Tiny, Pink, Girly

I’m taking a break from dipping strawberries in chocolate, shoving clutter in various hidden places, and stringing little pink onesies, socks, and hats across the house with tulle and ┬ápink clothespins. Cuter than it sounds.

The baby shower is tomorrow. The house is not ready. I am not ready. At least the strawberries are ready.

Caden-7yr looked around at all the pink baby things and asked, “Does Dad know about the baby shower?”

“Of course. Why?”

Mike’s been out of town.

“I just wouldn’t want him to come home and see all of this and get embarrassed.”

“Embarrassed?! Why would he be embarrassed?”

Caden-7yr gave me a look of disgust and said, “Because…? We don’t have a BABY.”

I laughed. But really… I still don’t understand. Caden-7yr is uncomfortable with all the pink baby stuff, though, and has expressed his desire for tomorrow to just be over already.

I would just like to fast forward to the part where the house looks good and my shoes are cute.

(I’d just hate to be embarrassed.)

Too funny – maybe he thinks you’re throwing yourself a baby shower….for a non-existent GIRL baby!

Caden-7 year… a west Texas man’s man?

Y’know, the thing about social gatherings, is that whatever you don’t get done will not disappoint anyone, bacause they had no idea what you’re planning in the first place!

Emily,
oh DEAR. none of those things will EVER happen!!
Linda,
well… he’s something else, that’s for sure! And you’re right about social expectations. there was NO WAY I was going to come up with baby shower games, and – unsurprisngly – no one was disappointed at all. As far as I know.which is good enough for me.

Jenn S,
It WENT and it’s over and I’m relieved!!! I only do things like that once every few years, and that’s about as much hospitality as I have in me!
