A week or so ago I had my baby shower, MY baby shower for m e! It was an amazing day and I felt quite overwhelmed by the love and support in the room. I was surrounded by most of my closest friends and I thought how much it meant to me to have them all there and to know how they would all be there for me and my baby if and when we need it. I can’t wait for her to arrive and have all of those people in her life. We are two lucky girls.
I decided to try something different and write a little ditty about it. It is something my Granna would have done and she is no longer with us, I wish she was, I wish she was here to see me become a mummy and I hope she can see how far I’ve come to get here.
The Perfect Baby Shower Recipe
Take one specially chosen day,
Not too near but not too far.
Go to a comfy home or a fancy spa.
Add one amazing sister to play the host,
And a mum to support, she loves you the most.
Two cups of decorations,
With a little twist of pink,
Stir thoroughly and then pour yourself a drink.
Add to the bowl close friends, a variety,
Mix in two special guests, the baby and me.
Sound advice, beautifully written
Words of wisdom, from your heart
A fistful of excitement soon to start.
A large dash of kindness, a pinch of support,
Reassurance for mummy – a worrywart!
Add a handful of cheesy games,
And a bag of cute baby pics,
Stir in some stories, not horrors but classics!
Mix two pinches more of amazing friendship,
Cook a little longer and enjoy the trip!
