I feel like I just got ambushed, baby shower-style. So remember how I went to a friend's house yesterday to visit her and her new baby? Well, another friend came, too, and, when we got there, she had a cake and food and presents for me and my wee-one! Like a mini-baby shower! These girls both know I don't have many friends and have absolutely no family here in Boston so they decided to surprise me with a little baby shower, all my own.
One of the girls picked me up because she (imagine a thick Boston accent) "didn't want me driving on the Boston freeways at 8 and a half months pregnant." As we were driving, I looked in her backseat and saw a few presents. I mentioned how nice that was of her to bring a gift for our friend and then I laid into her for making me look bad because I didn't bring anything (we'd both been to her baby shower just a month ago). She laughed and said it was just something small for our 'new mom' friend. Little did I know they had conspired and gotten a few gifts for me.
I was overjoyed. And I may have teared up a little. It was so thoughtful. So unexpected. So sweet. Thank you both so much.
