A Baby Shower for Karmyn

Karmyn of Dreaming What Ifs is having a baby very soon. The awesome Swampwitch of Anecdotes, Antidotes, and Anodes is hosting a virtual baby shower on Friday, May 9th. The beauty of a virtual party is that the guests can attend from any place in the world. Of course, we will miss the ooohs and aaahs as Karmyn opens each precious gift.



First, I wish for Karmyn's little one (and for us all) a lifetime of joy, peace, and happiness. For the presents, every baby needs his own copy of the classic, Pat the Bunny.


Additionally, today's modern baby will delighted by the wonderful illustrated books by Sandra Boynton, for example Oh My, Oh My Dinosaurs!


I think all moms could use some help in the house after childbirth so I would like to provide full-time maid service for Karmyn for three years. After Karmyn recuperates from child birth, my final gift will be an afternoon at the spa complete with massage and any other pampering that Karmyn desires.

For Grandma Pamela of Dust Will Wait, I wish a beautiful electronic scrapbook for all those fabulous pictures that she is going to take of Karmyn and her family.


Now, for the game, which is a classic at baby showers...let's guess how many pieces of toilet paper it takes to surround Karmyn's gravid tummy. My guess is 18.

Those are very thoughtful gifts, but since there's a double up, I'll take one of the maid services if no-one wants it. I seem to be the only one who has given her whiskey so far...

Is Pat the Bunny in every house with a kiddo?
How many "pieces" of tisse or how many "rolls" of tissue. Just kidding Karmyn.
Thanks for attending the shower.

Baby showers are great events. For my best friend years ago we held a linen party, everyone brought along some linen to help out with her first little baby, and it was so much fun and she cried it was so nice :)

I have every Boynton ever made. Including the CDs which never leave the player in the car. And, if you are paying for maids, I'm sure I could use one!

The best of everything. My guess is 4.25 inches/sheet times X. I have yet to pick an X value.
