And as a last resort, there's no shame in getting her a gift certificate or baby diapers in larger sizes for this impromptu shower. The hosts should have been more considerate and given people time to prepare. Save the fancy knitted gifts for closer to her delivery date when you have the time to do it. You're a busy mom and with school just starting, you've got a lot of things to do right now that are more important. Your kids come first.

Just precious to remember. Aren't these babies something? Reminds me of my kids helping in the garden. One wanted to know if we could plant potato salad and another preferred to harvest barbeque sauce.
Absolutely needs to be written into a journal so you don't forget.
Our funniest moment was at a funeral. It was a Catholic mass. I think the priest conducting the funeral might have been a bishop. He was dressed in a miter cap and green vestments with gold embroidery. It was so quiet you could hear a pin drop. My two year old daughter piped up in a really loud voice, "Mom, is that God up there?" The whole church cracked up. The priest tried hard to compose himself enough to carry on with the funeral, but he kept laughing too.
