The best baby showers, in my opinion, are more about gathering and celebrating and less about entertaining. There are a select few Baby Shower traditions and games that I love. I think the opportunity to share your favorite advice for mom is my favorite. I remember reading the lovely notes of wisdom and love from my first baby shower and treasuring them as a new mom.
I love the variety of advice given;
from very practical “You must have a baby swing,”to lovely quotes, such as “I remember my mother’s prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life.” ~Abraham Lincoln,to offers of support, like “Know that you are never alone. I am here for you anytime, even if it’s just to hold the baby for an hour while you nap.”
My preferred nugget of wisdom usually goes something like this, “There is no one way to be a perfect mom. Trust your instincts. Take in what you like and let go of the rest.”
Let’s create our own virtual version of this game for The 4th Time Around Baby Shower. Imagine we’ve decorated the room and used one of these lovely ideas from Pinterest:
