Baby Shards

I was brainstorming about what to blog this week as I returned from my sister's baby shower. Then it dawned on me: the baby shower.  I thought a baby shower would be boring, but I learned a good lesson worthy of sharing. Without divulging too many details of diaper games, baby talk, and bottle discussions, a long afternoon it was. I was happy after 2 hours but 6 hours later, I felt drained and ready for a tequila shot. Of course, this could have been brought on by me being mistaken for the grandma-to-be(I'm the aunt-to-be... thank you very much). Somehow, I pushed through and was glad to know that my sister was happy. Sometimes, you just have to push through for people that really matter.

  3. What a good sister you are! Six hours, really?! I think I would have given up after two. I have only attended a couple of baby showers (that included my own.) Not the type of event I would go to every week :-) Good thing they had "strong" drinks there. :-) Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

  4. LOL. Congrats Sandy!

    Having never been to a baby shower and never wanting to go, I would say you probably used all of your strength to stay for six hours. I think I would have grabbed a plate of food and a big glass of the Skyy and found a corner to hide in!

  5. "Aunt Sandy"! Has a nice ring to it! You get to spoil the kid then send it home!

    Pics are fun to look at. The cake is funny and I won't even ask what kind of shenanigan
    you were up to in the kitchen, arms out and trying to pick up something from the floor!
    Your Sis is a beautiful young Lady as the pics show. (I must be getting old, everyone looks like kids to me!) Finally we come to the pics that I am familiar with 'The Food and Drinks'!
    I Toast you for your patience and your Sis and husband on the upcoming birth! 'Salud!'

  9. I'm curious about what kind of charades you were playing during the baby shower...I can see an egg falling to the floor. I hope it was hard-boiled. Really, I'm a little jealous, because I can see you had so much fun.
