I made it through baby shower #1 with zero tears. I admit I had a pretty pissed off morning. Bean slept in and he probably did himself more good than he realized. As soon as he got up I asked him to fix the convertible roof on my car. That was really an unrealistic goal since it only works about 15% of the time. But he was out in the driveway for awhile and eventual got it to work. I made my way to this baby shower with my bad mood in tow. As the time went on it got slightly better.
If I ever get pregnant I will have a baby shower. Or even if we decide to adopt, I want a shower. I don't care if I have to throw it myself and two people show up. I will have a baby shower. So I get ideas from everyone else's showers to use for my own. I guess that's the benefit of going to them.
