April Showers for Baby
Every baby needs a lap. ~Henry Robin
Saturday was the baby shower at my daughter's friend Rebecca's house.
Everyone had a wonderful time especially my daughter. She is so blessed with caring friends and coworkers. Most of the family was not able to make it ~ one daughter & family are in Hong Kong and the other daughter was not quite as far away as Hong Kong but unavailable nonetheless. My daughter's mother-in-law, Faye, was able to attend. It was an all ladies event except for a little one month old baby boy ~ who was adorably by the way. Yes, every baby needs a lap. I had just met this new mother and didn't feel brave enough to ask to hold the baby. Still I admired him from close by.
There was a lot of food ~ ladies love to eat! There were vegetables & dip, fresh fruit, humus & pita chips, croissant sandwiches (ham and cheese) with a few different spreads to add, and of course, cake. No one went home hungry!
My daughter received an abundance of gifts: blankets, clothes, diapers, books, and baby toys. The one gift that stood out to me was a rubber Duckie for the bathtub and evidently it changes color if the temperature of the water is too hot. What will they think of next?
I've tried to remember any bath toys I had as a child. I can't remember but I'm guessing it was just an empty cup and maybe a little boat. My children didn't have a rubber Duckie but would play with little cups or dolls or boats ~ nothing terribly fancy but they still had fun.
What kind of bath toys did you and/or your children play with?
