She’s Having A Girl! ( Momimhar posted on September 14th, 2013 )

It’s been a while since I attended a baby shower party.  The last time I went to one was for one of my girl friends in November last year before my family and I went to a long vacation.  I was invited to this party by one of my newly met friend.  Her friend’s step-daughter is having a baby and it’s a girl.

At the party I was able to see my other friends whom I seldom see.  Like me, they are busy mothers.  One of them just got a job-hired as a receptionist in a hotel in Dallas.  I feel a little jealousy here.  I should be going back to work soon, you know.  But my dear husband is not allowing it yet.  To tell you the truth, I am getting impatient.  But there’s a reason why.  I have to stay home and be a full time mom and wife until my little girl goes to school.  I don’t feel bad about it.  It’s just that, I feel left behind.  You know what I mean?

Well, everyone had a great time at the baby shower party.  Lots of good food.  Guests had a great time talking and catching up.  Picture-taking here and there.  So much fun!  The mom-to-be was very happy that her stepmother hosted a big party for her and the upcoming baby.  My gifts for her are baby wipes, rattle and teether, and a onesie clothing for the cold months ahead.

Shower gifts for mom and baby.

As the party progresses, me and the ladies joined a guessing game.  We have to guess what kind of baby food is in each jar.  Man, I got nothing right!  Well, the answers had to be specific.  How do I know what food combinations are there.  I just wrote down the main and the first flavor I tasted.  Oh well… 🙂

It’s a girl!

I didn’t stay very long at the party because I had to go home before the clock struck 7 P.M. I had a great time though.

    My niece is being given a baby show in December–her first-a girl–so far I have bay bath stuff (organic of course) lined up and I am furiously entering whatever else looks really nice—-then for the baby gift. Glad you had a great time–and by the way-be happy you can stay home until your child is in school-not all Mom’s can.

    Love the memories of the baby showers but over them now

  3. It’s been ages too since I attended one. Congratulations to your friend.

  4. You and I are opposites, I went back to work early after my youngest was born adn hated my husband for it. I finally quit to stay home and never looked back. I always felt I was missing something more important when I was working because I wanted to be with my son. You have to do what is right for you though, a happy mommy is very important.

      Same experience with my cousin. When her daughter was just growing up as a toddler, she went back to school to take up nursing (which she didn’t finished, though). And now, she’s regretting the time wasted because she wasn’t there when her child is developing as a toddler which to me is the very cute and sweet period of a child’s milestone. Yes, a happy mommy is very important. If mom is happy, everybody is happy. 🙂
