Coed Baby Shower
Why not do a coed baby shower? It’s not a bachelorette party or a girl’s night out or has it been tradition to be only girls for so long because most guys are just not interested in them? In my opinion, this is a party for your soon to be daughter or son and fathers should be part of the celebration. Why should it be anything else than a joint event with friends and family and both parents? Well, my wife and I had just that, a coed baby shower. It was great! Every one that attended had a good time even when it started to rain! We had it catered with good food, lots of fruits and even coconuts to drink. I think it tells a lot about a guy if they want to attend a baby shower. Many of my friends were so excited for me and wanted to be there for my family and I. Isn’t that what it’s all about anyway? My good friend James walked in holding this huge white teddy bear. Those are the friends that I have in my life and I wouldn’t have it any other way. It was the first baby shower that almost all the guys that showed up had been to.
We had a few games of course, one being a questionnaire we called “Who Was It?” My wife put together facts about both of us through the age of one such as what time we were born or how much we weighed at birth and guests had to guess if it was about me or my wife. We also asked family and friends to write a note to Brayden to be given to him on his 18th birthday. I can’t wait to give him these wonderful heartfelt letters in which everyone took the time to write such beautiful words. My wife did a wonderful job picking the cake as well. It was a belly cake as she called it and it tasted just as good as it looked too! We had a great time in the pool and even had a water balloon fight with all the kids. Don’t forget the gifts for Brayden, which were amazing! We got everything we needed from our registry and more. The most exciting gifts were definitely the books with special notes that we had asked for instead of cards. I am very excited to read to my son.
