If there's ever a time to go all out, it's to announce that you're having a baby. Sharing that you're pregnant is possibly the biggest news you'll ever disclose in your life. And whether it's your first or fifth pregnancy it doesn't matter—you probably want to share the excitement of your soon-to-be baby with as many people who will listen.

And now that we're living in the age of social media, having a cute, pregnancy announcement is almost as crucial as researching which stroller you'll purchase. We scoured the internet and found pregnancy announcements are anything but basic. They are cute, funny and some are so special you'll cry.

Here are our favorite pregnancy announcements:

So what's the deal with lazy parenting? How do I do it and what will it do for my kids?

When I first heard of lazy parenting, I thought someone had been spying on my house on Fridays from 5:30pm until bedtime.
