Today was BABY SHOWER day at work!!
I will tell you it is weird when you are having your second child because you've already been through the parenthood thing, so you don't need all the "stuff" that you didn't have with the first one...because you already have it. With that comes the fact that you don't really have any baby showers. It kind of makes me sad because I love a good get together, but I also loved putting the new things away after each shower. It also makes you feel kind of guilty because the 2nd baby is just getting the leftovers. BUT...that feeling left today because my school gave me and Allison (another teacher expecting her 2nd) a basket baby shower today. It was absolutely wonderful. I will tell you that I work with the best staff. They make it so much easier to go to work each day. I also love the team that I work with. I can't imagine going to work each day and not looking forward to seeing the people that I work with. I think I am very blessed because of this. ANYWAY...they threw us a wonderful shower with LOTS of yummy food. I didn't get a picture of the food, but it was beautiful and delicious!

The other Communication Arts teacher that I work with surprised me by having my kids make a book for John about being a SUPER big brother. I had no idea that she had done this and it is adorable (and hilarious)! I can't wait to read it with John.
A very good day indeed! I will now be going to put these fun items away in the nursery.
Good night!

I totally understand what you mean about having a baby shower. You almost feel guilty for wanting to have a shower. It is funny the second time around you really don't want the fun stuff you want the practical stuff that you will actually use. I love the little book that they made John, I bet he was super proud of it.
I also wanted to let you know I have a little bit of sunshine waiting at my blog for you!
