My Shower

Posted in Uncategorized at 7:06 pm by bitsypieces

Had my “early” baby shower yesterday… which was held this early because Mom has cancer and her friends wanted to make sure she had a chance to enjoy a baby celebration.  It was mostly Mom’s friends, with only one person my age.  It was incredibly lovely.   The ladies who put it together (in less than 2 weeks time!) thought of everything!

We didn’t do any games or activities, mostly because it needed to be kept super-short (Mom just doesn’t have the energy for a lot of activity).  The food was a lovely mix of finger-type foods, including fruit trays, cheese and crackers, veggies and dip, brownies, meatballs and crab dips.  A beautiful white cake read “Congratulations!”

The baby received many wonderful gifts… lovely items, both useful and sentimental.

Best of all, Mom was having a “good” day.  She was able to participate during the entire shower, she seemed in good spirits, and she didn’t feel too sick or too tired.  (Although she did collapse when all the guests left.)  I was so happy that she was able to enjoy it all… it was really the best part of the day.
