" It's Raining, It's Pouring, a new baby we'll soon be adoring"
Last week, saw me designing, making and trimming up my house with lots of baby shower bunting and streamers for a friend of mine, K, who is expecting to hear the pitter patter of tiny feet any day now. Hee he! How exciting!
I met K at a local baby group just after Mini Magpie was born. I also met M, D, J and A as we all had our babies very close together. Four of our babies infact are just days apart. We are having one big 'We Are Two' party this year. Combining has made it a lot easier.
We all see one another at least once a week. We chat, eat biscuits and drink tea while the 'kidney beans' (my word for little ones) play away, happily together. Actually, they all play very well together. It's lovely to see.
Anyways, ah! yeah, we also started to meet for a much needed, kidney bean free (unless chilli is on the meal, sorry, couldn't resist) "mummies meal out".
Last month, we decided that as it might be the last meal out for one of our mummies for a while before the imminent arrival of K's third precious bundle of joy. All in agreement, our next meet would be at my house for a take away and a little soiree to wish her well.
I know baby showers aren't exactly as well known over here in the UK as they are in the States, but as I was lucky enough to have been thrown one before Mini Magpie was born, and it was such a nice feeling celebrating the next adventure in my life with close family and friends, I wanted to return the favour. Plus the fact A and I are the only two out of the six of us who had ever been to one, we thought it would be nice to throw a mini one for K and indulge in a mid week treat at the same time.
What could be better than a nice evening with friends, a new baby on the way and a take out?
A goody bag or basket should I say, that's what! Filled with baby essentials from us all in preparation of the arrival .
Can't wait to meet you little one.
