our five looks for this Friday’s fashion show! Say what!?

  • I made simple syrup for the first time at home and two things:
1. DANG that's good!
2. It's WAYYYY easier then I anticipated
•
After cruising a handful of different simple syrup recipes online I combined a few that I thought would work, reduced the sugar and substituted cream of tartar for lemon juice. For some reason I never like to follow the directions the first time and always like to try out my own... it doesn't always work out, but this time it sure did!! You can see more of the steps in my stories for how to make your own simple syrup and sparkling water using the new @sodastreamcanada FIZZI One Touch at home. I always love when things turn out easier than expected! Does anyone want the full recipe on the blog?
