Mrs. Pool Shark’s Baby Shower


If you had asked me in all the years of mine and Mrs. Pool Shark’s relationship who would have a child first both of our answer would have been me. I am the one that is a traditionalist, I like to do things according to plan and I like order almost above anything else. Mrs. Pool Shark however is not a traditionalist, has never conformed to any type of cultural structure or timelines, I admire her for channelling her own path. That is why more than any other reason this day is such a gift. Not only is she pregnant and having a child before me but she is also having a traditional baby shower. I know to most that does not seem like a big deal but knowing her as I do it is a big deal.


I gave her the choice, I would either fly to Pittsburgh for the birth of the baby or for the shower, she picked the shower and I was so happy to be there for her special day.

Of course she got a ton of fabulous gifts, so many adorable cute pink baby clothes.


We played some traditional baby shower games, my favourite was guess the melted chocolate bar in the diaper.


And then there was the OH SO HILARIOUS game where Ms. Pool Shark was blindfolded had to guess what baby food was being fed to her.


Some of it according to her facial reactions did not taste very good.


Everything was perfect down to the little last details like these take away gifts of mini candy pacifiers.
