I attended my first baby shower this afternoon for a lovely Army wife who is due mid-June. I had a wonderful time while eating my weight in chicken, crackers, and cake. We played several games and I won two!
The first game was an easy one where each guest had to grab a diaper out of a large bag and the person who picked the poopy diaper won a prize.
I opened up this diaper and found this lovely surprise inside. I was assured that it was just spread Nutella, which I usually find absolutely delicious, but in this case I wanted to gag. This sight completely turns me off from having children anytime in the near future.
I was gifted with some great smelling Bath & Body Works goodies and each guest also was given a little box of chocolates.
She seemed to like my gift packaging and was surprised that I had made the tissue flower on my own. I think she liked the little bodysuit set I had chosen for her baby girl, but she seemed more excited when she thought that it was a box of See's Chocolates instead of more clothes. I don't blame her!
There were plenty of babies, toddlers, and children running around the house. I think the fact that I was more interested in petting her black Labrador is a sign that I am not quite ready for children yet... although I definitely did my fair share of swooning over all the tiny socks, frilly dresses, and colorful pacifiers as she was opening up all of her gifts.
