Okay so I'm talking baby shower, not bathing shower though I probably need one...
Anyhow, the lovely ladies Kristen, Liz, and Julie dreamed up a baby shower and the Playdate posse thought it was a FANTASTIC idea. The lucky ladies are Her Bad Mother, Mrs. Chicky, and Mrs. Chicken who are all having their second child sooner rather than later (most wish it was already over for Pete's sake but oh no, we all know it's up to baby).
The theme is "Share your favourite ass/advice (either your own or someone else's) when it comes to having two kids. What could you have done without knowing and what were you more than happy to hear?" (read all the details HERE because it's not just for those who actually have two or more kids - it's for everyone and there are prizes - super awesome prizes).
So what advice / assvice does a parent of one, like me, have to offer? Ummmm if I was looking for a slap around I'd say "sleep when the baby sleeps and then laugh hysterically like a hyena while the recipient cries because she realizes that advice didn't work with the first one, how's it supposed to happen with another child running around". But I'm not an asshole so let me think of something else.
How about "listen to your instincts, they didn't fail you the first time around and now they are rock solid because you are a rock star momma now". Yes, that's it. Take that expertise and tell the world to be damned.
That and also don't forget to take 10,000 pics of the baby like you did last time as not to create any feelings of inadequacy. I'm the third in the family and there are something like three photos of me before the age of 12. Trust me, I noticed that there are pictures of every-single-freakin' one of my oldest sisters naps, diaper changes, facial expressions, and other significant milestones. I noticed folks. Maybe you don't need to match bambino number one pic numbers, but don't forget to catch their moments too.
Oh I kid, who has time to take snaps while baby and tot wrangling?
Anyhow, I love all you ladies and only send you the most wonderful wishes and support. Remember to lean on your online blog buddies because that's what brings us together - common misery and love of the little things life has to offer and celebrity gossip (or is that just me?).
So join in - all the details can be found over at Playdate.
