It seems that I am planning the baby shower for Sarah and Obie. They want to do a couples baby shower. I guess I will be doing a lot of the planning from my hospital bed. That will be good for me because it will keep me busy.
Sarah and Obie want to celebrate the upcoming birth of their little one with all their family and friends. They have a lot of family and friends. We obviously don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings so this is going to be a good sized baby shower. We certainly won’t be able to stuff everybody in anyone’s house that we know.. We’re talking 80 or so people. So I have to find a venue that is really cheap. We are going to do a pot luck.
I’ve never given a baby shower so I hope I do it correctly. It’s the last Sunday in April so I have to get hustling. I will have lots of help from Sarah’s friends and my sister and my niece. Sarah is not one to want to play games so I don’t have to worry about that plus I doubt if the guys would want to play baby games. We want it to be more like a big party with lots of good food, beer and wine.
She won’t get any more gifts by having the men and children come. She’s not doing it for the gifts. She just wants everyone to celebrate and have fun not just the women. Also Obie is taking such a big part in her pregnancy it only seems fair that he gets to attend the shower.
So I have my work cut out for me. I think it will be a fun day. I definitely want to keep it low key, inexpensive and a really great time.
If you guys have any ideas for the shower, let me know.
I actually did get to feel new baby kick this weekend. It was awesome!!!! I suspect this will be my last post until after the surgery. Hopefully I will be able to get on the internet at the nursing care center.
