I never really thought what a funny name a “baby shower” is until I tried to explain to Lila what you do at a baby shower and why she might want to go with me.
Lila: “How old is the baby getting showered?”
Me: “Um….it’s not actually getting showered. In fact, the baby isn’t even born yet. We just give the Mom presents to help her get ready for the baby.”
Lila: “Why do you call it a baby shower? Shouldn’t it be a Mom present party?”
Me: “Yes. Yes it should. But it will have food! Probably lots of yummy desserts.”
Lila: “Ok. I’ll go then. I still don’t know why there isn’t a baby getting showered though.”
Adorable presents. Yummy food. Beautiful Mommy-To-Be. Good company. Great afternoon.
