I have now attended a baby shower.
And I almost got to host it too.
My wife was planning a baby shower for a girl in our neighborhood, and at the last minute got really sick. So, I packed up all her supplies and took them to the location. Then I made a feeble attempt to decorate the room to the specifications of my wife's internal vision.
Right before it started, my wife was feeling well enough that she wanted to attend. Needless to say, I was relieved. I don't know what goes on during baby showers, so I wasn't looking forward to trying to host it.
I'm just glad my wife had tasteful plans for activities. The only thing they did was chat, eat and make a couple custom story books for the baby.
I've heard rumors of some pretty interesting baby shower activities, and I can't imagine subjecting a bunch of women to guess what kind of candy bar has been melted to the inside of a diaper in the microwave.
Do people actually do this at baby showers? It makes me wonder what else I'm missing.
