My good friend asked me yesterday to meet her for dinner as she had some personal things to discuss. So I arranged for dh to spend the evening with my girls and since yesterday I've been thinking of what to tell her and how to support. Well, we walk into the restaurant tonight and I see a bunch of moms I know having dinner and I hear words - your baby shower! !! I was so shocked and touched as I never expected nor have I told anyone if I wanted one.
My husband was in on it too.
Since we don't really need anything major, they got us a collective gift - a family photo shoot at a nice studio with 1 year validity so we can go and do it any time after the baby is born. Plus of course they treated me nice dinner, flowers and a beautiful cake - one of the ladies runs a home cake delivery and we usually order all cakes from her.
I had a dinner without children first time in 6 years. It was strange!
I seriously burst into tears when I realised where I walked into. It was sonly overwhelming and I really enjoyed it!
