A girlfriend of mine had a baby shower this past weekend, and we are so excited for her because she and her husband have been praying for this baby a long time. Even though I was not able to attend, one of the hostesses was kind enough to include me in this fun game!
It’s simple to do: all you need is a stack of diapers and some sharpies (colorful sharpies would be sweet). Each guest writes a funny greeting, encouraging message, or favorite verse on a couple of diapers. Then the diapers are all boxed back up and sent home with the new mommy.
Then, with each diaper change, she is cheered by a funny or encouraging message. [How nice would that be when it’s 2:00a.m.?!]
I love that!
I chose this verse (Psalm 127:3), one of my faves:
Sons are a heritage from the Lord; children a reward from Him.
And I thought this verse would put a smile on mama’s face (1 Corinthians 15:51)… It’s out of context… But it sure is funny in light of a new baby:
Behold, we shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed.
Oh my gracious! I just love a baby shower! Such a special time of celebration! And there are gobs of cute shower games out there.
One of my absolute favorite things to do when I am the hostess of a baby shower is to purchase a favorite children’s story book to use as a guest book of sorts, having each guest write a sweet message on the inside cover to the new mommy.
Of course, there’s the “guess the baby food game”–that’s always cute… Just puh-lease don’t make me try the baby sweet potatoes. They are gag-tastic.
So, what is your favorite shower game or gift? Do tell!
